Garden Clubs Art in Bloom

It's nice to be back- our computer crashed and has spent the last week and a half the Apple store being fixed. It's felt like missing an arm!
Last week I was part of a show and anniversary celebration held by the Rhode Island Federation of Garden Clubs. Fifteen pieces of art, mostly paintings, were interpreted by an equal number of floral designers. Above is my painting "Forsythia" and the interpretation by talented floral designer Candace Morgenstern. (It was held in the greenhouse at Roger Williams Park in Providence, hence all the palm trees in the background. Makes it a bit hard to isolate the floral piece.) It was fun being part of this and seeing how Candace interpreted what I painted, as well as seeing the other fourteen pieces.
(And I guess they liked my piece because it made the front page of the newsletter!)
The painting is oil on canvas, 20" x 20" unframed, and is for sale. Email me if you're interested.
