I believe I must be anxious for spring to arrive. While at my local grocery store I spotted these pansy's and was compelled to buy them to bring some spring into my studio. As they sat around looking so perky and springy I decided to attempt to do a painting of them. At first I only had the three pots in the piece. Then feeling the painting wasn't saying anything I thought to add the bird. When I finished I felt like I had created a Hallmark greeting card. So, I took the painting to my Thursday painting group for a critique and as I thought my fellow painters said 'take the bird out", but leave the flower lying on the bottom left. I still feel I have to work on the flower pots.
