As sweetest lilacs waft their incense round,
Graceful spirea dons her bridal gown.
Purple-vested irises hold heads high,
And cheerful pansies smile up at the sky.
While June presides, coy summer marries spring,
As with joyful voices, birds are carolling.
I belong to a website called “Paint My Photo” where very generous photographers provide examples of their work for others to use for drawing or painting. Here is an oil pastel I did today from a gorgeous photo by S. Belle-Isle.
I wish I could get the rich deep purples of the pansies. God is the best artist.
