More gladiolus

Adding more flowers and keeping the brush strokes simple was a challenge. To bring the viewer into the focal point more detail was used in that area.

This time of the year gladiolus can be purchased 5 stems for $2.50 now that is a bargain. If you grow them in Michigan they must be dug up each fall or the bulbs rot like mine did.  It is important to help the economy so mine are purchased from a Michigan farm delivered right to my grocery store.

It bloomed

We nurture three orchid plants and it is so amazing when they bloom and their blooms last for weeks. I'm celebrating this is my 100th posted painting.

I recently attended a paint out in Glen Arbor Michigan and what a wonderful experience that was, they do a fine job of organizing and promoting this event, 63 artist participated. This town is near our Sleeping Bear Dunes National Shoreline a spectacular area on Michigan's Upper West Coast on Lake Michigan.
