I took this photo from a friends house in CA, his house was like stepping into
the 1800's. He purposely had his whole house reconstructed to look
old, it was fun to explore. Wide knotty pine floors, the decor was also
so fascinating to look at. He is an architect, so the way he designed
it was unreal. He was kind enough to let me take pictures to paint from.
 One of the items he collects is dutch delft pottery.  This wonderful
setup caught my eye with the daisies resting in the delft pot 
next to the window, it had to be painted.

"Violets in White"

 "Violets in White"
oil, 8x10

My grandmothers violets were always blooming, not
mine, I have a hard time with violets. They are so
beautiful when I bring them home from the store but sooner
or later the blooms stop. I must be doing something wrong.
I put water in the saucer, fertilize them and I think they get
enough light which is indirect sunlight.
 I think I need to read up more on these flowers.
