Hi Everyone!
Hope you're all well!
Thank you for all your comments on my last post! Means a lot to me!
It's pouring rain here and by the end of this week, we will be reaching summer temperatures! Crazy! Today I was outside, trimming a tree and I was getting too hot! LOL!

Things are starting to sprout!
I finished a painting.
Here are some progress pictures.
"All You Are Is Love" (5" x 5" Wood)

What Do You Think?

Hi Everyone
Hope you're all doing well!
The snow is starting to melt around here! I truly think Spring has arrived!

When I show my art, on my blog, I love hearing all your comments. Especially when I show my progress pictures. I really find it interesting how people "see" or "feel" art. Even if they don't like something, I think all feed back is good!

I just finished another painting, which I will be showing you soon. When I showed this painting to someone close to me, they said, do you want the honest truth? I said, I wouldn't want it any other way.  They said it looked "vulgar".

I looked up what vulgar meant, and some of the words that were mentioned were, tasteless, gaudy, garish, rude, indecent etc.

It's funny, I took no offence and kind of smiled. As you all know, I paint my adult crows and baby crows and sometimes, you might even see a woman. I truly never force a painting.

But, I have to admit, I have "changed" some of my art, because of what someone said. And, I thought, what am I doing? I always tell people to be true to their soul and most of the time I am, but now I'm going to be 100%.

Wait till you hear what I called this painting. Everything came together, with this piece and what I am writing to you today.

Here are some of the progress pictures of the painting.
Before I show you the finished piece, one of the main things the person didn't like about this painting, was the design above the bum. I said that is her "tattoo"! LOL!

Finished painting:
"I Hear You, I Feel You, I Honour You And I Am Here To Be Me, Now, As Never Before"
(8" x 10" canvas)
(Personally, I just love the feeling of the entire painting. Especially the way the crows are looking.)

I have to admit, this discussion started, because the place that makes the bags and journals that I got, started to make new bags, that are purses and I think this would be so cool as a purse. I know not everyone would wear it, but I would.

I didn't realize I was "thinking" so much of everything!
I just have to go for it!! At least I can say, it's all unique! 😀

Have a great one!

I forgot, I did design a mother and baby crow purse too.

Hi Everyone
Hope you're all well!
Well, we made it through the storm! Haven't been out of the driveway since early Friday morning! LOL! Hopefully by Wednesday.
We got high winds, rain, freezing rain and ice pellets.
I didn't know there was a difference between freezing rain and ice pellets. When everything started to come down, I thought it was snow, wrong! Ice pellets!
I know this doesn't look too bad on our driveway, but that is all ice! You can see the little path I made with some salt to the end. The snow plow filled the end and I pushed out as much ice as I could, but there is still a large hump and there is no way of moving it! Spring to Summer temperatures by the end of the week, so hopefully it will be all melted.

The power flickered off and on a couple of times, but really not that bad!
I felt bad for all the animals, so I started to put some seed out the back door for them.
(Warning, lots of photos! LOL!)

Once one comes, they all start coming!
Here comes the birds!
The Redwing Black birds started to come in too.
Mr. Cardnial was on the bird feeder.
Mrs. Dove looked at me through the window.
And, then sneaky grey squirrel was trying to get into the house! LOL!
The black squirrels and Mr. Woodpecker came to visit too. It was a fun afternoon!

I will leave you with my mom's cactus plant. It's starting to bloom again. Don't ask me the name of it, because I don't know! LOL!
