We are expecting April showers today.
That’s okay, because they will be bringing May flowers.
The daffodils and hyacinths and forsythia are already painting a bright and beautiful Spring.
I woke up early yesterday and felt like painting, but didn’t know what to paint. Scrolling through Pinterest, I found some lovely art done by Antigoni Tziora of Greece. This artist uses oil, acrylic, and watercolor mediums to create romantic figurative work. I tried recreating one in just watercolor, and this is what resulted. I’d like to try more experimenting with this. It was a fun practice to do.
Wishing you showers of joy, love, peace, and happiness!
The daffodils in my yard are shooting up and on the verge of bursting open.
Spring is such an exciting time! It seems there is something new to see every day. Bright yellow daffodils will soon be the star of the show in our front yard leading the way for the forsythia and maple tree buds and leaves and the grass turning green.
Charlie is enjoying napping in the warm sunshine on the deck or in the grass instead of curling up in bed.
The birds are singing and the turkeys are gobbling.
What could be more enchanting and welcoming than the beginning of Spring?
Besides the turning of leaves in Autumn….
or the first snowfall in Winter….
or the first bare feet in the grass in Summer?
In honor of the daffodils, I painted this very loose and dreamy watercolor I call, “Essence of Daffodils.”
For those of you not from Mars :), it’s really a bigger event than you can imagine, and we are fortunate to be a part of it!
Colleen is been busy making these adorable little trees and festive holiday signs.
While I’ve been busy painting
We are excited to share our joy! The Mars Craft Show features hundreds of local artisans spread out between the Mars Middle School and Mars High School (where you can find us – in the Auxilliary Gym). A shuttle bus runs all day between the two buildings between 10am and 4pm on Saturday, November 17, 2018.
In addition to this event, we have two special birthdays coming up for a Pap Pap and granddaughter who share the same birthday. I also have a short overnight business trip this week, so a lot going on.
I’m going to take a few days off from blogging, so if you don’t hear from me, know I am just busy and having fun and will be back soon.
