Bloom True

Thought I’d share a piece from a series I am working on – ‘Bloom True’. The smells and colours of the emerging spring made me want to paint flowers.

Acrylic on canvas (20"x16")

Recently I was introduced to the incredibly talented Flora Bowley in a post by Lorrie Spotts, and instantly loved her work.  I was intrigued to then discover she is teaching a workshop at Squam in the autumn, entitled… Bloom True! It felt like a sign so I have recklessly signed up for Squam and will be heading back to the US for more creative fun with lovely American gals later in the year. I have also signed up for a photography workshop with Susannah Conway and wabi-sabi paper with Judy Wise. Anyone else going? It’s going to be so much fun.

But for now, I am living in the moment of gorgeous sunshine, long mountain bike rides and painting – bliss. Happy weekend!


  1. lovely painting, Beth =-)

    wow! it sounds like your creativity is truly UNLEASHED!! looking forward to reading about your time at SQUAM =-)

  2. I am green with envy. I found Flora Bowley via Lorrie as well and fell instantly in love also. However, I won't be heading to Squam this time around. I hope you have a magnificent time. That is so great that you are going.

  3. I am really going to try to make it to Squam! I love Flora Bowley. It would be fun to see some Artful Journey Alums! I will let you know.

  4. wow! beautiful!
