A tulip (or a peony)

I had a painted canvas I had lying around that I did not like at all. So with some inspiration from a painting of tulips I was gifted some time ago, I decided to paint right over the previous image. It only took me an hour, but I quite like the loose effect. Oil on canvas, 30 x 40 cm.

Almond blossom

My almond tree needed pruning, but it was also about to bloom! I collected almost all branches with budding flowers and put them in all the vases I could find. It was that perfect moment in time when the nature is full of promises – all those buds full of life, not yet spent. 30cm x 40 cm canvas.

Bowl of Lemons

I am only beginning to sort all the impressions I had from the Italy trip. This painting is based on a photo I took in the garden of our hotel that was hosting a wedding the night before. And just like that, there was this magnificent bowl of lemons seemingly forgotten on an empty garden table. Oil on canvas, 30cm x 40 cm.
