Delicious Texture

I've been working on a series of small heavily textured oil paintings inspired by the cherry blossoms in DC. The first in the series, Afterglow Cherry, 10" x 10", oil on canvas, now available at www.annmariecoolick.com.

Tropical Inspiration

I visited the US Botanic Garden in Washington, DC last month and was completely inspired by the bounty of lush palm trees in the Tropical Room. If you haven't been yet, you must!! Here are the first few pieces in my Tropical Canopy series to be continued this winter. Both pieces are available at www.annmariecoolick.com
