Dancing fuschias


AQUARELLA  -  10 1/2    X  14  INCHES
ON STRATHMORE PAPER
DANCING FUSCHIAS


 
Les pépinières du coin regorgent de plantes et de fleurs.  Cette semaine, j'en ai ramené tout plein à la maison.  Il ne reste plus qu'à les planter  et çà tombe bien ,  j'adore jouer dans la terre!  Voici des fuschias , des fleurs que j'aime beaucoup,  car elles attirent les oiseaux-mouches. Elles dansent au rythme de l'été..

Nurserys are full of plants and flowers and this week I brought home a lot of them.  Now, all I have to do is to plant them.  It so happens I love digging and playing with soil.  These are fuschias, flowers I specially like because they attract hummingbirds. They're doing a little dance, summer's here.

Hi Lorraine! That's exactly what it is. :) A tutu. I love tutus. Wish I was a ballet dancer sometimes, just to wear those rustling and wispy things. xx

Hi Sherry! I'm very happy this one pleases you particularly. Yesterday, I spent some time examining a fuschia. Such delicacy, a little work of art all by itself. Have a great weekend Sherry, Hugs

Hi Helen, very very nice.
I want to let you know your blog is redirecting commenters to advertising and other stuff. I don't know if you've authorized that or if you've been hacked. It's happend a few times when I try to comment and sometimes I cannot get rid of it so I can leave a comment. This time I was lucky I guess.

Hi Carol! So sorry abpout about the trouble! It does happen to me too when I visit certain blogs but I hadn't realize it could be the same on my blog. I'll look into it. Have a great weekend! Hugs

What a beautiful painting of these intricate flowers. How lovely that you get humming birds

Helen H Trachy a dit…

Hi Polly! When I first bought that flower a few years ago, I noticed these little birds for the first time of my life. Since then, I keep some every summer. Have a great weekend! Hugs

This is SO beautifully painted, Helen!!! Every time I see a Fuchsia plant, I think of my Mom and how much she loved them because they looked like ballerinas.. Fantastic colors!!

Bonjour ma chère Helen,

J'avais manqué ta série de portraits !! aussi délicieux que tes fuchsias...
La beauté des ses clochettes retombantes apporte une grâce extraordinaire. Ses fleurs sont généreuses de par ses couleurs et ses formes. J'aime ce joli ballet... qui t'a entraînée à créer cette très jolie aquarelle.

Je te fais de gros bisous ♡

Helen H Trachy a dit…

Bonsoir Martine, merci de ta charmante visite!

Katherine Thomas a dit…

Ooh, the painting is gorgeous! I really love those flowers as a subject, too, now that I've seen how you painted them, with such vibrancy. I like the way you composed this piece, with the fuchsia not planted, but flowing freely with expression of their own. It's wonderful!

Helen H Trachy a dit…

I appreciate your comment Kayherine, thanks! Have a beautiful day! :)

Helen H Trachy a dit…

Comme tu vois Cath, c'est le temps des fleurs. Très difficile de ne pas se laisser tenter par toute les variétés. Et toi, tu as le temps de jardiner un peu? xx

Sharon Wright a dit…

Glorious Watercolour! I am so envious of your skill.

Helen H Trachy a dit…

Hi Sharon! Thanks for dropping by. Have a great weekend!

Margarita a dit…

Pourquoi je n'avais pas vu cette beauté c'est un mystère que seulement bloguer peut savoir... Ces fuchsias-ci sont magnifiques, ma chère! Tu es dans une bonne passe!
