Cyclamen on Canvas

Oils on canvas 16" x 12"

Two weekends in a row I have managed to fit in some painting time... Wow, I could be on a roll here!

I really enjoyed getting the contrast of light and dark in this.  I know the flowerheads could do with a little more work, but overall I'm quite pleased with how it turned out.

I've had a great weekend.  Yesterday was family day which was wonderful and today devoted to painting!  Yay!

Oils on canvas board 16" x 12"

Today was the first time in such a long time that I made time to paint. It was an amazing feeling being back at the easel, smelling those glorious smells that come with painting in oils and just forgetting everything else but the process.

It's just a start, nothing fab, but I love it anyway partly because it is the first in too long a time and secondly, because geraniums always remind me of my childhood when my dad enjoyed growing them and always of course in terracotta pots.

I hope this is the beginning of my return to painting.  I have missed it so much.
