Let Us Rejoice

Dawn Paint Diptych
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
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.
“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 Indian paintbrush was beautiful under a blushing sky this morning.
It is a beautiful time to be in north Texas. The Indian paint brush is in full bloom!
The Flowering Earth
“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
Flowers Bloom After Rain Falls
Sometimes not cleaning up your toys is a good thing! I failed to scrape my palette yesterday, so I decided to see if I could use that paint to do another study. I love them together and separate.
