Daffodils & Tulips

It was a very difficult start to Spring this year with the unexpected loss of my beloved brother. Although I try to keep my personal life and struggles out of my art blog, this is where I am and what I’ve been going through. I just thought I should let you all know.

Today I have some pretty pictures of the daffodils in my garden and a few other paintings to share.

The daffodils this year did not disappoint. Theyโ€™ve since faded but I did manage to get some nice photos when they were at their peak.

I really love this close up view.

Once again no luck with tulips this year. The critters outside have enjoyed snacking on them. I think I will just plant something else in the fall.

I painted some pretty pink and red tulips in my sketchbook. These playful loose watercolor flowers are so cheerful.

I also filled a page in my sketchbook with butterflies. I used watercolor brush pens for this and really like how it turned out.

I hope you are inspired to create art and do something you love. Creating art has always been very therapeutic for me. I shall continue to lean into my art and give myself time and space to heal.

Until next time share a smile and sprinkle kindness everywhere.

  1. Patty….I am so sorry about your brother. I always wanted a brother but ended up with two sisters …one of which we lost when she was 23 years old …after open heart surgery. My pain at the time was for my parents. I had two little boys and could only imagine what they were going through. Since then I too have “lost” a son and it is something that I wouldn’t wish on any one. But…My God is good and heals all wounds….in time….ps. I’m sure your art brings you peace.

  3. Oh that’s so tough, Patty Anne and I’m sad for your pain. I must say that your soft, colourful, flowing, painted tulips are simply glorious.. I love that painting! Take care.


  4. Oh Patty Anne, I am so sorry for your loss. I appreciate that you share the spring with us here in these beautiful ways. I find focusing on butterflies in deep grief is a comfort, the creatures who so gracefully show us the art of transformation. Take care of yourself during this very difficult time.
