Yes! Great idea to use painting with light to capture this lovely little colony. Love how the light focuses my eyes on the flowers. My Winter Aconite are up also! I'm so happy!!!

Beautifully lit and composed. Feels like morning light breaking through trees to the forest floor in the early morning. Very nice.

Gorgeous lighting you did here! They also appear to be congregating into a group for the big moment of bloom, with their green collars on, a chorus in the making.
