Rainbow Tulips Watercolor Painting

I've been inspired by tulips lately and I want to make a needlework design based on tulips for a new spring design so I painted these over the weekend. I wanted to try and blend the colors as if the bulb colors had mixed, I love when that happens and there are swirls of color on the petals.

Fresh Flowers ACEO Watercolor Painting

We explore the desert a lot and find great old containers that were just left by people long ago. We find wood and metal containers and I like to bring them home to fill with flowers. They are very shabby, rusted or splintery and look great filled with blooming flowers.

Pink Tulip Fields ACEO

Since it is almost winter I am missing tulips so thought I would paint some on a little ACEO format. I need to go to somewhere sometime and see tulip fields, where are there tulip fields except Holland?

Desert Tarantula for Halloween

We were out in the desert exploring a couple weekends ago near Pyramid Lake and my son saw this desert tarantula near his foot. We explore the desert a lot and haven't run into one of these big guys before. He gave me the creeps for a while after I saw him, big and hairy. I thought he was perfect for Halloween.
