Violets No. 1

Violets No.1
16" x 12"
oil on panel

Growing up I loved Spring. Spring meant daffodils and violets. 
But not just a few violets, hundreds and hundreds of them grew
all over my families farm. I was always able to pick them
to my hearts content. I would bring them in the house and
 arrange them in my Mom's small glass jars and vases.
She would put them in her kitchen window sills
and decorate the bathrooms with them.
This painting reminds me of those moments.

My sweet little one picking from the same violet
patches that I did at her age.
