White Tulips

11x14 Oil on Canvas Board Yesterday I joined the open studio at the Columbus Cultural Art Center. I attended classes there about 20 years ago. A couple of artist that were there then was in the class. What a wonderful surprise. They've moved to the second floor and the natural light is unbelieveable! So I signed up for the afternoon open studio, so now I get to stay all day.
I started this from a photograph that I had set up in the studio, then I came home and finished it this morning. Nothing like the real thing for the wonderful colors.

Morning Storm

4x4 Oil on Board
The photo doesn't show the storm clouds very well, but I was surprised how I made rain by dry brushing down from the clouds. I hope to work on landscape this summer as we are going to Colorado for the month of September. The landscape is unbelievable............
