Blossom Magic 3 is the third in my Apple Blossom series. The colors in this piece are really true to the blossoms and the background. I enjoy creating abstract sections of a piece that tie everything together. If you look at the detail below, you'll see how I pulled the turquoise at the top, down into the sienna brown. I painted this very loosely, trying not to get too much detail in. My goal was to get more of the 'feeling' of blossoms - light, airy, delicate and still have a good strong composition.

Happy mom's day . . . I have loved clouds all my life - even though they sometimes bring rain and thunderstorms. As children we used to sit in our living room that looked out over the Columbia River and the hills surrounding our beautiful Wenatchee Valley and watch lightning strikes start fires! Then I found Eric Sloan - a master cloud painter. No one comes close - but I sometimes try. Here is a plein air (painted out of doors) piece I did yesterday from my yard. As you know, even on a calm day, clouds change quickly so you have only a few moments to commit to the composition and paint away! The day was very bright so it was difficult to see if I was capturing the colors. I brought the painting into my studio and was pleased that, yes, I captured them pretty darned good! What do you think? See the detail below.

"Blossom Magic 2" is the second in my Apple Blossom series. A person doesn't realize what a variety of shapes blossoms have until she trys to paint them. And the color! The blossoms range from pinkish-white to purpleish-blue, with the buds infused with lush pinks, oranges, and whites.

Since it is Apple Blossom weekend here in the beautiful Wenatchee Valley, what better subject matter than apple blossoms. Our mini-ranch is actually surrounded by apple orchards so I have plenty of resource material. I love the random shapes of the blossoms, no two are alike. The blossoms grow in clusters sometimes, creating a challenge for "negative painting," where you paint the subject by painting what is behind the subject!
Another challenge when painting apple blossoms is the color. As you can see here (be sure to see the detail below) the blossom is more pink before it blooms. When it is fully open, it is more "white" than pink. This is the first in a series that I will work on in the next couple weeks, so if you'd like 3 or 4 for a grouping, now is the time to purchase!
