Petal Tangle

Getting ready to cut back the euphoria, remembering how vibrant the shades of green were, one of my favorites :)

November Bouquet

November flowers, finding time for painting after a busy season of many other things. A habit to get back to.

Treasure Hunters

Having fun with textures and characters :) I think these two could get into some serious mischief!
More to come......

Garden Lily

The lilies are blooming like crazy and we have finally had rain so wonderful!

 Loving the blooms! Below why I haven't been painting much, the garden and flowers have taken over. The heat has been overwhelming, we have installed a drip system which has been a wonderful time saver and much greener :)

Small, but with lots of attitude

These little characters (quail) are living in my garden, not sure how many are in the clutch. They are speedy! Papa is on the watch sitting all around the garden on the tomato trellis, by the sweet peas and atop the beans. They have also eaten all the baby greens as they sprout, round 3 is covered in remay.
They are such "attitudy" birds. And since you rarely see one alone.....

Warrior Dance

All the green and white and contrasting blues. The colours in early spring are so brilliant! Sweet peas planted today, stormy, greenhouse full of tender plants, studio full of colour!

These characters are up to all sorts of a ruckus! Challenge from Illustration Friday, feels good to stretch.

Strong but fragile

 Spring, bunnies, spring break and a little holiday!
Starting seeds like crazy and enjoying this amazing early warmth, so much to do in the garden!
 Background or no background? I'm thinking I like the watercolour back, what do you think?

Dreaming of water gardens, might just be an urn :)
I would love a little pond for a few water plants + for the birds.....

Noisy Little Mosses

Lichens, mosses and ferns with a few flowers. Lots of mark making and a few weeds! Finally finished something! This has been a slow start to the year.......
