A blog about my thoughts and my love of artwork as it develops. It reflects some of the basic steps that I go through to achieve the artwork which is eventually presented to Spicher and Co, an innovative design firm that manufactures artwork for the trade. The why, what, how, and where are a few of the questions that I attempt to answer as I blog away! This is a tiny window into the life of a painter, and my hope is that my love for life shines through in the objects that I work to create.

Une belle tulip...
A beautiful Tulip
LOVE the orangey color!
These flowers rank among my favorite. In fact, each year I try to plant them in my yard, knowing that the deer will get them every time. I am always trying to figure out a place that the deer WILL NOT find them, as if there is such a place. I have even had those animals on my front porch (along with bears). Yes I live in the wilderness in greater Pennsylvania ~ just kidding, but not about the bears.
I love orangey peachy tulips.
These were the color and variety I had in my wedding almost 26 years ago.
Look at that blue on the vase
As reflected in the title, I think these (and all the flowers have a very french feel). I have this particular painting up beside my bed. It is, however, for sale on my KOLENESPICHER Etsy page. Take a look at this website if you get a chance. I am listing on it almost daily. I have paintings and other KOLENE stuff that I want to sell!
I wish those tulips in that antique teapot were real, but they are not. I actually am not into artificial flowers that much but liked these.
I like to sit paintings on dressers and tables and on little easels when I can find them. It makes the room interesting and I love the layered look.
Thanks for looking today. This is an one-of-a-kind ORIGINAL painting.
