You Are The Only One, 6x6 Inch Acrylic Painting by Kelley MacDonald

Nothing says 'Spring' like flowers!  I find it very hopeful to see yellow and blue bursts in the gardens and sides of the road.  In the language of flowers, Daffodils (even the mini's) means a few things - one of them being "You're The Only One".  Hyacinths - and these are Grape Hyacinths (blue) means "Constancy".  So I think they go well together, as a message as well as visually!  I love love loved painting the green glass mini bottle, too.  Picked it up at Brimfield, and it's a treasure.

I've been working at my 'other' job a lot lately, and that's a good thing because I like to eat, and turn lights on in my house!!!  :D BUT I did take a day out for fun, and met a couple of friends, and went to the Museum of Fine Art in Boston.  We took a rather unfortunate 'selfie', which I can post tomorrow if you want to see it.  Let me know.


  1. Probably goofy of me but that background color has me rather mesmerized. I keep going back to see if I can figure out what colors you used to get that color or if it is from the tube (I suspect the former, but what do I know?)... The pop of fresh flowers with their beautiful spring-like colors is just perfect!

  2. Perfectly Early Spring!

  3. Lovely! Thanks for the floral meanings and spring inspiration. I'm trying to secure a solid part-time job too for similar reasons. It's just part of life. Doesn't mean we can paint, be successful in the art world, have fun and hang with friends. xoxo

  4. Couldn't agree more, this painting certainly evokes Spring for me!


Awww THANKS for leaving a comment! You KNOW I love to hear from you!
