Something quite different today. This beautiful flower bouquet was brought to me this morning by Anapaula, a lovely young Italian woman, who enrolled in a private painting course with me. Since Monday we have spent four half days together, exploring different aspects of painting and having lots of fun. I was very touched when she presented this "explosion" of flowers to me on our final day and immediately decided to paint them.

Hi Liza,

I totally love day lilies and the red ones are the most amazing colour.
I just love this.

Hi Barbara,
Yes, it is a very beautiful bouquet, especially now that all the flowers have opened - so abundant!

Good decision! And it is an explosion. I love the freshness of your strokes here.
