Thanks, Rob, for showing us that you don't have to go to the bulb fields to find beautiful colours.

By continuing the blue into the tree behind, you have made that sunlit patch seem really bright.

Hi Rob!.... Wonderfully rich and dramatic use of colour... in both places!

Just proves that colour comes from the heart... and mind...out of a pure sense of imagination and joy!

Unicorns you say?....Paint on!

Good painting Warm regards,
Bruce
