Flower Shop III
Framed, 6x8 oil on museum quality board
Available soon at upcoming show
 6x8, oil on museum quality board.

I am painting a series of flower shops for an upcoming show at the New Mexico Cancer Center Gallery, a NM top ten gallery. More information will be posted soon.

Oslo, Norway,  New Year's Eve Day, 2013, shops were open though little else was.  The day was misty, warm, and no snow was anywhere to be seen.  On this day in Oslo there was about six hours of daylight, an increase of three hours over that which I had experienced only days earlier in the Arctic.

 This was a most unusual trip, with many experiences never had before and likely never to be experienced again.  I am truly grateful and
recommend we always be ready to delight in the


  1. This is a beautiful painting and I look forward to seeing more of your paintings for the show.

    Your tip experience sounds awesome! I love traveling, but sunshine is a must for me. Otherwise I wilt.

  2. Oh Lisa, I so agree about sunshine. I live in very bright sunny NM, and during my 12 days in Norway, I never saw the sun. I tried to concentrate on Norway's beauty and its uniqueness. Once home, I opened up to the sun with joy.

    1. I am so glad to see my comments went through here yesterday. I received an email saying they were not delivered. Weird.

  3. Flower shops are such a great subject matter and you've brought real light and color out here.

  4. Love this. It is full of life and colour.

    Good luck with the show. When is it?

  5. I love the color of the lady's jacket in with all the flowers. Makes me think of spring.
    I read Lisa's comment and your reply and agree about the sun.

  6. This is beautiful Carol. All the bright colors just draw you in! Good luck with the show, can't wait to see more :)

  7. What a journey. I love to go to Iceland and my daughter and son-in-law are going to Stockholm tomorrow just as our cousins are coming to NYC from they will pass in the airport and we will see our cousins and they won't! Wonderful evocative painting. Having had chemo and rads I would have loved to gaze upon something as lovely as this during treatment. Congrats at your upcoming exhibit. Can't wait to see more paintings.


Awwwww thanks for writing to me. You know I love your messages!
