Desert Super Bloom...

April 1, 2017

I had been hearing about the super bloom out in the desert for a while.  Because of all the rain we've had over the winter, the flowers went crazy!  So I decided to pack up my camera and my kids to see what all the fuss was about since it's only an hour and a half from where I live.  SO glad I did!  The bloom was winding down and wasn't as amazing as it was a couple weeks ago, but it was still well worth the drive!  Here are some pictures.

 

 

 

 

Here is my oldest daughter sketching!  She takes after me ;) 

 

 

I felt inspired to paint when I got back home so I did a painting from this scene the next day:

 

 

 Here is the painting:

 

 

"Desert Blooms #1" 8x10"

 

I'm very happy with how it turned out, but it's still not good enough.  I can't put my finger on why though.  It will come to me with time.  I spent a couple days fooling with it and made some really great adjustments instead of busting it out and calling it done on the spot.
