100 Paintings in 100 Days Challenge
'Inspirations from a Back Yard'

'Baby Z"
Oil 5 x 7
Day 25

Day 25

I love to watch things grow; it is so life-affirming.
You take a simple seed, put it in some dirt, give
it a little water and then watch for that
bit of green to peek above the earth's surface.

The baby zucchinis started to pop out about
two weeks ago in my garden. I could't resist painting this one
with the blossom still attached. Had to do it quickly - it
is amazing at how fast they grow - was away for four days
for the Gettysburg Festival Artist Colony, and some
of my 'babies' had grown to the size of baseball bats!

If you would like to see to see more of my work,
please visit my website or my blog. If you are
interested in purchasing any of my paintings you see

Already beautiful, I can only imagine the joy of watching this lovely little bud open to the sun. Beautiful work, Claire.

I love watching things grow, as well. I have been painting mostly from home this past month and really enjoying my gardens.

Thank you Manda, Sherry and Karen. This was a fun painting to do - I really liked the way the light hit the zucchini and its blossom.
