Spring is here and what better symbol than the Periwinkle, at least in the Virginia area. This is low to the ground and so tiny it’s hard to spot it. I did only because my little kitty, Rasmus, snuck out into my neighbors front yard and as I picked him up I saw this little beautiful and perfect purple flower with 5 petals.  I didn’t know it was a periwinkle until I had to name it!

Periwink-Wink measures 10×10 inches and is painted on a 1.5 inches deep gallery wrapped canvas (25 x 25 x 4cm), and it features five lovely petals of this bluish purple spring flower against a reddish purple background. The background has some strokes of unbleached white which has beige tones in it. It creates an interesting and soothing feel to it I think, and it’s lighter on the top compared to the bottom of the painting. It continues to all sides and the painting is ready to hang as is.
