Beautiful weekend...

Another beautiful weekend. The weather was perfect and we did not have to be anywhere. So we hung out at home. Of course we did some yard work but it was enjoyable. We also had visitors...some were camera shy but we caught this little fella and my favorite bird - a robin.

Here is our chipmunk friend. He watches everything we do and complains quite loudly if we get out of line.

and I cannot resist another pic of flowers.

Beautiful Spring...

After a weekend of rain, today was chilly and partly sunny early in the day but sunny and warm later in the day. The sun was very welcome. It is Patriot's Day and the 114th running of the Boston Marathon was this morning. I would think the chill in the air with a slightly overcast sky made for ideal conditions.

No work today, so by 7:00 a.m. I was checking out of the grocery store and by 8:00 a.m. I was painting. Lately, all my spare time goes into some sort of creative endeavor.

This is the beginnings of a cover for a new art journal. The tulips were drawn onto an old page out of a crumbling paperback book; gesso the page, sketch and paint. Easy peasy. I like what I have so far and will add detail over the next few days.

No pics yet of the other paintings I am working on, so I thought some spring pics might be in order.

Thanks for visiting
