This is a painting of several crocuses from our garden when early February sun brought them to life.

13"x 10" Watercolor on Arches 140 lb. Cold Press using Daniel Smith watercolors

Here is the link to my new calendar:


crocus, gold, pat yager, purple, spring, watercolor, yellow

Besides photographing things I find beautiful, I love to paint in watercolor! It can be loads of fun, creating its own beautiful color combinations as they run together on the paper, or it can be surprisingly independent, doing “its own thing” where you pretty much have to give up control – one never knows! That’s all just part of the fun!

    This is sensational Pat! Love those colours. Crocusses (or should that be Crocii – LOL) are such a great example of how ‘Ma Nature’ knows what colours go together, and you have captured them so beautifully in this painting.

  • You always say the nicest things, dear Lynda! Thank you! The purple and gold combination has always been a favorite of mine, especially when I see them in some of your gorgeous pastel paintings!

    This is beautiful, Pat. They are blooming in my garden right now!

  • I’m glad you can enjoy them in “real life” right now, Fran! We had a sunny spell about a month ago, so this painting is from a few photos I took at that time. I’m so pleased you like it! Thank you!
