Spider Mum

private collection

I'm enjoying the bright colors and exquisite details of flowers as the rainy weather continues...

After trying the entire inflorescence, I settled upon this single bloom and bud - much easier!

First Tulip

I tried a little back lighting to see how light looks through the petals.

about the artist

White Salmon, Washington, United States
I have always enjoyed making things - learning to use the tools and properties/qualities of materials. My favorite place to renew is in a Forest, Alpine Meadow, or on a Lake; all are wonderful templates for living simply and elegantly! I started drawing at age 5 and worked in several media, eventually taking a minor in Fine Art along with my Science degrees. Later studies in Fiber, Surface Design, Book Arts and Painting support my work today. I continue to study painting through workshops and perseverance at my easel. I work on location and sometimes in the studio.
