"Lady Bird" - acrylic on aquabord, 16" x 20". Ready to frame, or can be leaned against a wall upon a shelf. Available here and at Artfinder.
A wee bit of malarkey and a pop of spring for Easter Sunday. We've transitioned from friends visiting from afar to family to even more family, so the house is abuzz with activity and late-night board games. An attempt to play Bears vs. Babies helped to reaffirm our love for old standards like Dixit, but I was a bit fascinated with building a manatee in a suit with a torpedo arm to take out the evil land babies.
There is no time for painting with the parade of fabulous visitors, so this fancy bird was completed just before all the shenanigans began. We've been busy needle felting, however, and this bowl of sleeping bunnies made us squeak with delight every time we spied it on the counter. Who doesn't love a bowl of sleeping rabbits?
I am short on sleep but brimming with inspiration this week.
Multiple visits to Flamingo Gardens, a beach walk and a day at the Morikami Museum and Gardens have my pile of potential painting images spilling over. Several lazy movie days and time to read a fabulous fantasy novel have my brain mulling all kinds of new characters to add to the studio menagerie. Julia Cameron would approve of the bounty of artist dates this month has held.
A new month, a full moon, rising temperatures and dates set aside for graduation celebrations are a reminder of change taking place all around. Our little mango tree, planted three years ago when we first moved to Florida, is brimming with tiny mangoes for the first time. And these three unlikely companions (right) held a pose for me as if to point out that anything is possible when spring is in the air. :)
