Signs of Spring

Today's painting is a watercolor of springy azaleas in a floral arrangement.  This painting is 9" x 9" and is painted on 140 lb. cold-pressed watercolor paper.    I love azaleas - they are so delicate and beautiful and I tried to capture that delicate quality.  I surely am in my "purple" period recently!  Well - I am getting older and you know what they say about older women liking purple!!!

Yes I do know and they say you usually couple it with a red hat! LOL I'm wearing mine right now. At any rate, Barb, this is so beautiful and indeed springy and refreshing!

Sherry - I am not a red-hatter, but there are many of them in this area. Thanks for commenting!
