"My Front Yard", Gardens & Parks, Lynn Cohen


On Sunday I just could not stop drawing and painting!
 
 
It's obvious that spring has sprung in our California front yard at home.
This beautiful bush is one huge bouquet of pink/rose colored flowers with just a bit of green showing through. Multiply the lavender ten fold and the yellow small lilies too. I would have been out there all day and gotten sunburned had I drawn them all.
Such a joy to share this with you all, especially those of you still dealing with snow and cold.
Hopefully, this will brighten your day where you are too.

  1. Wow, Lynn, it is unbelievable that you have so many flowers allready! What a beautiful painting! It really brightens my day. I was just sketching a snowy landscape in my front yard! With morning sun. I can imagine how beautiful you have in your garden. Thanks for sharing and cheering up us who still have snow (and -5C).

    1. I'm glad this brightened your day. It was VERY BRIGHT here! And yes, in California it is springtime, but we are not gloating. We are in the worst drought in the history of the state and we are sorely needing rain! Please do a rain dance for us, thanks!

    1. I am happy I planted this one. It's been a faithful beauty for the almost 26 years since we moved into this house and chose plants for our gardens.

    1. I'm sure you will, eventually; and by then we will be boiling in heat of summer.

  7. Don't you just love those days when the muse is by your side and making art is like floating on a cloud? Me, too! We have those pink bushes here too. I wonder what they are? I have been trying to emulate this style, but so far not having much luck. Love this painting!

    1. I think the bush may have "tea" in its name. Japanese tea? something like that if I recall correctly.
      Emulate my style? Wow, that's quite the compliment from a seasoned artist as yourself. Thank you so much.
