    Purple Flower Blooms

    This garden variety floral art piece is painted in an old window sash, measuring 23″ x 28″,  with a varnish finish over the original worn paint.  It was done in such a manner to remind us that beauty can still be found in unlikely places.  These blooming buds may at times be found in the flower bed belonging to a withered old lady, or equally as likely in a lovely park.

    Being very fond of flora and fauna, I have my own flower beds to tend to when the season for it arrives. When I was younger, I was a little carried away with them, and did end up removing some further away from the house.  but life has a way of moving on, and I began working full time. They were just too difficult to get to on a regular basis.  My daughters have made donations to the cause over time, and I always look forward to new additions.  Those that my daughters bring seem to fare better than any I have bought in the past. The purple flower blooms are great, but the ones I am looking forward to this year are the bleeding hearts in a bright red.  Unless there was winter kill, I look forward to three plants.

    One day while baby sitting for a friend, the six year old girl began picking small weeds out of my gardens.  I watched for a few minutes without commenting.  I then asked, “How did you know which ones to pick out?”  She replied “My grandfather taught me which ones are the weeds.”  What a charming young lady, and a wonderful grandpa!

    All of my reverse painting on glass is for sale.
