Lilacs and love

My parents celebrate their wedding anniversary every month. That's how much they love each other -- or how much my mom loves a celebration! This month was their anniversary number 444, so to celebrate the grand day, I painted this picture.

Lilacs were their wedding flower; on the kitchen table was a huge bouquet of the fragrant blooms. As I gave them the painting, Dad said, "Wow. It's so realistic, I can smell it!"

"Yes," I replied, "Aren't you glad I didn't give you one of cattle?"

And we smirked.

Poplars




I recently painted a series of seven poplar pictures... two have already sold, and one is showing this month for sale in Edmonton's Harcourt House. They're 12"x12" acrylic on canvas.
