I will be showing more photos from this incredible show but decided today to focus on some of the sweetest and most delicate flowers I got to see there......Violas.
The garden had planted these beautiful blooms all throughout the exhibit and outside in the courtyard as well.
I was so inspired when I saw them, I decided I needed to paint them on canvas. I have the perfect little 6" x 8" gallery canvas sitting here in my house, waiting to be adorned with these delicate Violas.
I also fell so in love with them that I had to bring a couple of plants home for my sunny kitchen windowsill, that way I get to look at them each and every day.
I hope you've enjoyed looking at these lovely blossoms as much as I have and I hope they have inspired you in some way.
I'm still working away on my first pattern packet project and have found that creating the art was the easy part for me. The complicated aspect is going through my chicken scratched notes and creating something budding artists will be able to use and understand. This project was all inspired by a very special blog reader of mine from PA......but more on that when it is ready. I'm hoping to be done with it soon.
