A small commission for a friend's wife.
8x8" on a deep square canvas, based loosely on a ref. in the RIL by gnu ......... we do need more bluebell pics in the RIL, so if you have any, please upload 'em ;) ;)

Yesterday evening I was reading a poem written by a 10 year old girl, which was titled 'bluebells'. I don't remember the verses, but to see this beautiful painting this morning - 'bluebells', is a rather heart-warming experience. Looks as though the bluebells are nodding happily in cool morning breeze.
Wonderful composition and light.
nice piece Maureen , I love the way you have used the colours and the simple compostion gives it a good clarity to the image.

I second what Elaine said!
Bluebells are so quaint and I wish there were more around. I have seen oodles of them along the Natchez Trace but it is difficult getting pictures of them.

Thank you ladies :D
Patti - I have oodles of them in my garden in spring - they're like weeds and have to be dug up to control!:rolleyes:

Maureen. This is lovely but Spring seems such a long way away. You have made me look forward to that lovely time of the year. Thank you.

Chammi - thank you - glad it brought a little cheer for these dreary days!
It looks even colder on the Continent than over here! :eek:
