    Mixed Hyacinths

    This one is for MaryAnn. And a big thanks for the photo, though I didn't do it justice.
    I love to paint old tins, so I used metal surface and oils for this one.

    hyacinth
    1 a bulbous plant of the lily family, with straplike leaves and a compact spike of bell-shaped fragrant flowers. Native to western Asia, hyacinths are cultivated outdoors and as houseplants.
    • Genus Hyacinthus, family Liliaceae: several species, in particular H. orientalis, from which the common large-flowered cultivars are derived.
    • a light purplish-blue color typical of some hyacinth flowers.
    2 another term for jacinth .

    ORIGIN mid 16th cent.(denoting a gem): from French hyacinthe, via Latin from Greek huakinthos, denoting any of various plants identified with the flower in the myth of Hyacinthus , and a gem (perhaps the sapphire). The current sense dates from the late 16th cent.

    Thank you Dany for your kind and generous comment. I really appreciate it.

    Cesare, Thank you and also for giving me a giggle over the last part of your comment. Attacks of gloopism-too funny! I am trying to break away from this powerful addiction.

    Katie, Thanks so much. You are the flower master in my opinion so I am so very thankful for your comment.

    One of my favorites of yours -- I like the double complementary color usage and the soft brushwork. Al

    Al, thank you from the bottom on my heart for such a generous comment.

    AT, You've made my day. I am trying to work more with oils, their settings, and size, and I love the blending and thickness most of all. I am absolutely thrilled that you liked this one. Many many thanks dear lady!

    Alexandra,
    What could be more delightful to the senses than a gift of perpetually
    blooming Hyacinths. An impressive display of color, form and beauty
    and I could swear that the scent of these artfully created blooms are
    now filling my room with their captivating perfumed fragrance. So
    beautiful they are, the soft essence of spring on canvas they are.

    A gracious thank you for thinking of me in such a charming way.
    Mairzie Dotes
