HAPPY SPRING!


I know that I am a few days past the "official" beginning of Spring, but in celebration of it's arrival, I wanted to introduce a new print to my shop. It's actually a vintage work, since it was completed before I was born (and I'm not exactly a preschooler anymore!)
It's my Father's work in pastel and I have always loved the bright florals and seaside setting. The couple depicted is supposed to be he and my mom.....back when they were carefree newlyweds. Mom is partially obstructed by the shrubbery and parasol, but she's enjoying the scenery! I am framing the original- given to me by my parents, and adding it to my gallery wall.
If you like it you can get your own giclee print, available here.

Paintings of someone you know and love are the best. He was very talented with color..It does have a nice feel of Spring.

Dear Anne,
Your father's painting really sums up Spring. You obviously take after him with your talent. XXXX

I love the fresh love in this work. My son is working in pastel now and loves it. I cannot wait to show his work.
Please tell your parents that this work of art has a "Spring Fever" quality that I adore.
