Frangipani Tree

The start to Spring has been a warm one and we have been out in the garden weeding & tidying up.  Yesterday, we planted a Frangipani Tree.  I have always loved them - their shape, flowers and fragrance are amazing!  This one is just beginning to sprout and will soon be full of glossy leaves and white & yellow flowers.  I can see the tree from my dining room window and the scent will float around my front entrance.  Lovely!

I am still painting whenever I get the chance, this time Poppies in a glass vase.  A different palette and style for me.  I am enjoying creating this one!  Will show you when it's completed!

Happy Days

Gerberas in a Glass Jug

I love this painting, it makes me smile!  It's a completed commission for a lovely lady, so I hope it makes her smile too!
I'm still loving Cold Wax & Oils and have begun another painting, this one involving cat and fish interplay, some whimsy too, wait and see!
Life at the Villa is good and today I enjoyed celebrating a belated Fathers Day with my hubby and son and catching up with my daughter too!  Family always trumps all!
I hope your days are happy ones too!
