Dawn Paint Diptych

8”x4” 8”x8” oil on panel

I decided to make this painting from last week into a diptych – it is fun challenge to piggy back on a painting. I like them to work together and alone. The process reminds me of having really good leftovers in the fridge, the kind of ingredients that easily get reworked into another delightful meal.

Bee Tree and Bluebonnets

8” square oil on canvas panel

My mom sent me so many beautiful wildflower pictures yesterday. She lives four hours south of me, so her bluebonnets are just past their prime, while ours are are not quite there yet. I loved this pic of bluebonnets and a bee tree. The long grass reminds me of a school kid needing a haircut.

Untamed Beauty

10”x8” oil on canvas

“Almost every person, from childhood, has been touched by the untamed beauty of wildflowers.” – Lady Bird Johnson

I took the wild beauty into the hospital today:).

The Flowering Earth

8”x10” oil on panel

“Some may wonder why I chose wildflowers when there are hunger and unemployment and the big bomb in the world. Well, I, for one, think we will survive, and I hope that along the way we can keep alive our experience with the flowering earth. For the bounty of nature is also one of the deep needs of man.” -Lady Bird Johnson
