Nature is her inspiration. Whatever is blooming at the moment will be the subject that she paints.  During the fall it will be the beautiful color of autumn leaves. During the winter will be snow on bamboo or pine. Nature always provides. Kaplan’s art may be viewed in person at Soft Brush Studio, Alexandria, VA as well as The Loft Gallery & online presence http://www.healing-power-of-art.org/darlene-kaplan.
