As the tulips, hyacinth and daffodils fade, the azalea hill is booming. I still can’t figure how to capture them in print though. Will this be the year? The bushes are fuller then ever. You can’t delay an azalea bursting into color once it starts. We are fast approaching the time for garden parties -to drink in the loveliness.
Parrot tulips are a tulip favorite for design purposes. I look for strength of character in a flower. This one? Gobs of character.
Ophelia is a new chiffon scarf this Spring.
Meet some new fabric I’ve just started printing. It’s an all cotton lightweight gauze. It is lovely -a little heavier than the chiffon but awfully cool. I’ve run three hot blue designs to show it off. Here’s one called The Blues.
AND, I still have some on hand. See all our in-stock scarves here.
What do you think? Due to my hand surgery I haven’t prepared photos for the scarf pages yet but know, I have three printed and more will be ready to sell in February.
And, never fear! Visions of new designs are dancing in my head as I plot returning to the Computer and of course, a soon- to -emerge, spring growing season. Hope all your good visions come true!
Our scarves and pillows begin in the garden. I capture their growing cycle with a digital Nikon which offers limitless options for their use in my artwork. We currently have a line of gorgeous all cotton sateen pillows in stock. I ship direct anywhere in the United States. Our chiffon made-to-order scarves have enjoyed rapid sales starting Spring 2018. And, this fall, the new infinity scarves. You can order by text or email me direct.
