 Tina, I absolutely love this painting! It truly is beautiful!  I love the little bench and the pot of flowers and the flowers growing up the wall and.... and.... and..... ;D

I took a trip a few years back to a England, Germany and France.  I love the way there are flowers everywhere.  It seemed like no yard or wall was left bare. Everything was so lush and colorful!!!   Unfortunately, it was with a tour group so I didn't get to spend much time in any of the places.

Hi Tina,
how did you mix these colours? They are so beautiful. Everything looks so real, cozy and the atmosphere is great. I want to live there too. You did a great job. And who cares about perspective? Just to look at these paintings make me feel good.  :) So if I should feel sad one day I know where to get some positive input to feel better again.

Tina! What a beautiful painting  :clap:  I too like the little bench and how its importance in the picture is flanked by the flowers. It draws the viewer in and we beg to sit inside your painting basking in the sun with a glass of orange!
Well done  :clap: :clap:
