Red Tulips, Pink Tulips, and Daffodills

Spring Morning
Oil on Canvas Panel 14" x 11"  sold
Saturday morning was bright and sunny, a perfect morning to  get out the French easel and paint outdoors for the first time this season. It was made even more special because of the event of the day! Our Burley Public Library hosted a one day showing of work by local artists in conjunction with our current campaign to pass a bond election in May to build a new library.
 I was a High School student here when the current library was built in 1959. It was wonderful then, an asset to the community. Now, it desperately needs to be replaced. I am pleased to be able to assist in the effort in any way I can.
These tulips and daffodils are in bloom in front of the Library, so I sat out my easel, Claudette Bray joined me and we had a pleasant time chatting and painting along with talking to Library patrons.

When this painting sells, a portion of the sale will be donated to the new library!

You really captured the essence of the flowers, Marilyn, they're beautiful! How nice to have plein air painted, too. Sounds like it was a wonderful day all around.

Great to hear from you! Thank you! It was a wonderful day. And today will be too, if I ever get it off the ground....
