watercolor by Liana Yarckin
I haven't painted flowers for a while because nobody seems to buy them and "they" say not to enter a floral in a competition. My floral paintings get rave reviews, but, it seems that everyone ends up buying everything else I paint except for the flowers. That's okay, because I don't want to part with this one. When I saw these tulips at the annual Madhatter's Fundraiser at the Dallas Arboretum, I had to take a zillion photos of them. I took some in the morning when it was about 50 degrees and all of the tulips were completely closed, then at 1:30 after it warmed up, the tulips all opened completely. I will have to paint another version of them when they were closed.
Below are some of the paintings that sold at my art show. If you need a gift for Mother's day that is a unique one of a kind - I still have framed paintings at City Cafe waiting to find a home. I posted a bunch on my Liana Yarckin Watercolors facebook page. A season of Aspens, Seals in Newport Beach, Cape Cod, Miami Beach, several Paris scenes, a couple of abstracts and 2 Highland Park paintings.
I am working on some home portrait commissions right now and entries for the SWS Annual Membership Show. Thanks for visiting and staying in touch!
