The lilies of spring, bring to mind the start of a new growing season!!  This is a vase of white Easter Lilies, (Longiflorum Hybrid).  Although I enjoy all the colours of flowers, white flowers are typically my favourite.  Nothing could be fresher to me than white flowers set against the green foliage!!

Ranunculus 36 x 36, acrylic on canvas

Flowers set in a mason jar, seems to a bit of theme for me when I have been painting flowers.  The flowers in this painting are called Ranunculus and they can grow in your garden from bulbs.  Ranunculus flowers used in the floral industry typically have loads of petals tightly wrapped around the central core.
