Spring is Late, but Here are Some Flowers!

I don’t where you all are, but Spring is really late in Wisconsin this year! It is actually snowing as of this writing! Snowing! I know, crazy, right? I mean, we are usually done with snow by late-March, early-April. Of course, the latest that we’ve ever gotten snow up here is May 10, 1990… I’m really hoping that doesn’t happen again (it had been 70°F the day before).

But if it does, it does. Although I really long for a nice 60°F day!

In any case, I hope these flowers brighten your day a bit. 🙂

Here’s another picture (but Peanut’s whiskers are in the way… he likes to be in on everything going on in our little abode).

Stay warm!

Love Oil Pastels

OK – I’ve rediscovered completely my love of charcoals and oil pastels! I did enjoy my brief foray into oil paints. And I plan to dig deeper into oil paints after we move into a roomier apartment (I didn’t realize that oils take sooooo long to dry).

While waiting for my oil painting experiments to dry (10 days, no kidding!), I grabbed my oil pastels and charcoals, and got crackin’… here’s what I did:

And, then Peanut inspected my work:

I think he approved… it’s hard to tell sometimes… 😉

Obviously, I enjoy nautical themes. I’m working a bigger project right now, in oil pastels. I’m hoping to have it done by the end of the coming week. So happy to be creating art again!

Blessings!
