The New Year is right around the corner!

It was my birthday a couple of days ago and Dave gave me these flowers. I decided to paint them today.  I might add some touches tomorrow, but I do like the simplicity. I hope you had a great holiday and that you'll have a wonderful New Year! What have you been doing/painting lately?

Gorgeous!!! I enlarged it and soaked up the pleasure of the luscious paint quality.
You have to love the way you did the glass. Extra FABULOUS, my friend.
Happy New Year, Celeste. I am going to enjoy another year of following your
wonderful blog.

Beautiful bouquet. The red in the background add dramatic to the painting.
Bonne année et bonne santé 2016 !

So good to see you posting again, Celeste - I was getting worried.

Love the painting, it glows.
