In New York City where I live, there are flowers everywhere when Spring comes. The opportunity to run around and get photographs of the flowers makes my pocket bulge with a point and shoot camera with its 20 megapixels and great macro option.
Nearly every other day, it rains or is cold and windy that makes drawing or painting outside not practical to do, but on the other days, the flowers call me to come paint.
Inspiring touches of sunlight brighten the petals and leaves with a sparkle that I’m constantly enticed to try and capture in paint and in photographs. The colors are so beautiful.
