This kitty in blossoms painting is my warm-up work to a painting of the double peony tulip. I'll work on it this spring.
I love that a friend thought these flowers were apple blossom, because I wanted to go for impressionism, with the flowers, and have different viewers see different flowers in the image.
I see magnolia soulangiana in the tree and my Renae thornless climbing rose in the foreground, but I didn't want it so defined that anyone knew for certain what the flowers were. The kitten in the garden is the story, and not the support characters. There are many parallels to painting and writing novels.
I find working loose in acrylics the hardest and I'm working hard to master that.
Time for some spring garden show and tell. :-) First my stone fruit trees. The dwarf peach tree, which is far from a dwarf. The peach fruit is so delicious it newer hits the basket, it goes straight into my mouth as it ripens.
Haha, yes, I have had too many peaches at once belly ache. I may freeze some this year. Vegemite in water in jars with entry holes are my fruit fry traps, to go up as soon as the blossoms fall.
The apricot tree. I had a freezer full of stewed apricots last year.
Ditto, re the stewed fruit for the nectarine tree, I bought for fifty cents. I had loads of naturally sweet stewed fruit to freeze and keep my in home grown fruit for months after the harvest season.
The original is painted on a canvas ready to stretch and frame by purchaser.
