We got back last night from our Easter trip to Florida. The weather there was warm and sunny. Perfect weather for flowers and butterflies. I am painting as much as I can getting ready for the Potomac Bonsai Festival.

Iris and Butterfly

I feel like I'm under pressure for the Bonsai Festival. Which is good because it makes me paint. This is also one of my favorite subjects.

Come to the Potomac Bonsai Festival

For complete details on the Potomac Bonsai Festival go HERE. I will be there displaying my original Chinese Brush Art painting and will have some of my art available for sale as prints and note cards.

There are a number of workshops available where bonsai experts will help you get started in this wonderful art form.  Experts are coming from across the U.S. to help foster bonsai's popularity.

This Spring Bonsai Festival lasts for three days and consists of a bonsai show, a regional juried show, a new talent competition, beginner and intermediate/advanced workshops, bonsai demonstrations and a bonsai vendor bazaar. The vendor bazaar provides bonsai artists and any visitors the opportunity to purchase bonsai, plant material, tools, and pots related to the art and horticulture of bonsai.

Don't miss it.

Purple Cone Flower

I was really excited about this subject. Hsi-Mei my teacher was excellent on instructions. I grew up surrounded by these flowers.
