Naturalized Gardens and Abstracted Flowers

Soft Glow
by Judith F Lochbrunner
acrylic on canvas
24 X 20 inches

This abstracted floral features layers of transparent color to create the soft glow.  And it is hard not to keep my mind on anything but flowers and gardening these past couple weeks.

Spring has arrived with its plants racing at full speed to push out of the ground, bud and bloom.  

(Tulips in full bloom at Colonial Williamsburg last weekend.)

Despite the poor weather forecast we ventured out last Thursday to capture the dogwoods and redbuds at their peak on top of Mill Mountain in Roanoke.  Setting up under a covered picnic area, I worked on a mixed media sketch of the trees in the photo.

(Dogwoods in front with Redbuds in the back.)

Yes it was wet and chilly.  I had my raincoat, rain hat and even gloves on to keep warm and dry.   But it was well worth the time as to view this "naturalized" garden and create an excellent study for a future painting or perhaps complete for display.

I have a delivery scheduled for mid week to 2nd Helpings Gallery.  A few of the paintings have been featured in recent blog posts.  However, I will post to the StoneCoalStudio Facebook page a photo of all the new works.  Please go to my page to view or even "like" to see all the new paintings on display.

Enjoy the happy spring colors!
