Wine of the Mystic

Taken from the title of Paramahansa Yogananda's interpretation of ''The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, this drink refers to Spiritual Wisdom that make the seeker 'drunk with ecstasy'.  That's my kind of wine press!

Heart of Gold

This painting was an attempt to simplify a busy bunch of Freesia flowers.  I set them in strong morning light.   I hope you can almost smell their aroma!

Seduction

The fields where the poppies hide have 'called my name' a number of times since I first saw them.  I hope there will be some stray blooms when our group is there mid-June.  By necessity, I have become pretty satisfied with painting them, and letting my imagination go for a walk.
