In March of 2016 Art & Soul Gallery held a “Spirit Of Spring” show of paintings by the galleries artists.
I created my painting, “Springtime Delight” for that show.
Then I never showed it again, even though I was happy with the painting.
Since it is a tulip themed painting I pulled it out to see if I could show as part of my tulip series.
After looking at it with fresh eyes, as it has been put away for some time, I saw some changes that I felt needed to made.
The before of “Springtime Delight” is on left and the finished painting is on the right, very happy with the results!

The sun is out and my tulips have bloomed.
The new Blumex Parrot Tulips turned out to be exactly what I had ordered.
They have been a delight to watch bloom and to photograph for future painting reference! Very Inspiring!
On Monday, I rehung my artwork at Art & Soul Gallery in Ashland, Oregon – here is my new display.

This spring has had some exciting weather!
From beautiful crisp and warm sunny days to stormy rains and snow.
Everyday I take a walk outside in my yard to see the growth of the green things and flowers.
The newly planted tulips are up and beginning to color on their buds.
Watching these tulips grow everyday is an exercise in patience as I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am to see them bloom!
In the meantime I have been distracted from working on the large tulip painting that I have written about.
This is easy for me to do as I generally have many projects that I am involved in at the same time.
In addition to that, I have a number of painting”starts” from demonstrating experimental techniques in my art classes just waiting to be finished.
Here are two of those “starts” that I just finished.
“Blossoms In A Breeze” – Watercolor 10 x 13″
“Relationships”- Watermedia 14 x 21″
Working on my “Tulips” series I did start and ended up finishing this large abstract watercolor titled “Tulip Time”
“Tulip Time” – Watercolor 29 x 21″
Recently, I was interviewed on behalf of Art & Soul Gallery by David Nienow for his Rogue Artisans and Crafters Show that airs on RVTV.
Was a fun experience and nice representation for Art & Soul Gallery!
