Oh how I love these lilacs!  I can remember my grandma bringing in these blooms when I was very small.  She would hold them down for me to smell their heady sweet fragrance, then put them in a vase to waft into the rooms of the house.  I look forward to these every year, and they are especially beautiful this season!  I think they are grateful that we trimmed out some limbs from overhead last year, giving them plenty of sunshine.  I hope I get a chance to paint them in oil before they fade!  Painting number 2659 in 2659 days.

  1. I really like lilacs. I had a beautiful row of them when I lived in N. Idaho. I wish I could create like you to paint my memories.
