© Dawn Eaton, Growing Like a Weed, 22x28 in., acrylic on 1 1/2 in. wrapped canvas
This one has been hanging around the studio for months! It needed somethin' somethin' and I couldn't seem to wrap it up. So, I took more photos, started a smaller version in watercolor and kept working with the values and the layers of color.
And the pieces of the puzzle finally came together.
'Growing Like a Weed' is about determination and rapid growth. It's about flourishing.
I have also been painting tulips on miniature canvases and I am teaching a Tulip Time workshop this Saturday morning (April 27th, 2013) from 9:30-11:30am.
I think these little cuties will make special Mother's Day gifts (Sorry to spoil the surprise, Mom!) Click on a tulip or send me an e-mail for more information about purchasing a miniature tulip or attending the workshop.
