Pink Tulips and Portraits

Last fall, I helped plant a garden for the Pink Tulip Project which is a fundraising project that benefits the Women's Cancer Fund at the Maine Cancer Foundation. Gardens are established to raise funds, create awareness and support for those who have been affected by breast cancer and beautify the community.

On my run the other day, I noticed that they are all in full bloom around the city. Everyday, Sophie and I walk by this one blooming in front of a hotel up the street. I caught it the other evening as the sun was setting.


Still obsessed with doing portraits for Julia Kay's Portrait Party on Flickr. Above is my friend Donna. Together, we survived the Dalvero Academy boot-camp last summer and we are going back again.

I am so impressed by your watercolor portraits - they're really nice. And, the tulips are so bright and colorful - well done! nancy

I like your watercolours, they are relaxed and soft and a bit contemporary. The tulips are very nice, however I must say my favourite is the Forsythia (the first picture)... oh and the two pigs are really cute.

How did I get so behind? This will not do. Your work is great. The portraits are wonderful, and I especially like the last one - so impressive.

These are awesome, Jennifer--I've been really enjoying all your portraits--they're wonderful. The tulips are stunning, and the cause is a good one. My younger sister was diagnosed with breast cancer in January and is fighting a battle as we speak against it. I know many people will appreciate your supportive efforts for such a good cause. xo

I'm jealous of your boot camp experience!

Wow Jennifer, I have stumbled upon your portraits! I am amazed by your work and am drooling over your loosely applied brushmarks and the way the colours run an mingle, all of which is gently held together by the ink drawing. Superb!
