Lily Love Stargazers and a Stroll Through the Dallas Arboretum

Lily Love Stargazers is a new painting in the studio. I spent a bit of time at the Dallas Arboretum a few days ago, and even though the wind was chilly coming off of White Rock Lake, the flowers were in bloom! Here are a few photos below. You may want to put on a hat and a nice warm scarf for this stroll. The really good photographers were out in force with their zoom lenses and fancy umbrellas, before the park filled up, and while the light was perfect. I'm just an amateur, but I've found that by shooting about 600 photos, I can usually take home three or four good ones.

I arrived early, so the light was coming from
the east, throwing nice shadows on the paths.

There were early blooming tulips and lots
of pansies in full bloom, cold weather blossoms.

The statues around the gardens
are beautiful, and this one is
near the lake.

Ragdoll tulips! I do love the orange...
