Cottage Garden Signs

Good Friday Morning.  I am stuck in a hotel room so no garden tour with my coffee this morning.  It is taking me a bit to unglue my eyes.  It was not a restful night for me but the power of caffeine will help.  Especially as I am not used to it, we normally drink decaf.

I have some photos I took of my garden yesterday but I will save those for tomorrow.  I wanted to share a set of garden signs I recently painted for a customer. She wanted them for her grand children and she let them choose the flowers. It was so fun to read each order, she gave their ages, the youngest was 3. 
I wish I had a better picture of this one.  The lilies were a first for me and I love how they turned out but the photo does not show them well.

I really should’ve taken a close up of them but I was in a hurry.
Coco chose lilies, red rose and a peony.


Rio, I assumed is a boy, he chose bluebells and peonies. 


Lilah chose bluebells, lilacs and roses. 


Stella (the 3 year old) wanted roses, violets and lots of color.  I had meant to put the yellow flowers I added to Lilah’s on Stella’s but in the chaos of the moment switched them inadvertently.


I don’t think Stella minded.  I received a sweet note from their Grandmother that they all loved them.
This was a fun group to paint, I had not painted peonies before or the lilies so it pushed my boundaries a bit.
We have a full weekend ahead.  I will share my latest blooms in my garden as I can.  I also had a sweet surprise from my chickens. 

Until then…may your days be filled with sunshine and sweet blossoms.

Feel free to come see what I have been up to in the studio!
