Spring has Sprung

I fell behind in my posting, but not in my painting. Three weeks ago, I posted a portrait of my sister from a photo taken at least 65 years ago. Since then I have been working on florals. This first one is of a Magnolia Branch. Although I blocked it in rather quickly, it took another week to finish the details in this painting. I hope you like it.

This next painting was much more of a challenge for me. It had lots of detail in it that I struggled with. This painting took another two weeks of work, constantly checking to see if I got the contrast right. I hope you like this as well and would love to hear your comments.
