I’ve been working on entering a few competitions in my area. Two new paintings are of flowers! They are some of my favorite examples of nature.This was a weird reoccurring vision I was having when I was drifting off to sleep one afternoon. I saw this with line on a black background drawing curly shapes. It started with just a small piece. That one was replaced withe the same beginning and then more curling organic shapes.
Last spring I spent a fabulous girls’ day with two of my friends in Mount Vernon, Wa. at the Tulip festival. We drove around and stopped at the fields filled with endless rows of tulips. I took hundreds of photos. One of them inspired “Tulip Splendor.

I once lived on 7 acres of beautiful land. There was no landscaping when we moved in.One year my husband gave me a green house, so I decided to start some perennials from seed. We had horses so we had very fertile land.The poppy seed package I got was full of multiple colors. My favorite was this delicate pink one.This is the first time I painted water drops. The original still hangs in my home. I had a blast painting the organic curves in this. This is called Tearful Poppy

The hibiscus is so cool. I don’t see many of them in the Pacific Northwest, but enjoy all the different colors I’ve seen in warmer climates. I had to paint it because of the pink and blue. The stamen was painted in detail. This tiny print is filled with color.
This painting was inspired by one of my favorite quotes from Maya Angelou,” If you keep trying to be normal you’ll never know how beautiful you can be.”The image is from one of my hanging baskets filled with petunias and lobelea. I hope this brings you as much inspiration as it does me.
