A friend recently informed me, when she was over for a visit, that she had always thought bleeding hearts only came in pink. I am so glad they come in multiple colors, because I have three different varieties growing at my house 😀
Every spring I look forward to the old fashioned white bleeding hearts coming into bloom in the front yard, as well as traditional red ones , and a pink native variety in the backyard. For weeks now my trigger finger has been itching as I have been keeping a close eye on them and on the sunlight out the window for the perfect photo opportunity. Two weeks ago I managed to get out with my camera for a few minutes on two separate occasions when there was a break in the rain and the sun peeked out brilliantly between the clouds.

Covered in raindrops and glistening in the sun, this White bleeding hearts plant has an arc of white heart shaped flowers in the forefront as well as several others looking tiny in the distance where they hide amongst the shelter of the foliage. The rain drops fall down the face of the middle flower like teardrops.

While I was out hiding the Easter eggs I noticed some trillium flowers were blooming out in our forest earlier than usual. So the next time the light was good I grabbed my camera and hiked back out there. There are definitely benefits to living on a half acre of forest 🙂 I only got a couple of shots before the sun went behind the clouds, but that’s typical Oregon spring weather for you 😉

Glistening wet from a recent spring shower, this exotic looking purple trillium blooms beautifully in the Oregon rain forest. A ray of bright sunlight warms the ferns and leaf strewn forest floor in the background.

I have to say I LOVE my yard!
Every spring I look forward to the  white bleeding hearts coming into bloom in the front yard, I love their old fashioned beauty. They are the first blossoms in my yard each spring, followed by the red bleeding hearts, and the pink ones, blooming in the backyard. For weeks now my trigger finger has been itching as I have been keeping a close eye on them and on the sunlight out the window for the perfect photo opportunity. Last week I managed to get out with my camera for a few minutes on two separate occasions when there was a break in the rain and the sun peeked out brilliantly between the clouds. After looking the first batch of pictures, while doing some editing, it occurred to me that they would look lovely against a dark background. so the next time the sun was out I grabbed a dark blue binder we had and stuck it behind the blossoms in the photos. This worked beautifully after editing to soften the background as well as making some other artistic editing choices. I may experiment with some other background choices the next time the lighting is good. Here are just a few, I’ll be posting more here soon….

I think it was back in October or early November when I was in the middle of getting the kids ready for school I noticed how beautiful the sunrise was.  I managed to run for my camera and hop out to the back deck and get  some gorgeous photos during all the early morning rush.

Sunrise Over the Columbia River #9

Layers of lavender purple and pink clouds glow in the dawn light as the sun rises over the Columbia River in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. A white Masonic Lodge nestles next to a church among the shadowy trees of the Rainier, Oregon forest as the Columbia river flows past the city lights of Kelso and Longview, Washington twinkling against the dark backdrop of the mountains ranges beyond.

Today I finally finished the drawing for a Christmas card design I  started on 3 Christmases ago.  Originally I was going to do what most greeting card companies suggest and cut paper and use that technique to keep the design simple. I even had some brown paper that was just the right color for the camels that I wanted on my card.  So after going to Wetcanvas.com and checked their free reference photo library to refresh my mind on what a camel REALLY looks like, I turned the computer off and got to work drawing some camels on my brown paper and cutting them out with an Exacto knife. The camels turned out really well and there was even one who looked particularly spunky and happy to be traveling to Bethlehem. doing the paper cut outs did help with the composition, because it was then just an easy matter of placing one overlapping the other instead of trying to figure out where one would end and the other begin while I was drawing them. By the time I had gotten the Christmas star as well as some other stars cut out, in addition to my camels, some wise men, the manger, and a concept sketch for Mary and Joseph cut out I decided what I really wanted to do was to PAINT the card rather than work with paper cut outs.  In retrospect I wish I had stayed with the original concept instead of changing in mid stream, because I would have been done a long time ago. It created a lot of extra work to have to trace the things I had already cut out onto another piece of paper.  Then I started a long and tedious process of  drawing on tracing paper  and then tracing what I had drawn onto some heavy duty art paper after having cut it and arranged it in the composition I wanted.  Another thing I wish I had done a little differently would be to make the original drawing larger than the card and then just use the computer to shrink it down. Of course that might just encourage me to add even more detail and make things even more complicated ;/

I love the composition in this card. What I was really going for was the “perfect” Christmas card–something that perfectly expressed my feelings and sentiments about the meaning of Christmas, rather than some of the shallower, albeit fun Christmas messages out there. So in the center of this design is a heart with the Christmas star centered above it and piercing downward into it. Then moving around clockwise like a Mandela three little stars seem to dance in with joy in the night sky with the desire to follow the three wise men to Bethlehem. The three wisemen and their camels curve around the heart , hugging it closely on their journey to see the newborn king. Even one of the camels cannot contain his joy has as with a merry face he saunters jauntily along. Beyond the caravan a shepherd kneels with his sheep in adoration of the Christ Child. The infant Jesus smiles in his sleep in the manger as Joseph lovingly supports a weary, but joyful, Mary on his shoulder.  Moving upward around the second half of the heart, the composition then moves through some of the important events of Christ’s life.  We see the sea of Galilee where the apostles on their ship watch in awe as Christ walks toward them on the water. Next we follow a path past the house where the bedridden man is let down through the roof so that Jesus can heal him. The road continues on towards the mount where the multitude listens to Him teaching the Beatitudes. Next is a portrayal Him pleading with his Father in the Garden of Gethsemane. Beyond the Cross the Resurrected Lord is met by Mary at the tomb.

Right now this is simply a line drawing, but by this time next year I plan on having a full color version available for sale. For now, this design is also available on a variety of other zazzle products. Within the next couple days it will also be available as a print and greeting card on both Imagekind and RedBubble. (*UPDATE* now on fineartamerica too)

I just realized  I never made a blog entry about this painting! Better Late than never…

The idea for Midsummer Daydream came from a contest on artistnetwork.com, Artistnetwork.com’s third All-Media Paint-Off!, Garden Angel .The assigned subject was to do a painting based on the photo, Garden Angel, which was of a statue in a garden. Originally the statue in a garden idea did not appeal to me, but as I thought about it I decided if I changed the basic concept from a statue to a living Wood Sprite or Nymph based loosely on the statue and completely changed the composition, that I could make something I liked. Having read a book recently on  composition, I decided to put together something that would move the eye in a circular manner through the painting.
What I came up with was a whimsical scene depicting the young red-headed wood sprite dipping one toe in the water, laying down at the edge of  a lily pond, and creating ripples in his reflection by running his finger in the water playfully while gazing dreamily at his leaf boat which is floating away past lily pads. Completing the scene is a series of faeries skating across the blue water and doing various ballet poses on the lily pads, interspersed with red lilies. Keeping the pallette fairly simple and limited it to blues, greens, and reds helped tie things together and keep it more cohesive.

This  painting is the first I ever completed on time for a competition (I had done one other for another artistsnetwork competition but missed the deadline by a few hours).  This particular painting is very special to me because it was done at a time when I was changing how I viewed myself from a person who “wanted to be an artist someday ”  to seeing myself as an artist–symbolized by the ripples in the sprites reflection. Also there are several areas in the painting that are a little off, such as the position of the sprite’s back leg, but as I have thought about it that has become symbolic to me as well. We all have things we let keep us from following our dreams. To me this painting is about moving on, and living the dream without letting those things stand in the way anymore–moving beyond the mental blocks of  “I can’t do that because” and just believing in ourselves and doing it anyway.

The title “Midsummer Daydream” was inspired by how the wood sprite reminds me of Puck in Shakespeare’s “Midsummer Night’s Dream.”

T shirt featuring a blossoming yellow sunflower basking in the sun as it towers alone in the deep blue sky. When viewed at full resolution, minute details such as the hairs on the sunflower’s stalk and the occasional strand of spider’s web are visible in sharp detail. The large green leaves are translucent in the sunlight. the yellow petals surrounding the bloom like the suns rays twist and turn in sun and shadow. This shirt has a slogan that reads “Just doing my part to add a ray of sunshine to the world!” It looks great in a variety of colors and styles.

The other day my sun flowers finally bloomed. They at least 3 feet taller than I am, and until recently there was not so much as a bud on them. I was beginning to wonder if they were going to bloom at all.  Went out and snapped these pictures as soon as I saw that they had blossomed.
