Return to me

 Return to me called Ms Quail to Mr Quail as he set off.....
The quail have been busy in the garden, they don't seem to mind the constant rain. I'm undecided on the background? What do you think? I quite like the clean white :) The first stages or this here and here

Garden visitors

Sketch that got started late, the sun finally came out!

Gardening like crazy....To the "tobacco"call of the quail.

I think they must be nesting close by.

Rough sketch for Sunday Sketches that will develop into?

A little spring weather

We will go swamp tramping, with the fair weather dog who would wear shoes, hates the rain and loves to sleep. For Illustration FridayWatercolor Wednesday , Paint Party Friday , Monday Artday & Inspiration Avenue. I think rain must have been on the radar. More spring images here & here.

 Still playing with hellebore flowers these are mixed media on canvas, they are such a representative flower of spring. Rain doesn't seem to slow them up at all!

Mr Rabbit yields

Mr Rabbit had yielded to pressure to help out with Easter preparation. He was aware there might be some negative feedback from his family, watch out to see what happens! I've had rabbits on my mind.......

Green with Jealousy

This is a rework of an older piece posted here & here, fixed a few things and added more depth of color. I think reviewing old pieces can be an interesting learning experience. For Sunday Sketches and Watercolor Wednesdays.

Her Intentions were good

Her Intention to give Mr Bear a bath was a good one she sang:
Soap, soap, soap and towel
Scrub your dirty bear,
Wash his knees will you please?
And do it all with care

Mr Bear got more concerned and very soggy!
