Tulip Bouquet is one in a series of five paintings entitled Family Floral Bouquets. Each of them was given to me by a member of my family. This one, Tulip Bouquet, was given to me for Mother's Day by my oldest son and his family.
Nancy Riedell, an internationally recognized, award winning, and Open Studios artist originally from Santa Cruz County, California, now living in Portland Oregon, graduated from San Francisco State University where she studied Fine Arts. Classes included figure drawing, color values, acrylics, oils, and art history. Nancy’s love of art goes back to childhood as her mother encouraged her to develop her art skills by giving her art materials and art books so that she could develop her technique. Nancy’s current medium is watercolor. The bold use of colors and interesting landscapes has played a strong role in Nancy’s unique paintings. She feels that although she has been working with art since childhood, it is only within the last few years that she has felt the calling to go back into her art. Her work reflects her passion well by using strong, saturated color and theme. Nancy likes to take advantage of every opportunity and is known to carry her digital camera with her to photograph subjects for future paintings. She has captured beautiful sunrises in Monterey County, unique beach scenes in Santa Cruz County and unusual rock formations in New Mexico. Nancy’s art has been displayed in galleries from in both the United States and England.
