Fleeting Beauty

My cholla cactus in my front yard treats us to some of the most beautiful, waxy-appearing blooms early in the spring. The blooms usually only last for a day or two, and then quickly disappear. I painted a couple of the blooms, and this is the result of my effort.

This painting just received a "First Place In Oils" award at the Glendale Art Competition, 2011.

Heralds Of Spring

This is a painting of some daffodils, that I am calling, "Heralds Of Spring", since daffodils are usually the first flowers to appear after a long winter.
