Living Designs

One of the joys of gardening ( besides getting to play in the dirt!) is walking around the yard and finding flowers that have burst into bloom. Love the textures, the bright colors and how the sunlight emphasizes their beauty. It is so serene to be outside, with the wind blowing in your hair and listening only to the songs of the birds. I happily lose track of all time while I work until.....the first big spider gets too close !..then I take the hint and leave it be ...until the next time.

Iris Dreams

Finally ....came to the realization that I was using the wrong medium for what I was trying to create. After many very Bad acrylic paintings, I pulled out the oils. These colors were chosen mainly because they were the first six tubes that I could get open! With a sigh of relief and true joy I painted this in one evening. Feeling like I just woke up from a long horribly-colored dream.
