Kerri Rosenthal Art + A Winner

Kerri, Kerri, how does your garden grow? 

If my garden was made of art, I’d want it made of these! Kerri Rosenthal’s art just exudes botanical beauty and floral fantasy. Tulips, daisies, poppies and every other type of flower jump of the canvas and wake up any room.

Let’s see what’s blooming!

See something you like or want one of the above in a different color way — Kerri loves commissions! Just tell her you saw it here!

And, the lucky winner of the purple, limited edition Tulips2K15 is…#1 Marsha Cannon of the sublime blog, On Pinehurst Place. I’ll be in touch!

Thank you for all of the heartfelt comments. I wish I could send one of Kerri’s paintings to each and every one of you. 

If friends were flowers, I’d pick you!
