Painting Early Spring in my Studio

Welcome.  I am so happy that you stopped by. It  seems like ages since I posted and visited with you.  I have been super busy painting early Spring flowers and getting ready to re-open my little ETSY shop as well as preparing to teach art  classes in the garden at the beautiful Sherman Library and Gardens - www.slgardens.org.  Please come into my studio and sit and relax for a few minutes with a cup of hot tea.  Bentley, my Studio Assistant, is waiting to show you what I have been up to.

I have been inspired by the beautiful early Spring flowers at the Farmers 
markets - especially the Tulips and Sunflowers.

I collect vintage turquoise Ball jars and love using them in my paintings as well as using the color in my Spring art.

This photo was taken of my paint palette at the end of the day that shows all of the colors I used in my paintings. 
Thank you for stopping by.  I sincerely appreciate your visits, e-mails, comments and those of you who follow my blog.  

Have a lovely week.  Blessings,  Erin

Hello Erin,
I hope everything is doing well for you. I am amazed that you can purchase sunflowers already. They are lovely and very insteresting for painting :o) As always I like very much the bright and cheerful colours you use in your painting. Love the one with sunflowers.
The site of Sherman Library and Gardens looks beautiful. How I wish i could be here to assist to your class.
All the best from France

Oh so pretty...yellow sunflowers are some of my favorites and yellow is definitely my happy color! We still have very cold weather off and on for about another month. I can't wait to get out in the garden. Yours always makes me smile!

Beautiful painting - love the tulips and sunflowers. Yes, I think we have Spring already and 'i can hardly wait to dig in the dirt. Now if we would just get more rain that would be terrific.

Have a wonderful week.
