Pansies (8″ x 8″ oil on raised panel)

A small bouquet of pansies from the garden – subtle shades of velvet. I love how this one came out. It almost makes you want to put your nose to the painting!

Tom wrote a haiku that perfectly evokes the day.

butterflies gather
fluttering in shadowed light
lazy summer days

  1. I love the lighting and texture! Simply beautiful, and so very reminiscent of the “essence” of a Renoir….this is a masterpiece. Again I just love the lighting so very much!

    1. Thank you! This one ended up being one of my favourites of the year just because it felt so good. I was really happy that friends bought it to celebrate their anniversary while it was still wet. Maybe I will see it again when visiting is possible! 🙂
