Flowers in a Pot Watercolor Painting

Inspired by the United States Botanic Garden

This past weekend, as my Father’s Day gift, I took a half-day to myself and headed out to the U.S. Botanic Garden and National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC. For parents with little kids, there is nothing like having time to yourself!

The U.S. Botanic Garden is an amazingly beautiful place to visit, if you ever get the chance. Ironically enough, this peaceful place of zen is located right next to the U.S. Capitol building!

Here is one of several flower paintings to come that are inspired by the dazzling flora on display there:

A Flower Watercolor for Dancers

With the spring season in full force, I’ve been enjoying making new paintings of flowers lately. So when my wife asked me to paint something to be raffled for an event with members of the local American Dance Therapy Association chapter, I thought I’d paint a flower that is dancing.

Here it is! Prints are available here.

Three Cherry Blossoms Painting Print

The last of the cherry blossoms are hanging around before turning into spring leaves! One of the joys of living in the Washington DC region is seeing this short burst of pink, rose and white colors every year.

While I painted this one a year ago, this artwork is now available as a fine art print in sizes 8×10, 12×16, 16×20, 18×24 and 24×36. It features three cherry blossoms in peak bloom, with hues of pink, rose, purple and white.

Series of Watercolor Flower Paintings

A few months ago, I did some watercolor floral paintings on 18″ x 24″ watercolor paper for a neighbor of mine. These will be nice for them to look at as we get into the colder seasons and the flowers go away until next spring!

Each painting was custom-framed with Michigan-grown poplar wood frames that I stained with Bio-Shield 100% non-toxic wood stain:
