Back to Flowers

I finally got to the paints today.. after enjoying a morning with my daughter at the Farmer's market in the city. That was too fun... fresh greens, herbs, raw honey and hand made soaps.. and tons of other wonderful things to eat, taste and smell...
It was all so refreshing.. and it was crowded with people just enjoying shopping..and tasting... I am sorry I did not get pictures.. I just was so busy looking... I recommend it highly.. go on a Sat. morning and bring home a treasure... I bought some beautiful Feathers... :)
Well ... I painted this one tonight.. did not come out the way I planned it.. but I like it.. will call it "Courting"...I think that is what is going on around my bird feeder lately.. and sparrows are my favorite... This one came out darker than I wanted it... will try for another..

Spring in my heart.. Winter outside

Today was a day of renewal, totally no agenda,,,, but to read, paint and think... enjoy the birds
Paint and maybe do some laundry.. It was a restorative day.... We need those . I began painting sheep and lambs... then on to flowers... Thinking up themes for spring paintings... Even though it is 28 degrees outside... and more snow this week... Spring is on my mind..and I love thinking of the colors... textures.....
the soft greens, pinks.. and sun blushed yellows... bending tulips and purple crocus. The turning of grey to pale yellow greens...

The birds are singing a new song... they are very noisy lately.. they know a new season is about to appear.... I love the change..
God says He will make all things new... He shows us this in His seasons...
Don't miss His beauty..
"Be still and know that I am God, I will be exalted in the earth"

So.. I got to stay home today.. I tried chiseling my car, that was a lovely ice sculpture... but did not get very far... anyway it is now covered again.. I fed the birds and painted.. continuing my


Theme of Sheep...
It was a great day to make soup, and paint... and just look out the window...
