Loved working in yellow and white
Daisies are in full bloom and yellow finches chatter in the gardens
Working on book , winter in the middle of summer
The garden work always inspires me
The fourth was a wonderful day with family!! 
Tea in the garden in early morning , the best of the day 
Sunflowers are coming to bloom!!

And the Beat goes on.....

 Spring is very slowly arriving in the Midwest... we would get so excited about the warmth coming in...then
 a snow swirls in one morning.... threatening the Magnolias and daffies... but they survived and we did also...
 Spring brings a new palette.. softer brighter pure hues...fun to try and catch the beauty... Painting with my
 grandson is a favorite activity we do together... always creating a story with our pictures... 
 I love to get Chinese Brush painting books out of the library and have fun with my brush... painting birds and flowers with the least amount of strokes... a great way to practice
 Everyday brings inspiration to get it down on paper... the colors outside are swirling with so many shades of green... we welcome the celebration!!

The Season Begins

 March begins the journey of Spring Weddings... .This one we just finished.. and It was such a joy..and so 
 Sweet... working with my dear friend and daughter through the whole preparation was such fun....
 The Colors were gorgeous...but I must confess it was really hard to pick flowers to match the beautiful Salmon color of the bridesmaids... finding the right rose and combining two peach colors was really scary 
 Deciding how to design and where to put things was not easy...but fell into place as we sought God's hand 
 all the way... we always begin with prayer... This is God's glory to create... He has given us the joy of 
 handling His creations... we need His help... ..I loved working with David Austin roses...this one was Juliet
 like picking a rose from the garden... it handles so well... and Parrot tulips...just amazing.. I learn so much 
 from each wedding project.. and I look forward to the next... I hear it will be in shades of purple... 
  ....I am truly Blessed to be able to participate in creating beauty for such a special occasion...
