Pastel Paintings...

I take a class in pastel painting with the lovely Joelle Feldman. You can learn more about her, view her wonderful work and see the work of some of my classmates here.

Over the next few weeks I will post some of the other paintings I have completed.  The one below is part of a series of spring flowers.

This is also a good time to finally join in Creative Every Day 2011.  Um - yup halfway through June and here is my first post in 2011.  :-)

An Orange Spring...

Summer is almost here. Our spring in the Northeast has been beautiful but rainy. Most of the plants love the extra water and when the sun comes out they really sparkle. Last year I planted alot of orange flowers and they really look great this year. Here are a few of my favorites along with two of the five orioles that spent the spring with us.
