Heavenly Scent : Narcissi Spring 2013

Narcissi painted in my Spanish Villa garden this morning.


The sunlight in Spain is  wonderful. It was impossible for me to ignore the temptation to paint in the garden this morning. I listened to the distant bells on the sheep grazing in the fields as I painted sweet perfumed narcissi. Their delicate flower heads have always been a favourite of mine as subjects  and the calm I felt whilst working on these was wonderful

Art can be therapeutic and relaxing once you get into that wonderful zone of your own world and no one else exists in it.

Heaven on earth!

I love your free style of painting. I just bought your book and DVD's. I think this is the way I have always wanted to paint but never had a teacher who could help me. Thank you so much.
