Oil on canvas, 2018 (20” x 20”)
The Forsythia, which blooms in the early springtime in Bend, inspired this painting. I walked by one every time I parked my car to go into work. These flowers gave me such a sense of joy as I begin my workday, as well as when it’s been a long day and it’s time to go home. This is a happy painting, full of joy and life bursting forth.
