A Perfect Spring Event

I don’t know about you, but I’m done…

D O N E

with Winter.

Goodbye, adios, move on…

D O N E.

Lucky for me, Spring is just around the corner. I’ve seen proof! Hints of color are beginning to rise out of the colorless ground I’ve been looking at all Winter. And, the best part is it is almost time for my new favorite Spring tradition, the Skagit Valley Tulips!

This will be my third year to experience the tulip farms and the beautiful blooming color as far as the eye can see. It is a vision to behold.

And, a creative canvas for me and my camera!

So if you need a little “advance color” as we move through March I’ve got just the thing. I’m honored to again be a contributor to the A Perfect Event emag and for the Spring issue my focus was all about color, tulips, and creative expression.

Sit back.

Take a deep Winter-be-gone breath.

Click on the cover page of my story below and be transported into a field of tulip color…

When you finish taking in the blooms, check out the ENTIRE issue of the magazine for beauty and inspiration at each turn of the page (and a “bonus” photo from me hidden somewhere in the issue).

If you live in the Pacific Northwest or plan to visit in April, stop by the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival for your own color treat and to take some blooms straight off the farms.

 

Winter Blue & Purple

Good morning!

It’s 27 degrees in Seattle this morning. That’s just cold.

My fingers feel blue. My feet may have moved into purple stage. Cold I tell you!

My soul is feeling some blue and purple too. But, not from the cold. It’s feeling some residual blue sky and purple cloud sunset beauty from Monday night. I thought I’d take my bus commute to thaw out and share some warm color inspiration.

It was chilly at the Seattle waterfront, but not 27 degrees chilly. Even in the cold, art makes me warm.

Here’s to feeling my blue and purple…
In your soul only!
