Tulip Festival

Tulip Festival 9x12 oil on wood panel

I was so happy to learn of a new tulip garden in the area. Poston's Nursery in Waxahachie has rows and rows of bright blooming tulips.  It was fun to spend the day here painting and watching everyone enjoy this beauty tulip farm.

Spring Tulips

Spring Tulips 12x12 oil on wood 

I created this in the studio from a set up. The light source was streaming in the window. It is always inspiring to paint from life.  I love the transparent look the flowers gave in the afternoon light. This was created with a palette knife and lots of colorful paint.

Azalea's Design

Azalea's Design12x9 oil on canvas

This was inspired from a photo I took at the Ft. Worth Japanese Gardens. We were there for a wedding and had the opportunity to wander through the garden. The sun was setting casting a glow to the blooming bushes. It was a fun challenge to make sense of the flower bush.

Pink Blossoms

Pink Blossoms 18x14 oil on canvas
This saucer magnolia blooms are one of the first of the trees to show their color.  When I was close to the park I drove by often to check the blooming status on these trees. I would go back with my painting gear and paint them during my lunch hour.  I was happy to paint this one  in the studio and loved the opportunity to take my time and build this up with layers and texture.

We had a wedding to attend in the Japanese Gardens in Ft. Worth. We arrived just was the sun was setting and casting a golden light on everything. This was in early March, so a lot of the spring bushes were in bloom. It was a magical walk through the gardens to join the wedding party.

Asters in the Meadow

Asters in the Meadow 16x20 oil on canvas

This painting all started at the Master's Garden in Granbury. I painted while the asters were in bloom and returned as often as I could to paint them.   I created this from a field study for a painting demo I did for the Weatherford Art Association. This was my practice piece.  I'll finish the demo soon and post it.

It's the time of the year when all the stores have poinsettia for sale. When I saw this shade of the pink ,I grabbed it.  I waited for the sun to come out and the weather to allow me to paint outside and did this.  Painting from life is the way to go.
