I have several of these metal containers begging to be filled with spring flowers. Forsythia now, lilacs next... I enjoy painting flower subjects on black sanded pastel paper. I have done several paintings in this style such as the Little Red Vase and other paintings for this year's Valentine Day's series. I like the the texture and the hint of black peeking through.

Spring came in a couple of weeks early this year in New England. Forsythia is usually the first burst of color announcing spring. I saw this cluster while taking a walk close to my house and needed to capture this lovely spring day.
