I don't know about your neck of the woods, but here in Wisconsin it's starting to feel like spring will never come. It's day after day of rainy/snowy/gloomy weather. Yuck! Poor Amelia wants to wear her spring jacket, but I keep telling her to put her winter one on. I have hardly done anything in my garden. Really though, I shouldn't be complaining, considering what the people in the south are having to go through. What a mess between so many tornadoes and flooding. Pretty scary weather.
I did get the commission/job that I talked about in my previous post. I turned in my finished piece yesterday. I hope they like it. It is for a local event this summer. It was a wonderful learning experience to say the least, but I'm glad to be finished. After working on the commission over the last few weeks, I have so many ideas and things that I want to work on of my own. I did the little birdies above yesterday. It's a small piece for me, on a 8x10 piece of watercolor paper. I was so happy to be finished with my previous painting, I wanted to do a piece that required very little thinking and a lot of just going with the flow. It has lots of nice spring colors that I'm not finding outside my window yet.
