New Every Morning

Bought some tulips to grace the table this Sunday...and their color just had to be painted... It has been
a treacherous day outside my window with freezing rain....but inside my studio I am painting Spring and enjoying wonderful music..and remembering wonderful words..... that had to be written down...

I read this quote in a blog...and must share it with you here also...

"A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry and see a fine picture everyday of his life in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which 
God has implanted in the human soul, Johann Wolfgang VonGoethe 
That is what I did this morning.. so refreshing...

Spring Cards

 This week I worked on my Spring collection of cards... they have been fun...
 I found a stamp that goes perfect with my style..and these are the backs of the cards
 I have four series and most of them I have put on my etsy shop...
 and some are going to Indianapolis.. to a cute shop in Fountain Square, called Lilly's Soap shop...
Each card has a brown craft envelope, it all looks so Springish....:)

Spring in Mind

 The Weather has been mild lately... but then swings back to cold...but since the days are longer... the birds 
 are beginning to sing their Spring songs... so I feel like painting flowers and birds again... yeah!.... 
 And I am dreaming of the flower garden, ..... bigger this year..more varieties.... can't wait to get 
 into the garden.... 
Signs of Spring are popping up all over..... I know we still could have snow...but not for long...

 In our household Valentines day celebration is a big Tradition... We make our own cards...and we get to
 together to share how much we love each other...and anybody else near by we can bring into the Love circle... it is just one of those nutty things we do.
these are some we made with a dear friend one night... such creativity
Sunday lunch with the grand-kids... and valentines is a real special event, they even make their own cards also 

I loved Heather's crochet heart bunting..

Peonies study

 Time to think Spring..and get practicing on our favorite flower....the Peonies.... which are pretty hard .. 
 It is all about negative space... shadows...and shape... I love trying... and after a busy day doing all sorts
 of challenging things... I love to sit in the evening and play... with my paint.. and just let the colors flow
and I love thinking of Spring... the excitement of seeing flowers in the garden again...

 Painting..then came back for a huge pot of my favorite mix... black tea and cinnamon Tempest.. yum
 Thinking Spring... so practicing flowers....

Hope you have a great weekend... we will be having snow... but I will be painting flowers....
