"Dogwood" by Carol Thompson


"Cool 'dogwood' blooms rest easily against a vivid early morning glow.  These hardy flowers last a long time, whether on the branch or as cut flowers."

Artist comment:  "In Washington State, and elsewhere I'm sure, there are numerous indigenous dogwood trees.  Their Spring blossoms are a welcome sight after long, wet, grey winters.  This small watercolor on Arches 140# hot-pressed watercolor paper started as an image for a T-shirt at the request of a client.  I recently "rediscovered" the painting and decided to fill in the background and make limited editions from it.  I chose to emphasize the softness of the blossoms by creating a strong dark corner, diffusing into sunlight yellow on the opposite corner.  The result is the impression of morning, as the rising sun is about to shine upon the blooms."
