Birthday Flowers

This is a fairly new painting. It has been in one show, in Lubbock. We got our daughter these flowers for her birthday, and took them and put them in her house on her table for a surprise. She has a white tiled table with white chairs, and the back of that one was so pretty, I just had to try to paint it. The back ground is taken from a piece of fabric. I am always looking for pretty fabric since I quilt, but I also buy it for good back ground designs. I think the digital photo picked up on the background a little more than it really is. The flowers were not quite this big but I wanted to exaggerate them!
