Painting Roses and More Polka Dots

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.  Last week I shared with you the inspiration for a painting based on a red polka dot vase with Sunflowers.  One of my friends saw my blog post where I talked about how happy my red and white polka dot tea set made me feel while I was home recovering from surgery .  She found a pair of vintage red garden  boots at the Flea Market - they were for a child. She painted white polka dots on them - filled them with white Ice Berg roses and added a little American flag  . . . . and left them in my garden for me to find.



Bentley, My Studio Assistant, discovered the charming arrangement  of roses in the polka dot boots by barking at them.   Imagine my surprise when I went into the garden to see what he was barking at to find the charming polka boots and how happy they  made me!!!






LOL - another painting waiting for me to paint!








Thank you for stopping by.  I sincerely appreciate your visits, e-mails, comments and those of you who follow my blog.  Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to see me paint something special.  I am so looking forward to Fall planting in my garden and sharing a new season with you.

Have a lovely week. Blessings,  Erin

Those boots are made for planting and painting. I start a One Stroke Painting course this sept and cant wait. It isn't a true painting course but if I can do flowers I will be happy, lol...
