FLOWERS!!

“April showers bring May flowers” and they are starting to bloom!  Yes!  I am so hungry for their color and sweet fragrance.  It has been a long wet winter here in the Northwest and while my back yard is still like a sodden sponge of water I have brought flowers to the walls that surround me! Looking into the windows of my studio gallery you will see a perfect Master Copy of Georgia O’Keefe’s “White Flower on Red Earth”, a piece that “desert transplant” artist Mercedes painted this past January while the snow fell outside. The center of attention is the 56″ x 44″ Red Rose by Mercedes truly stunning in it’s size…
