Spring at the Norfolk Botanical Gardens

Sara and I got a membership to the Norfolk Botanical Gardens this weekend. The weather was beautiful and the Azaleas and dogwoods were blooming fiercely. The park has several miles of trails that are much friendlier to the stroller and walkers/runners than our busy streets. Looks like the blog will have a few more flower photos in the future.

Painting Through Prosek – Greenback Cutthroat Trout

The colors on my rendition of James Prosek’s Greenback Trout are as bright and bold as the fish’s comeback from near extinction. I had to paint this one in a flurry during our little one’s evening naps. Fortunately, he was gracious enough to even give me the time to post it. Sleep well, little David. 
Prosek’s version is very colorful. 

Do you see that one little orange spot in the middle? Well, I went back and covered with a black spot like it is supposed to be. I guess that’s what I get for rushing 🙂
