pretty little dancers

tulips in a field, Arulean spring flowers, Degas pink dancers, macro flower photography,

Pinks and Greens, a field of flowers.

Like Degas’ dancing ballerinas the tulips and poppies move in concert.

My mind, is painting. And that’s a start.

Spring Flower Dance


Amazing, isn’t it?

I’m wondering how I might communicate such joyfulness.

How I might express the loveliness of their dance.


I’m wondering if watercolors  like this …..  would do the job, or acrylics?

Maybe a palette knife on a large canvas. Something wild and free, perhaps like this…….

Arulean Spring Flowers


After 4+ hours of roaming up and down those slopes,  I think I need to let it all sink in a little while.

Use some patience.


Its nearly overload.

But, oh my,  what gorgeous-ness in pinks in greens.  

And serenity.

Degas’ dancing ballerinas,  looking so much like the field of tulips and poppies.

I couldn’t resist including his stunning pastel painting.

And, that cobalt teal dress alongside the pink… that, ensured that  I most definitely did.

Arulean Flower Gardens

There was so much more than even all the glorious colored tulips.

A pond like Monet’s, magnificent magnolias, tumbling waterfalls in mossy dark boulders.

And the wisteria hadn’t even started yet.


It was a painter’s delight.

It would be a marvellous idea  to take the paints and go one day.

And now,  I’m wondering…….  who to go with!!

The act of creation, in any media is a fascinating and magical process. I simply love to create. Expressing in color, line, tone, texture - as if, they were words upon a page. Creating a uniquely me, interpretation. Enjoy More of my "one-of-a-kind" expressive art at and,

    1. thank you Evelyn, both of those were done previously and kind of meant as examples – hope it didn’t lead readers to think I did them now. But anyway, the WC…. yes! everything you said a mix of soft and bold. it actually was done 10 years ago, believe it or not, and i still enjoy it!

      1. Oh … me too 😀 ❤ ((High Five))… Well, yes, I´ll have to cover the First generation of Titans, anytime (soon)… Not sure if solely on Uranus, but yes that he will be included. Did you have something in mind for a collaboration or similar?. If so, please let me know 😀 xx

      2. oh my, I’m no where near up to speed in that regard LOL thanks though!! no… I’ve just got this character in my head, (ie a story) and I find it so interesting how Cronus castrated/killed his father Uranus. I wonder how the ruler of the universe, could have been caught so off guard and weak. so, I’m reading!
