Dustan Knight

It's spring, it is getting warmer here in NH so I thought I would show you one of Dusty's flower power paintings. " Dutch Waltz"it is called. (she also has a wonderful way with titles) Dusty paints these mammoth (4 feet by 3 feet) beauties on watercolor paper and then mounts them to a wooden support which is about 2.5 inches thick. They stand out from the wall and have a UV coating as to keep them from harm. Lovely! Watercolor without the glass! Below is another shot of the wall in our gallery during the exhibition of this work just to give you an idea of scale. It is truly a wonder to walk in Dustan's flower garden. Stop by this summer for another peek at a few of her works in our "Colours of Summer" exhibition. Or stop by to take a summer painting workshop with her as well at artstream. Rumor has it that she is a whole lot of fun as an instructor as well as a really nice person!

The word for the day is ... bloom ... as in your personal growth, your garden and Bloom county! ( I miss that so much!)

glorious! I gasped on opening your blog! The colors are delicate as the petals are soft.

This is so pretty - makes me wish I still had my shabby chic bedroom - would have fit in so nicely!

Breathtaking. I love that they have no frames too. Like a bouquet on the wall... Such subtle variations of color. True poetry...

yes! ulla! that is it. without the frames, the wrap around painting quality of her pieces allows for all views in the room to look wonderful. She takes great pains in making the work beautiful all over. and no distracting frames for large work...

These are so beautiful. I would like to email you but cannot find an email address. I am very interested in your work and your gallery. I would like to do something similar here in France.
