Crabapple in Opera Rose

I just love Winsor and Newton’s Opera Rose!  Such a brilliant pink – a perfect color to paint my flowering crabapple in watercolor that I drew previously here.

I tried to paint it looser and added a few splatters at the end.

Now, our second crabapple tree in our yard is blooming… with all the rain we had this Spring, it is “buzzing” with new growth!  I have never seen this tree so full of blossoms.

I have a new subject to paint.  YAY!

Cheers!  🙂

Nothing Crabby!

There is nothing crabby about this Crabapple tree!  It blooms the most gorgeous colors every Spring!

I decided to try painting some of the blossoms in watercolor… yet was only able to get a sketch done today.

I’m going to try painting this one looser… hope you check back in next week to see how I do!

Happy Mother’s Day to ALL mothers – furry or human!

Cheers! 🙂

Pink Phlox

My hubby gave me an Easter bouquet with pink Phlox which got me thinking about flocks of birds…

Imaginary birds that is!

I love the “phlox” in this photo too:

Who Makes You Bloom?

As many of you may know by now, I LOVE flowers!!  When I started this collage, I had an idea but didn’t know how I was going to create it…

And so I went with the flow of things.  I kind of like the combo of paper collage and watercolor.

Who makes YOU  bloom in your life and art?!  I hope you will share it with me!

Cheers!  🙂

A Bouquet Of Inspiration

Perhaps you remember this doodle I recently started in my art journal, you can find it here.

I am please to say that it is finished!

It is in my 5.5 x 7.5 inch art journal.  I used Micron pens on 140 lb hot press watercolor paper.

My husband gave me this beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers this week…

May your day bloom with happiness!

Cheers!! 🙂
