Poppy Bliss and a Dallas Arboretum Stroll

Poppy Bliss is drying on the easel in Flower Mound Studio, as my grocery store sunflowers fade in a jar near my brushes and the evening draws to a close. Tomorrow I am going to a real flower store, as a treat, just to see what wonderful new blossoms I can hire to model for me. Scrolling through my hundreds of flowers from the Dallas Arboretum Artscape show is fun, but it's nothing like having the blossom here in person. Here are a few more photos for you from my March show at the Arboretum. I hope you can join me there next year.

It has taken a week to get all the thank yous into the mail, and to get the bookkeeping finished, the price I paid from a very successful art show, thanks to you! Everyone who receives a card invitation in the mail also receives a discount coupon so send me your address so I can send you a card next year! I would love to see you at Artscape 2012!

The Texas azaleas were in their element near White Rock Lake.

The hubby got this shot, these tulips were just awakening for
a morning when more than 5,000 people would gaze at them.

I love the flowers, but I also love the shadow
patterns on the meandering walkways, don't you?

And the show stealers, of course, the tulips!

A gorgeous painting. Love the red and bits of purple I see in the center. Very painterly.
