Lilacs and Forsythia

Today I'd like to share another little still life painting I just completed. It is oil on canvas, measuring 8x8 inches. It is done on a gallery wrapped canvas, and the edges are finished off in a color that compliments the painting:

still life impressionist painting

This painting reminds me of springtime in Virginia. Forsythia abounds, as do azeleas, dogwoods and lilacs. It's supposed to be a snowy slushy mess today so spring is little early yet. But the optimist in me still contends that it is not far off. Meanwhile I wear long johns and paint.
