smilla and roses


(11x15)
A small numbers of details to finish here, but I can't be sure I'll get to them this weekend!
Yesterday I did another drawing of Smilla, this time with gladiolas and hostas. I'm going to keep this series with Smilla going as long as I can, and as long as Smilla cooperates with new poses. 
Spending some time this weekend planning a bulb garden in an about 4x8-foot patch just inside my gate: the irises and daffodils were so beautiful this spring, next spring I want many more, and allium, lilies, and anemones too!

Not even going to tell you how much I like this... and to answer your question yes, I think that's what it's called. Who came up with that name ??? A frog? and better yet ,who came up with the idea of holding the brushes while you paint..? I've had mine for a couple years and love it.. always looking for another.. BJ

White roses are my favorite roses and you've handled them just absolutely beautifully, Laura! Next to Smilla, the contrast is just truly exquisite!

Your portrayal of "Smilla" is lovely.

The kitty-and-flowers paintings are amazing! Such good composition in every instance! Laura, they will make such delightful cards!

I'm loving this series! We should be planting bulbs now?? (Can you tell I know nothing about gardening?)
