    Spring Bloom was created from many layers of mixed media and acrylic paint, which resulted in a spring garden.  When I finish a mixed media abstract painting, I look for florals, butterflies, images of garden plants then I create a story with negative painting.  When finished I love looking into the depths of the images to see found papers, line, bold colors, and other techniques to create the many layers beneath the garden.  I hope Spring Bloom warms you this chilly December month!

    This painting brings to mind how fragile our environment is. On a recent hike in Lake Tahoe forest, saw how bark beetles have such a great effect on the forest.

    Nice color, composition and mood, with wonderful brushstrokes! Love it!

    Very believable use of color. Painterly brushstrokes and the glow of the sun through the tree keeps the viewer in the painting.

    This painting just draws the viewer in. Really like the reflections in the puddles and the depth of field.

    So good!
