Spring Hope Pink Poppies and Some Painterly Ladies at Artscape

You never know who you are going to bump into at the Dallas Arboretum!
These are my painty pals, Angela Elledge and Ann Rogers who joined me on March 18 for my Artscape show at the Arboretum. We are members of the Some Texas Artists Like to Paint blog, and occasionally we go out to lunch and solve the art problems of the world together. I wish I looked as elegant as Angela does in her red hat! Our theme for the Texas blog this month is tools and I already know what I am going to paint!!!

I love the Dallas Aboretum as a venue for an art show. Look at the beautiful space! This is my new light dome tent. It worked really well, even without snowfall to put it to the test this year.

I felt a bit like a peeping tom, getting a look at the inside of this beautiful tulip. This bed of lovelies was right next to our art tents. The morning dew was beautiful, like diamonds.

Of course I went running over to get pictures of the purple pansies as soon as I saw them by the DeGolyer House. I do love pansies!

These flowers were in a container, and came in all colors. Do you know what they are called? I don't, but I wish I did. Very paintable!
