Excellent, Rob! Lovely color and light. The utility tower in the background makes it seem like you got a 'star' for your effort.

You caught the Spring feel of this beautifully Rob! You bring it to life for those of us who don't experience those lovely 'in between' European seasons of Spring and Autumn.

Blazing light in foreground and wonderful warmth in the mid ground hedge. Another Rob gem.

Hi Rob!

Backlit and beautiful...
Filled with radiant Spring light.
A wave of lively daffodils-
Makes all the world right!

Your picture says all of this... and more!

Another gem!

Good Painting!
Warm regards,
Bruce

hi Rob,
There's something so exciting about the sun shining through,always fills me with hope...i can see why it captured your attention; you've done a lovely job capturing the effect here. You've captured the 'little sanctuary' feeling of the place in the one below called 'Anna's house'; i think i would like to eat cake there too. (i always like to eat cake! ha!)

Indeed Rob, a light bulb in every flower! That's the reason for the utility tower I reckons you have to power them all up.

Lovely little sketch, ...
