I love colorful, floral vases and pots, and have always wanted to paint them, even the elaborate ones. Friendship Blossoms is based on a photo I took in a local restaurant on an evening my best friend Elizabeth and I had a girl's night out. We had to wait quite a while for a table at this little eatery, which has fountains outside for the kiddos to play in, and live music on weekends. We used our cell phones to take turns snapping silly pictures of one another while we waited in the bar, oblivious to the odd stares we were probably receiving. This little floral bouquet was by the back door and I couldn't resist getting some pictures.

Friendship Blossoms is dedicated to you, my dear bloggy friends. I hope you have a special girlfriend in your life you can confide in and who is always there to tell you that you look great even when you absolutely know without a doubt you are having a bad hair day.

Absolutely beautiful, Nancy. Of course, my eyes went instantly to the pot as well. It is so pretty!! I wish I did have a close friend like you mention. I seem to be turning more and more inward as I get older. It can't be a good thing.

It is amazing, isn't it Nancy, where we can get our inspiration from. : )

I find visiting your blog each day inspires me and makes me want to paint. Hugs from NY.

You have filled your canvas with pattern to create a very Matisse-like image. Thank you for dedicating this painting to your blog friends, even those of us to old to remember "girls nights out"!
