Artful Living

flowering dogwood

Seriously, every day I stop, stare and have heart palpitations at the beauty of nature and of the rite of Spring.
 I decided to bring a flowering dogwood cutting inside and capture it’s beauty on paper.

Here she is, currently being framed in a simple white frame, perfect in a traditional or modern setting.

Hand-Painted on Arches 140 lb. watercolor paper.

By the way, I have added google adsense to my blog in an effort to raise art supply funds and or maximize revenue.  Now in my 5th year of blogging, I cannot tell a lie, it is work but I love it.
Will you help an artist out? Do me a favor and click on the ads, you may see something you like, want or need.
