This lovely little piece of Fine Art is ready to go to your home. I took two bunches of perky radishes and placed them on my white plate with blue and white checkered rim. I love the color and the look of radishes, and together with this country style plate it feels complete. I painted this in my impressionistic style, with a loose and watery touch. There is something about these colors that make me think of a nice cheerful kitchen. I like a watercolor to looked like it isn't overworked, leaving some of the details to the viewer. I painted these radishes on a standard size paper, so it would be easier and less expensive to frame. Just a standard matting and wastercolor frame, will make it stand out in any kitchen.

"Bright Pink Roses", 12" x 12", Watercolor. As many of you know I love flowers so much, roses in particular. Actually the one I am painting is often my favorite at the time. This painting was inspired when several days ago I went out to find some flowers to cut and bring in to paint. I brought them in using my white garden basket, and then went hunting for the right vase to put them in. Lately I have been in the mood for glass canning jars. This jar was shorter and rounded which gave me a little challenge. Canning jars always bring my own Mother and Grandma to mind. In this case since I bought it later when I had my own children with me so it remindeds me of them. I had two of the children with me when we went looking around at an old antique shopping haunt where I purchased this. I trimmed the roses a little bit and arranged them in fresh water. When I found these roses in my garden I noticed the metal tag had fallen off..Urggg. I have a schematic with name and such so I will update and retag it. For this painting I will name them "Bright Pink Roses". I love the color and it seems to make people happy when looking at them. Enjoy! Please contact me if interested in purchasing this painting. email@example.com. Thank you and enjoy! Ellie

"Flowers and Fruit", 11" x 11", Original Watercolor. This cheerful watercolor was inspired when I went looking for some pretty flowers to buy and paint. I painted "Blue Cornflower", which sold right away and l needed to keep painting. The flowers were still fresh and I really wanted to paint using similar colors of cobalt blue and yellows. I traded the pitcher for a smaller one and then started at it.(I love those dishes) It was a lovely day out and I could feel the energy as I paint right next to the window. When I finished, the painting was a little unsettling to me until I realized it needed to be cropped. I LOVE it now after making it square, a wonderful shape for many paintings. When I look at it now, I see luscious colors of cheerful energy. Wow..I should bottle that energy! It is available if you are interested. firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you, Ellie
