Oldies Made New!

Lately, I've been looking over some paintings I did a few years ago.  Something was missing in them.....and I've been feeling the call to add some more paint.  So, I spent a good part of the day happily painting, adding more colour and contrast to them.  When I originally created these pieces, I wanted to emphasize their quiet quality and beauty of the flowers I used in each, and I felt I had achieved that.  Now, looking at them, what I wanted was to give them a bit more life and vibrancy while still keeping that soft, quiet overall feel. Here's what they day went like!
