Painting and dreaming of warm weather...

I've been doing a lot of painting since it's so cold outside right now and I can't be in the garden. Maybe this weekend.....the forecast is supposed to be warmer and I have some onions, garlic and chives to put in. Hurry up spring!

I was comissioned to do a painting of a rooster for Penny at The Comforts of Home. She loves roosters and has quite a collection. If you don't know Penny, stop by to see her. She's a mosaic artist. She shares her beautiful home and also enjoys gardening and cooking.

Here is the rooster painting. It's 5x7 and done with acrylic paints on watercolor paper.





I started another painting yesterday of a field of daisies. I had this idea in my mind and I also thinks it's because I'm SO ready for spring and warm weather.

It's still in the works.

I have quite a bit to do, but I thought I'd show you anyway.



Hope everyone enjoys their day!

I've also added a few new things to my etsy shop. Hope you'll take some time to browse.

Donna, your rooster painting is going to look so wonderful in Penny's new home! The daisy painting is looking good too and I'll look forward to seeing it finished.

I'm so ready for spring myself! I have some onions to put in the ground and of course some fruit trees I ordered came yesterday. So I hope it really is warm this weekend so I can do something with them!
