April Showers Bring May Flowers
But January showers bring me flowers right now!
Hey, we're all sick of this cycle of doom and gloom weather we've had but what the -- ???
Daffodils in January, even in the Sunny South, is a bit much. Stepping out to check the mail today, I found these babies,as if by real magic, popping up out of nowhere. Seriously, they were not there yesterday.
What was there yesterday and several days before that was drenching rain and COLD -- as in the 30s. And the deer – including two bucks, so you know that means trouble in the near future - have started coming by regularly to frisk and play around the recently opened Corn Bar in our yard. So something is going on somewhere but still -- it seems a little early to me.
A looksee at what I am working on. An eye for ... mmm. What do you have an eye for? An eye? Beauty?
This babe is going in a new work journal. I don't make colour wheels when I am trying out new pens, pencils and paints as I have seen others do.
I just dive into the pool and get it over with, immediately starting with a couple of small figures or faces.
The phrase "an eye for" was on a mag just beside my workbook and I thought it would go well with where I'm headed in this next book. Five Senses Plus Two.
Say, maybe I will disintegrate it like Jeanne is doing to a lucky book here.
Don’t forget the deadline for the HEARTZAPALOOZA Art Drawing and Giveaway is February 1st at midnight. The actual name drawing is February 2nd, at midnight. If you have already entered, just ignore this reminder. But say, if you just want to leave a cheerful little note, I am all about that.
Get more of what you love.
