Summer Garden

Summer Garden is the most recent print to be added to the store. The original is a mixed media painting with a dragonfly with paper wings and a paper grasshopper with some painted features. Colorful flowers with floating dandelion puffs and a quote from Heinrich Heine, a German author, composer. “She dances here, She dances there. The glimmering, glittering flutterer fair.” This would be a perfect picture for a child’s room, someone who is taking dance possibly. It can be purchased in three different sizes. The link to this picture is here.

When I start a painting I usually just have the basic idea first. I draw it in the sketchbook first to see if that idea works at all. I knew I wanted to do swirly flowers and a grey and white background on a 24 X 24 inch stretched canvas.

I then just walk by it for a couple of days to decide what I want to do next. I knew I needed to add some different flowers with various types of leaves.

Then again I just walk by the easel for a day or two deciding what else I want. In this case it was dandelions with floating seeds a dragonfly, grasshopper and a quote by Heinrich Heine. This Summer Garden is alive with activity,and will make a happy addition on someones wall. A print of this can be purchased in my Etsy Shop.
