It seems to always snow on my birthday. This year it was a little late but I wasn’t surprised to wake up to the snow outside my window. After my kids were off to school after a 2 hour delay and my husband had left for his classes, I decided to set up my easel and do a little plein air through my window. I did something with this painting that I’ve never done before. I loved it a lot. The impressionist never use black or browns to create the different values in their paintings. They just use a different color of a darker value. So that is what I’ve done here.

I also created a lot of drama by using very cool colors contrasted with very warm ones. This painting really turned out lovely. I excited to try this same technique again.

In the heat of summer These shining beauties rein supreme. They seem to dance as they show off their glowing colors. For this painting I used a technique called Al La Prima. You lay in thick strokes of paint as if they were the final strokes of the painting. I can’t wait till the summer comes again and the flowers return. The flowers offer so much in color and composition and besides all the colors make me happy.
