“A pot of fuchsia in the window of a Bavarian house. The old stone building next to the colorful flowers was a very distinct contrast.”
This painting was inspired by a recent river cruise on the River Rhône in France. Both from the sailing and excursions, my husband and I enjoyed such beautiful flowers and landscape that I just had to capture in a painting.
A short time after returning home I hosted and attended a Judi Betts Watercolor Workshop at our 404 Ranch. From Judi’s workshop was born the composition for the painting I had in mind.
My husband and I decided to stay at the Ranch a couple of days after the workshop was completed and all others had departed. I had a drive to do this painting and from start to finish “Circle of Life” was completed in about 10 hours, a relatively very short time of what is normally invested in a painting of this size and detail. The star that you see in this painting is part of the Brand we use at the Ranch. I felt compelled to include the star because this experience at the Ranch had contributed greatly to the finished work.
