Water Can with Flowers

Hey Friends, Wanted to show you this painting I just finished. It's one of my fav's. I love watering cans and have several. I think they make a lovely container for a flower painting. What say you? I like the metal cans, even when they are rusty.

For the life of me I can't remember the name of the flower in the can. I know it doesn't matter, but it bugs me when I can't remember a detail. I'm thinking I want to paint this in a larger size. It would be ready for a local show first part of May. Do you think this would be a good gift for Mothers Day or a gardener's birthday? I had better get out to the studio and slap some paint around.

Happy Trails.

That is absolutely beautiful! I love how the flowers are just spilling out of the watering can, it looks so perfect. And when you ask if it would be a good gift for mother's day or for a gardener, my answer is yes! I think pretty much anyone would love to receive it actually. :-)

Sue this is absolutely GORGEOUS! Yes it would make a great Mother's Day gift or for any occasion. I agree, watering cans make great containers. And yes you should definitely paint a larger version of this for a show. I think it would be terrific.

Hey, how do you like being affiliated with Design Style Guide? You can email me rather than address it here. Just curious. Thanks.
