Azalea and Jade

Since it's spring, I've felt like trying some paintings of flowers...a closer view instead of my usual landscapes.

The azaleas below were painted at our local Arboretum last week.  The cafe there, the Peacock Cafe, had a peacock appropriately posing for photos on the sign.  At Arlington Garden I tried a potted "sunset" variegated jade plant which was such a bright yellow that I couldn't resist.  And last Saturday I sketched my friend Barbara's potted porch plants.  I've found that I need much more practice on flowers!  That does sound like a fun goal.
