Love these Heirloom garden roses I found at the market! The way the petals curl inward toward the center is so charming. I put them in this footed glass bowl which perfectly shows them off. I am keeping ice cubes in their water, so they won't open up too fast (warm water makes them open up sooner) and hopefully I will be able paint them for several more days.
I love to share my art and inspiration. Click HERE to sign up for my email newsletter and receive a free gift of postcards.
year the poppies self-seed all over my garden, particularly in the
lawn. My husband, bless him, mows around these patches giving me a
lovely display with high impact colour! These are growing around an old
hibiscus syringa which is just starting to emerge after its' winter
I created this during the Paint the Glen paint out this past weekend. I was pleased to win a 2nd place ribbon. I was told this was one of the original homes build in this town. It is available for purchase.
Oh how I love this little section of our garden! It's like a little room
surrounded by a picket fence and a lush growth of flowering plants from
Spring through Autumn, right by our front door. In the morning the sun
warms the back of this curvy bench, casting shadows on the slate stones
below. They are brightened by the warm light.
As I've painted this space over the last five years, it's been so fun
seeing this area grow and mature. The peonies in the upper left corner
have yet to bloom, but this year there are so many buds on them. This
particular one is white and fragrant!!!! ooh, I can hardly wait for this
one to bloom. The canes of the rose behind this bench now arch across
several spans of fencing. When I first bought this plant via mail order
five years ago, it was so puny and tiny, I could hardly imagine that it
would ever spread this far! The 'creeping phlox' at this edge of the
slate circle mounded up with gorgeous wild color again this year.....so
exciting to see after the bareness of winter! Ahh- life is sweet once
winter is far behind!
