flowers in the hair, flowers everywhere ...




Oh it is true that the earth is laughing lately with flowers! They are everywhere!



Etian keeps popping dandelion flowers in my pockets, Semay literally picked ALL...and I mean ALL my tulips in one swoop and brought it proudly to me behind her back. 


 It might just be my favourite week  where no matter where you look a blossom popped open where only two weeks ago all branches were bare.


This week at Inspiration Avenue the theme is "Sad girl with flowers in her hair". I can't imagine being sad if I had flowers in my hair, but I did find this painting I did a while back and she actually does look sad. 

Much like the blossoms she appeared out of nowhere. I was planning to paint over an old abstract I didn't like, wanting just a white canvas to start again. But then a dress started to appear and soon my trusty skewer came out and I scratched  the face and flower.

I'm also submitting it to Paint Party Friday - to see some amazing artists hop on over to these sights.

Have a wonderful week everyone!

Lovely and I think she could be sad with flowers in her hair if she was rejected by someone she admired!!

Your world of flowers is wonderful, I felt like I was riding towards you on my bicycle, your colours light and so feminine. Beautiful.

Your painting is beautiful! It does seem to have popped up like the spring daffodils.
