Wisteria is very distinct with its flowing pattern and draping blossoms. It has an exotic but still delicate quality. Although this unique vine only blooms for a short time each spring, it is more beautiful every year and a definite jewel in the garden.
My recent mixed media painting of wisteria combines a variety of different papers with watercolor and acrylic paint finished with metallic silver linework for emphasis. I have always loved blues and wisteria is one of my favorite flowers.
Do you have a favorite flower? If so, please post it in the comments section. I am always looking for ideas for future paintings...

Just thought I'd share some of the bunnies that have been hopping into place at our house lately as Easter Sunday nears. For a few years now I have been assembling a bunny collection to celebrate this special Spring holiday and these are a few of my favorites...
Hope you all have a very happy and blessed Easter!

Lately I have been inspired by the luminous pastels I see on the Easter decor that is popping up all around. These soft candy colors found their way into this mixed media piece of a climbing rose. It is a watercolor painting enhanced with ribbons, textured papers and beads.
