Pansy Flower Painting

Pansies were my favorite flower when I was a little girl.  They had such large petals and wonderful rich colors.  My Aunt  Helen, who worked at a greenhouse, introduced me to them.  She brought a large pot full of their showy blooms to set on my grandparents porch.  I thought they were so pretty and instantly fell in love with them.

Now I have many favorite flowers, but pansies will always remind me of being a little girl and the first flower I discovered.  Painting this pansy was such a fun walk down memory lane. The paint just flowed onto my canvas.

I hope you have a wonderful, creative, day, Janell
