inspiration


This is a painting I recently completed inspired by the work of American Impressionist Childe Hassam. What a joy to be working on a large canvas, 24"x36", for a change!
Today my friend Rhonda introduced me to an amazing place in Woodinville Wa, Bassetti's Gardens. What a beautiful collection of gardens and some very lovely plants for sale.

This is lovely, Michelle! I saw a number of Hassam's paintings at the Smithsonian American Art Museum yesterday. My favorite painter there 'though, was Abbot Handerson Thayer. Gorgeous!

You'll have to tell me more about the gardens in Woodinville.

Hi Michelle,
I haven't checked up on you in a while-- you've been busy! I love the flowers and the new black background style of your blog.
