Here's the penultimate flower painting from the collection. This hyacinth is from a charity shop in Pimlico. It took ages to decide whether to get it or not, it's not really a thing of great beauty but I felt a bit sorry for it and I have grown to love it. The colours are very charming, pastel and old fashioned. The little ink bottle (?) is so odd but does a great balancing act and stops the whole picture being too fluffy - clever that.
SMOG ALERTI thought this a lovely sunny hazy morning view yesterday, the air didn't seem great though and later we got our smog reports, still, can't imagine living anywhere else.
