Peter and I went to Lowe's to buy windows yesterday and I grabbed a half-price Easter lily, even though it's not in the budget! At the moment I have a wealth of (perishable!) things to paint: these lilies, pale yellow tulips and daffodils with orange trumpets, and my magnolia, which is in bloom now. Of course, I also have a lot of work, which I'm not getting done because the desire to paint instead is so distracting! This is as far as I can, with deadlines on the horizon and many pages to go, get with these today. It's a start anyway.
