Nikki’s painting is inspired from sketches from her last night at Bjorklunden when she visited Wisconsin’s Door County in 2009. That year she joined me co-teaching a watercolor workshop at Bjorklunden like she will again this year in September.
Nikki played with the title to reflect the intention of the painting to capture many final possibilities – sunset at the beach, or glowing endings, or beginning ending , or finding the right place to be– cycles of life.
The spring slipped away so quickly that I spent a morning capturing the last of the poppies in photographs. This painting is based on one of those photos. I am a gardener who grows both vegetables and flowers, including poppies. I love trying to capture impressions of these wonderful flowers each year.
We are enjoying this experience of creative exchange. Thank you for joining us on the journey!
I am now making my daily works for this project available for sale online in my Meylah shop here: http://meylah.com/HelenKlebesadel I post them each day after they are posted in the blog.
