Cherry Blossoms Are Here
April is the month of cherry blossoms, daffodils and tulips. All of these inspire Northwest painters and I am no exception.
This year the University of Washington has asked people who would normally visit to stay away because of the pandemic. Sad, but there are so many beautiful blooming trees throughout our area that just a walk through the neighborhood can help satisfy our spring fix for spring blossoms.
Here is a painting that was done of the UW's Quad area that is home to some wondrous cherry trees. Love the way the branches beckon visitors.
Prints of this painting in several different sizes are available upon request. Just contact me for more information.
Blossoms on the Quad
Wire wrapping is a favorite way to enjoy an afternoon. There is something about wrapping the wire around a beautiful stone that is peace yet inspiring. The stone often dictates how the wire will behave. Above are three pendants that I recently created in preparation for the summer fairs that we hope will be happening this year. They and others like them will be available to purchase online soon. More details will be available next month.
Another developing idea in the studio is how to spruce up the cuff bracelet. Above are a few ideas that I have been working on lately. These are hammered, embossed, riveted, and painted. They add another dimension to wrist bling.
