flowers in vases

Here's another in my flowers in a vase trio.

over the weekend

I took a color theory workshop this weekend with artist Jeff Swaluk. We had a great group and it was really nice to be in a creative environment after painting solo in my studio for so long. I really miss those art school days, staying up all night with my girlfriends working on our projects. Here are the two pieces I did.

I'm doing a little series of flowers in vases. There's so much inspiration this time of year, how could I not?

Check back often...I will have more work to post soon. My show at Redfish Studio is coming up May 30th!

Also....I've made a book a for my show on Walking Nature's Paths is the title and you can view a preview of it by clicking the little blurb icon. This is my first time ordering from Blurb...keeping my fingers crossed I'll like the look of it. I didn't leave myself enough time to order a preview copy.

update from my studio

I just realized it's been a month since my last post! I apologize for being a lax blogger. We went to NH in April for spring vacation...the weather was glorious. The kids played outside and I got to paint with my art school buddies again. Here are a few little watercolors I did over that week. I have an opening coming up at RedFISH studios this month, so I am going to be busy framing and finishing up pieces in the next 2 weeks. Should be some new work too!
