Having put some flower paintings into an exhibition that is about to open and  having the good fortune in just selling one, when I was offered a place in a local exhibition at a garden centre, stocks of suitable paintings were low. So at present I am trying to get a few to put into this exhibition which starts next week. This is my first attempt. Normally I work in watercolour but I wanted a sustained saturation of colour and opted for acrylics. It is amazing how these crocuses take over the bare soil and blaze in the spring sunshine. They have now gone, taken over by daffodils which are themselves on the wane- spring is indeed uncoiling.

Other flower paintings are on my website:
