From the garden

My inspiration comes from nature and the Creator’s work.  We are fashioned in His image and that is the reason we create.  Here is some of the inspiration that is blooming in my garden today.

Peonies I planted last year are doing very nicely.

These beautiful cascading Million Bells are lending lovely color to the deck pots.

And tiger lilies and clematis are blooming their hearts out.

Aren’t they beautiful?  Aren’t you thankful for eyes to see and appreciate God’s handiwork?  I am!

Time for Art

I’ve been in my studio lately.  I’ve finished up a few postcards and some leaf works that were taking up room on my design wall.  Note to self:  Photograph before inserting glass.  Then finish framing!

The artwork is 4″x 6″ and framed to 8″x 10″.

Ti Plant has been submitted to a local show at the Billings Farm Museum.  The show opens July 31 and runs through September.  If you are near Woodstock, VT, it is definitely worth a trip.

Ti Plant measures 17″x 20″.  The label features my original sketch of a ti plant growing in Hawaii.

It’s time…

to banish snow from the top of my blog!  So to make that happen, here are some not-so-subtle signs of spring.  Of course, there is a lot of foliage and blooming things at this point, but we’ll save that for another day.
