May Flowers: Celebrate the Wild and the Formal

Orange Thicket
by Judith Flynn Lochbrunner
acrylic, mixed media
12 x 9 inches

May flowers are not just about what is blooming in the formal beds around homes, business or other buildings.  Spring is the season of wildflowers that bloom in the fields, forests and even vacant lots.  Just this morning I saw stands of crested blue iris as well as large patches of May apple in bloom while walking the dog up the road which is lined with trees and thick undergrowth.  

It is these wild and "volunteer" bloomers that are the inspiration for this recent work.  They each have their own personality and attitude.

The painting at the top of the blog is a new delivery to Goose Creek Studio in Bedford and can be found on the wall of work by the Double Line Painters of the Blue Ridge.  This week is 2nd Friday so plan to enjoy the warm May evening during this monthly art (and food) walk in Centertown Bedford.  

Art and a warm Spring evening make an unbeatable combination.
