Spring, Flowers and Texture in Bloom

While today is the first "official" day of Spring, some good weather here in the past couple weeks has been pulling me out of the studio and into the gardens.  It did feel wonderful to get back outside and finish prepping the beds.

"Busting into Bloom"
by Judith F Lochbrunner
acrylic/mixed media on canvas

This painting features floral shapes created in light molding paste.  The textures carve the parts of the flower-shapes by creating breaks in the color.   Black acrylic paint squeezed from a narrow-tipped bottle forms dark, thick lines.  And water-soluble pastels add bright color.  

It won't be long until the gardens are full of colorful blooms like those that inspired my painting. However there is still something very special about the first blooms of the season.  This is the first daffodil that bloomed in the garden just yesterday.

Happy Spring!
