More flowers

It's the time of year when we wish desperately for flowers!

So here are my wishes, also thinking of how these vases could hold real ones, maybe as Valentine's gifts.

But wait, this one could also be a drinking cup and used for anywhere in the home!

Today's quote:

An optimist isn't necessarily a blithe, sappy whistler in the dark. To be hopeful in bad times is not just foolishly romantic... If we remember those times and places where people have behaved magnificently, this gives us energy to act, and at least the possibility of sending this spinning top of a world in a different direction.
Howard Zinn


  1. These are really lovely and an interesting technique.

  2. There will be sunflowers and black-eyed Susans . . . someday . . .

    1. I may only grow flowers this summer. I think I need to focus upon beauty. It's the job I have taken on as an artist!


Looking forward to hearing from you! Since I didn't know the 1000+ people who supposedly looked at my blog the other day, I'm back to moderating comments. If that doesn't help, I don't know why blogger doesn't have a filter that stops this hacking...
