Head to Canvas Makes Heart Sing

Head to Canvas Makes Heart Sing
Violet and her Vitamin D

Violet and her Vitamin D

Bare trees, often gray skies and patches of ice and snow on the ground sends many a snowbird down to warmer climes this time of year in the northern hemisphere- searching for Vitamin D and greener pastures.

However, I am no snowbird (at least not yet) and have been watching the snow fall from my easel, with Jane Eyre on audio books, and visions of springtime dancing from my head to canvas. I have been commissioned to create the painting for this year’s Wilmington Flower Market which will be reproduced into archival prints, posters, and notecards with proceeds benefiting children’s charities in Delaware which makes my heart sing.

All of which I can’t wait to share with you at a later date.  Working with Tina Klumpp, this year’s chair person and Terri Pennington, a board member we’ve got plans to unveil the painting before the festival at two different venues (including Drip Cafe in Hockessin, DE), and will be scheduling times during the festival that I will be there signing the prints as well.

Stay tuned, spring is right around the corner and I am so excited to share with you what that looks like!
