Embracing Color and Wild Brushstrokes
Hello! It is the first day of Spring!
The rain has stopped for a little while, the sun has come out, and the tulips are starting to bloom.
I am often inspired by the colors of our garden, and I tend to be out there taking photos of our flowers as soon as they bloom! We have had a long and rainy winter, so watching these beauties come to life, just makes me smile!
Of course, in the art studio, colors have been “blooming” all through winter. I made a series of work all about embracing color and wild brushstrokes, which really is a sort of tagline for my art in general, especially these last two years. Painting bold colors and laying down layers of texture and “dancing” brushstrokes is such a joy to me.
I have ten new pieces to share with you. Five of these have sold already, and the other five are in my online shop.

In the meantime, I am playing with some new colors. These are experiments and explorations on smaller wood substrates, that might influence my newer work.
Until next time, I hope your spring is full of color and beauty!
