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!
