Flowers for the First of March
It is snowing again. (Sigh) Probably another eight inches. To cheer us up, I am posting a flower picture! I enjoyed adding filters and adjusting the color. I named it "Hydrangea Bouquet" because it looks like an entire bouquet in this one bloom.

Hint of a Peony
I love doing digital paintings like this which look like watercolors. It is the layering of transparent colors which give it the effect of watercolor paints. It looks soft and dreamy. This would be lovely printed on chiffon. You would never know this starte...

Just Laugh
It has been a rough week with my husband in the hospital. He is home and doing better. Now having a chance to sit with my computer and art work is a real treat. I love to make backgrounds for quotes like this.

Birds in Winter
The feeder near our window is a busy place. The birds perch in the rhododendren as they wait their turn to approach the feeder and pluck a few seeds. Our cat, Maci, lounges on the back of the recliner only inches from the glass and watches avidly. With the ...

Thanks for the good energy. We are adjusting and Bob is doing better. We have afternoons and evenings by the fire. Bob reads and I sit at my work table and create while supper simmers.
