"Daffy Daffodils", 5"x 7", Watercolor (SOLD)

"Daffy Daffodils" is a 5" x 7", Watercolor. I painted this from a photo taken in Napa, California. These Daffodils were clustered at the base of a fence at Mayacamas Vineyards. They were standing so cheerful and proud, as daffodils must do. The painting is small but so is the price. The cost of this painting is $50.00 and it will be matted ready for a frame. I love to paint flowers and often settle into pinks but sometimes I need to go the opposite way and get a splash of warm colors. I hope you like "Daffy Daffodils".and if interested, please just contact me. Thank you Ellie

"Antique Cabbage Roses", 9 x 11", Watercolor (SOLD

"Antique Cabbage Roses", 9" x 11", Watercolor. This watercolor painting was inspired by the painting I did a few months ago called, "Solvi's Roses". I generally don't paint something more than once because I would not want to lose spontaneity. I didn't feel that happening so kept painting with pleasure. Each year I look forward to the new fresh blooms in my rose garden and I am never disappointed. The price of this painting is $200 without matting or frame. I will be happy to get those for you at my cost. If you have any questions or comments please contact me at I hope you enjoyed looking at "Antique Cabbage Roses" Thank you, Ellie

"Crocus", 11" x 15", Watercolor (SOLD)

"Crocus" 11" x 15", Watercolor. I painted this in my studio from a photo taken by some very good friends who live in Gettysburg, PA. This photo in one of a series taken out in their "Cottage Gardens". They love flowers, vegetables and boat scenes and they know I do too. I occasionally paint from photos given to me because this puts a fresh new light on a subject. I normally do my own photography so this lets me see things in a different way. My friends are very special to me and I treasure their pictures too. This painting is SOLD, but there will be more. I do hope you enjoyed looking at it. Thank you, Ellie
