Filoli Garden House Tree with Tulips
Here's a different kind of painting for me. I saw this tree in a beautiful little garden house at Filoli in Woodside, CA. It captured my imagination and I just had to paint it. In front of the other window in this house was a very large birdcage with two doves in it (a subject for a matching painting to come.) Last year I thought I'd enter them both into a juried art show at Filoli. I planned early and started it well ahead of time. However, it turned out that they changed the subject of the art show to botanical flower paintings! Mine is more fanciful and not as realistic as they may want for a botanical painting, but I may just enter it anyway. What do you think?
I'm a mother of 5, mother in law to the two wonderful ladies, Katina and Gabby, and "over the moon" for my granddaughter, Evie. I'm married to my words cannot express how great he is husband, Rich (jazz drummer extraordinaire). I also am a fan of my son Jonathan's painting, drawing and comedic talent, http://cave-o-horrors.blogspot.com/, and of the very talented actress, Katherine Celio, www.katherinecelio.com, and so proud of my daughter Aletheia who designs Apple Computer's web page. I go to lots of my daughter Bethany's soccer games and soon will be Grandma again to my son David and his wife Gabby's baby boy, Andre. I created this Fine Arts business in 2006 and hope it lasts for a very long while.
