Memory, Oil, 10x10

Thinking of my Dad, who passed away 6 years ago this week, and I always like to associate Pussy Willows with him, and this time of year in general.  My son Conor made this wonderful vase with a blue glaze and a design left unglazed that looks 'wrapped around'.  A bit of a change from glass and ice, I'll tell you!
This is also not for sale, at least till after June....

And THANK you for all your comments - you really keep me going!
I'm taking Good Friday off, and I'll see you on Monday.  I hope if you celebrate a religious holiday this week, it's a good one, and you enjoy your family!

    kelly, i really like this painting. rich colors and a variety of brush strokes, from bold to soft. i found myself looking at it closely in every area. very nice feeling emanates. for your private collection, i hope.


    PS i think there may be a cat hair right in the middle? nice to know you have company while you paint.

  12. Love the vase! Nice job -pussy willows are nostalgic of childhood for some reason - aren't they? Or maybe just for me. . . I always get so happy when I see them, same for milkweed. . . buttercups. . . and fluffy dandelions ready to be blown!
