Flowers, Glasswork and Pottery

(These Paintings are up for sale)

Every spring I’ve been painting the wild flowers which are most of the flower paintings I’ve made but always with glass unless they’re growing somewhere.  Spring is the best time for me when all the colors in Madrid burst out at once.
