Winter White Garden

Welcome.  I am so  happy that you stopped by. My garden gate is always open for you to come in and sit and relax with a cup of tea while I share with you the inspirations for my art.  I like to plant a few pots of Paper white bulbs each week starting in early November so I will have some blooms throughout January until my garden flowers start waking up. In spite of the unusually cold weather and frost we have had in Southern California - my white Iceberg roses are still blooming (they will be cut back in January and seem to want  one last bloom before they are cut back).


Let's join Bentley, my helpful Studio Assistant, in the garden and we will share our Winter White inspirations with you.



























"A glad heart makes a cheerful countenance."  Proverbs 15:13


Wishing you and your family Peace, Joy, and Happiness in the New Year.

I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to each and everyone for your visits, comments,
e-mails and to my loyal and special followers. Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to see me paint something special. 


Blessings, Erin

The painting with the white roses is beautiful. I like it and the colors are very well balanced.
