All Prim and Rose-Like
Day 29

© A.K.Simon -All Prim and Rose-Like 8x10 oil

Don't you just love this time of year in Ohio when the stores are gearing up for the spring planting? They now have all the little violets and primrose in the neon-colored pots on the greenhouse shelves.  I thought I would show this work now because the primrose is one of the first flowers of spring (crocus are already up too). Here's a little Wikepedia fact: ("Primrose" is ultimately from Old Frenchprimerose or medieval Latin prima rosa, meaning "first rose"). I just thought it looked so prim and proper sitting on the bureau top - which is really kind of funny because it's hard to be prim and proper when dressed in neon! The painting reflected in the mirror is a work in progress by Robert Warren. I am soooooo glad to be on this side of winter in Ohio! Saw the daffodil buds today - hmm, now where did I put that blue vase?
