Viola--The Face of Spring

The weather has been storming for the past three days--drenching rain, wind, and lightening. In spite of it, little Violas are showing their faces in yards up and down the block. They look at the weather and all its energy like curious children anticipating the sunshine. The glimmer of spring these little flowers bring is what inspired this 5x7 inch painting. I'm not typically a painter of florals, but with ugly weather, their color is encouraging my efforts. When this one dries, it will be listed for sale in my online gallery, Small Impressions. Drop in and see the small format oil paintings that are for sale there.
