I wanted to take a minute to share with you a painting I created this season. This is a large (one of the biggest I've ever done) 18x24 wood panel. It is entitled "Eula's Treasure".
This was created to honor my grandmother. We lost her a few years ago, but her memory is very strong in our family of women. She loved to garden, and the flowers she cultivated were a joy to see every spring. Among her many favorites were irises. If you look close you can see I added a few irises among the bounty of magnolias (I think that is what they are.....I did not get the gardener gene). Across her wings are the words " In the spring when the irises bloom I feel the warmth of her smile upon me" This is a line from a poem my sister wrote about her. I did a few new techniques on this one, including spray paint over some snips of my dried out shrubs and a tissue paper dress. This was gift to my mom for Christmas.
My card club will get to see a mini crop photo shop version of this painting. It will be January's club only card. I will post it here on New Years Day.
Prints will be available after the new year.
