Floral Fridays...Flowers as art


Flowers as art.  There is nothing that inspires me more than nature! So when I heard what the theme was this month for Floral Fridays, I was excited to pull out my paints.  One in the works....


Spring Hellebores 




Have a rocking weekend everyone!!!!


Floral Friday is a monthly photography project with different themes each month. This series is about fun and taking time out to smell the flowers. To play along next time, please email Trishie at Under Lock and Key for next month's theme.

  4. Nicole - this painting is so beautiful! It makes me smile with its lovely, soft colors! You have truly captured the beauty of the hellebore. They look just like the ones I recently planted.
