Spring Garden

Painting flower blossoms of a young magnolia tree in our garden was a delightful task. The dappled light passing through the surrounding woods created a dream like environment that added to the joy of the afternoon. Each bloom displays in a different form while at the same time being similar to each other and present themselves as sky dancers. They seem oblivious to the branches that hold them to the ground revelling in the day.

Painting Spring

During our early and fast spring  capturing the disarray of forest floor has been a yearly challenge. The disarray of broken branches and dried leaves the new growth of ferns unfurling towards the sun provides me with a still life arrangement that is strangely still but moving at the same time.
