Spring Flowers

7"X5 " Oil on Board

Talking to my sister in London this morning, I was reminded that it is already Spring there. Here it isn't all that cold at the moment (0 C) but a long way from Spring. We still have several inches of slushy snow and a forecast calling for -14 C tomorrow night.
At the market this morning I fell victim to these little pots of flowers. I am not very good at painting flowers in oils yet, my botanicals have always been done in watercolour, I guess I need to practise some more!
