A couple weeks ago the small plum tree we planted last year burst into bloom. It was so exhilarating and uplifting to see these beautiful blooms after a long, dreary winter, I just had to paint them. Hoping I did them justice….

Mother Nature •finally• cooperated by introducing snatches of Spring into this 2013 seemingly never-ending Winter scenario. So I moved a mini studio to a small corner on the porch. I can paint again!! Thank you Vicki Parent for the beautiful lilies next door under the weeping cherry tree that inspired this acrylic painting.

Trying out some new paints – water-based enamels. Love their brilliance because, as you know, I’m all about color 🙂 Used oil-based enamels on the exterior mural I created for a local resident and I liked their fluidity and full-bodied color. So tried out the water-based version to see if I liked them. I do! My daughter and I have many orchids between us and this is just one of our favorites.

This orchid has only bloomed twice since I bought it. Orchids are really sensitive plants. I’m curious why this plant is not blooming as frequently as the multitude of others I have throughout my home.

This second orchid was also blooming in my home. The red blooms were oh, so brilliant. I gifted the orchid plant to a dear friend of mine. The original of this painting sold at Annmarie Garden’s Artsfest 2008 so I guess someone else liked the flower as well 🙂

Leaves

Oil on Canvas
Original: $425
Reproductions Available

This painting of fall leaves was a composition from the leaves in my yard in Bethesda, Maryland. We used to have bags and bags of leaves – too many to use as mulch and too many to scoop over to the curb for curb-side pick up by the county. Many a leaf was raked but a few found another life in my painting.
