More flowers...

I'm designing my garden so there are plenty of beautiful things to paint, and eat! The birds and bees seem very happy these days, swarms of honey bees all over the yard and chickadees, junkos, towhees, and finches everywhere. The only thing missing this year is the little house wren. Hopefully they'll be back next year.

More flowers

Everyday there are new flowers in the garden to paint.
I am fascinated with natures ability to grow extraordinary flowers, edibles, trees... all things growing. It's an endless source of inspiration.

daphne and grape hyacinth

We took a little canoe trip on Lake Washington today. There were blue heron, raccoons, ducks and geese. It's amazing to glide along on the water and see the activity. Next time I'm bringing my watercolor paint and paper!

Wow, I've been trying to upload this picture for days, finally it works!

Lots of hours painting in the studio these days. The weather and growing things are inspirational!
