Vernal pools in the Spring Woods

Deep in the spring woods where the ferns are growing and the marsh marigolds have already bloomed, I spent the morning painting.There was a Jack in the Pulpit and lots of other wonderful wild flowers to be seen..I kept thinking of Charles Burchfield and what a great job he always did when in the woods.....the first time I saw his work I was transfixed by the feeling he got when painting the deep woods....

Spring Flowers and Old Blue Chair

I am sorry for the week of no posted work but the computer crashed and I had no access to photos of recent paintings ! So here goes after a long dry spell....A bouquet of early flowers brought in by a student set on a blue coral fabric from St Croix.... I love this old chair, the shape is pure poetry....and I was so grateful to spend time with this still life.....watercolor 22x30"
