More spring rain

spring rain

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.

I agree with Janet--love your Spring birdies! I think that Spring will not be coming this year :-(
