I received he flowers on these paintings from my gardener friend, Judith Miracle. She asked me to take part with her in a floral design show. Although I did with a bit of fear, as I had never done anything like that before, she helped me be brave. I took a bunch of flowers and props I use for my oil paintings. I was honored with the Petite Award for one of my small arrangements and I couldn't have been happier. Judith was so generous with her lovely flowers from the show and gave them ALL to me. I have several other paintings on the works in which I try my best to do them justice.
