Katie's Flowers

6x6 Oil on Ampersand Gessobord

This will be the last of the flower paintings for a while. These beauties are past their prime. Luckily more flowers are available when I am ready to paint them again. By the way, Katie is my graddaughter. The first of nine to be born 13 years ago. She gave me the vase and the flowers remind me of her sunny personality!

On another note - I am sure you heard that Tony Curtis passed away. He was in one of my all time favorite movies, Some Like It Hot with Jack Lemmon and Marilyn Monroe. Even thinking about it will bring a smile! Thanks to YouTube I can share with you a clip from that movie. Click HERE and ENJOY!


  1. Linda, I love the brushwork and the light shinning on the flowers!! Beautiful!

    So sorry to hear about Tony Curtis. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Really pretty painting. I also love those ampersand panels. I look forward to seeing more of your work.

  3. -I was sorry to hear about Tony Curtis...I know he was 85, but 85 doesn't seem as old as it used to seem! Remember him in "The Defiant Ones"? He was wonderful. Love this sunny painting--the variety of yellows.

  4. Great color and perspective Linda!! I too love Some Like It Hot - he was a fine actor.


Thank you for taking the time to view my blog and leaving a comment! I read and appreciate each and every one!!
