So are you just itching for warmer temperatures, sunshine on your face, short sleeve shirts and no jackets?  I definately am feeling the need for some Vitamin D.  We actually have been pretty spoiled by having some early spring here in the Northwest...and to celebrate I am going to share my new "Garden Gate" series of paintings with you!  These pictures took me FOREVER to finish...there was the first cold...then the second cold...then picking up extra hours at work for the other people with get the picture.  So anyway here are the newest images from Talking Brush Studio...

"Garden Gate"
This picture was inspired by a photo that I took on Bainbridge Island.  I love this old gate and as you can see from the photo, I took some artistic liberties!

The next painting I call "Basket of Tulips" You can see why I called it that...

"Basket of Tulips"

This was also inspired from a building on Bainbridge which is some type of toolshed or something...I believe it is VERY old.  I did add a window which does not exist in the real building... 

Now for my new attempts at painting images of things that have a breath...yes...real living, breathing, full of life things...

"Mr. Robin"

Don't you love the fence that Mr. Robin is next to.  Here is a picture of it...and yes, it's also on Bainbridge.

And last but not fact quite possibly the "Miss Chickadee".  She's a wee little bird hiding on the handle of the watering can...

"Miss Chickadee"

Miss Chickadee sits on top of my Dear SIL's watering can which lives in Lynden. 

Thanks for visiting me and indulging me by viewing my new paintings.  Hope you enjoyed them and I look forward to more new paintings on the horizon.
