SPRING!


With the back yard full of robins, snowdrops and crocuses appearing, daffodils pushing up, and Easter just around the corner, I had to take a break from Halloween (just a quick one, I promise!) to paint this enchanting little garden faerie, listing this evening on eBay. Her wings are coated with transparent glitter paint, so she really sparkles in the sunlight. :)

The Tarot Table I've been promising is still on it's way (actually, the second table - the first one having gone to a collector before I could list it!) But as usual, I'm running a bit behind schedule....John is not yet able to drive, so I'm alternating painting, housekeeping, errands, and driving to all the post surgery tests and doctors' appointments. He's doing splendidly though, moving easier and walking a bit further each day. In no time at all, I won't be able to keep up with him!

The next couple of days will be spent working on commissions, but I hope to have a few new Halloween pieces completed by early next week, so stay tuned....

In the meantime, I'm celebrating St Patrick's Day by setting aside the paints for the evening, getting out the knitting, and putting my feet up for a couple of hours. I may even get REALLY wild and pour a glass of red wine....

I know, I'm getting old, hehe.

Until next time, Happy St Patty's and Happy SPRING!
