I've been busy in the studio working on lots of new paintings! To celebrate the onset of spring and summer, I've completed some botanical paintings of tulips, like the piece shown here, Three More Tulips, 30 by 30 inches, Acrylic painting on panel. To check out more botanical artwork, click here.
Today I visited the beautiful Peppermint Farm in Perkasie, PA, the site of the 44th Bucks County Designer House & Gardens. This year, a portrait of me painted by the amazingly talented Tom Gass graces the upstairs hallway. It was such fun to visit the house and see my more beautiful self rendered in oil paint hanging on the wall. Tom's paintings fill the upstairs halls and are a treat for the eyes. (To see more of his work, click here.) The interior designers for this year's house include Peggy Pook Oehler and Victoria Guillot, and downstairs in the dining area is a mural by Carol Nagel. All the designers did such gorgeous work on this house, so if you are in the area, it is well worth a visit! The house will be on display until May 26, 2019. For more information, click here.
