This round background lends itself to a dense circular bloom, the dahlia. They come in all colors and sizes. Remember, this is a painting, not a living flower.
This is my second year doing the street fair that celebrates spring. These are small multi-media works, that will be very affordable. Flowers and octopi are spring like, right?
These round pieces of plywood come from our local Restore. I’m interested in painting a round flower on a round ground. May be too hokey.
Western North Carolina is known for it’s diversity of salamanders and newts. I did a series of 12 red salamanders. The streaming enamel paint makes each one unique. Anyone who’s played in the creeks around here has seen some kind of salamander. I will be showing the series at The Whole Bloomin’ Thing, May 11.
I’m working on a series of small works on paper for the fair. They will be affordable, so come by and pick one. May 11, in front of Art on Depot.
I’m doing series of small paintings from previous big ones. Maybe I can lure people in with a small version, at the street fair, The Whole Bloomin’ Thing.

This screen is 80″x 68″. The image in yesterday’s post is 5″x7″.
These are some production pieces slated for Art on Depot. The drawing is done with enamel paint, flowing from a bamboo skewer. The pastels enhance the atmosphere and season.
The huge bloom is from a Cereus cactus. This oil on canvas painting is at Art on Depot in Waynesville, NC. Drop by and see it and my other new paintings!
