Spring Showers

Another day, another painting!  A snowstorm kept me from leaving the house today - soooo frustrating when I am chomping at the bit to start a project!!  Oh well, I paced the house for an hour and then sat down at my easel to play with my paints.  This is what I came up with.


I messed around and started trying to paint snowdrops but failed miserably.  I turned them into tulips instead and I'm quite pleased with the result.




Spring Showers, Acrylic on 8x12 Acrylic Paper

And after a little added shading and definition, I framed the painting.  I am still amazed by the transformation created by a simple frame.


Have a happy and creative week!

good reminder

  3. Well at least you turned a negative into a positive Anne. Your painting is lovely and doesn't the black frame highlight the flowers.

  10. I'm not a painter of anything so I am totally in awe of people who have the talent. You are seriously good. You should open an Etsy shop and sell this stuff!

  17. I am so envious..of your painting and your snow! You are really good at this girl! I get all intimidated thinking about shading and shadows and light when it comes to painting. Looks like you've got it down!

  29. The flowers are amazing. The saying is so appropriate by anais nin. Blessings, Janet PPF

  30. Oh wow I'm chomping at the bit too! Does that make me sound like a horse! Is that even what that saying is referring to? I've never been good at idioms. My husband, on the other hand, uses them as his first language!

    Oh wow...am I on your blog? Sorry! Some things never change, right?

    Yeah. I'd buy that painting and hang it on my gallery wall...you know when I get one!!! I have the wall, of course, but the gallery hasn't happened yet! But I do imagine such things...daily!

    LOVE how painting grows into some other far out creation!

    Hi Friend!

    ps - Anais Nin is one of my personal favs!

  31. Anne,

    You are such an amazing talent! Gorgeous! Can I leave a blanket statement on this post to cover the next few with paintings? I just love them all! Seriously. You are so talented. How did I not know of your amazing artistic skills? Power tools ... and acrylics! Your a force to be reckoned with!

    :) Linda
