Blue Bloomers Hydrangeas is a new painting based on the blossoms of the Dallas Arboretum. This little painting is drying near the footheater in my studio, as the chilly wind whips around my garden in the back yard. My husband took a photo of our frozen bird bath and I liked how he captured the color and design. He has an eye for photography and can get the greatest photos with his IPhone, while my photos are always blurry, off center, and always listing just a bit to the right.

If you'd like to see the place that inspires more of my flowers than any other (okay, except for maybe the flowers at Central Market *sound of harps*) come paint with me on January 28 during my workshop at the Dallas Arboretum. The classroom is nice and big and indoors so we won't be a bit chilly, and it's always a great day to paint in the most beautiful garden in North Texas, especially if Megan brings us chocolate like she did last time!

From my garden this morning, a frozen moment

The Blue Bloomer Hydranges are beautiful!
And so is the frozen bird bath!

Il est bien dommage que vous soyez un peu trop loin, autrement j'aurais été ravie de participer à vos cours... nous n'avons jamais fini d'apprendre et en ce qui me concerne je n'ai jamais pris de cours, je suis une autodidacte qui avance avec mes erreurs...
Ces hortensias ont une couleur, que dis-je, des nuances de couleurs sublimes!
Merci de nous faire partager aussi le talent de votre époux.
Gros bisous à vous ma chère Nancy.

Thank you little Tweedley! I hope you have your warm sweater today....

Merci Martine, je pense qu'il serait amusant de peindre ensemble un jour, si je suis toujours visiter votre beau pays! étreintes chaleureuses de Dallas au Texas!

Bohemian I just love that bird bath - my aunt bought it for me as a gift. :)
