The series of 5″x5″ oil paintings continues. Delightful to paint in series, which can either stop or continue, as the fancy dictates.

A favorite flower for painting in cold weather,¬†hellebores are ¬†also sometimes the only flower available to paint. This is another of the small oils, 5″x5″, which are intended to hang in groups.

Another of the series of West Virginia wildflowers, created after several fine days of botanizing in the mountain woods, filled with fabulous wildflowers, only to be seen by those who know where to look. I was fortunate in having an expert guide, my cousin Heather, who has explored these woods for many years. Thanks, Heather!

Rhododendron

Spring hikes through the mountains of West Virginia will usually discover large stands of rhododendrons like this one. They are a fine sight, though sometimes overwhelming in their size and strength. this is another in the series of small watercolors painted to benefit the Kump Education Center in Elkins WVA.
