cinco de mayo

Celebrating Cinco de Mayo here … and my birthday.

Plus, I decided to share my birthday with Lily and Luna. We were told they were born “in the spring” when we got them so we decided to lump everyone’s birthday into one day.

I don’t mind sharing my day with these two sweethearts ☺

more blooms

Just finished up inking some more flowers that I started last week.

Spent a lot of time working in the yard over the weekend.

I love spring time!! My sore aching back does not!

Just a few doodles I made. I’ve got flowers on the brain again!

These are small…approximately 2.5” x 5.5”…just trying to use up some scrap watercolor paper.

Linking up with Paint Party Friday–please be sure to visit!

I started out using junk mail but then incorporated some doodles and old painting scraps, too.

more drawings for my novel

More illustrations for my book.

I’ll give you a little hint about this page. My character’s name is Joey and she loves 3 things: her Grandma Josephine, pancakes for breakfast and Mondays!

A scene reflected in the bathroom mirror.

flower collage cards

A few weeks back, I saw a wonderful idea for collage flowers on Stefanie’s blog.

Now I have a few scraps of paper (more like a few hundred!!) lying about, so I made up some flowers and turned them into birthday cards.

It’s a fun way to use up leftover paper!

painted sticks

Over the weekend, I painted the sticks I “plant” in the gardens. I just love the extra color in the back yard.

I always add a few extra around the bird baths. The birds really like to perch there. Especially when the baths are full and they have to wait their turn.

Here’s a quick doodle of a large pot. We call it “Big Head” because, well, you know. I always grow chives in this pot. It’s perfect, don’t you think?

Check out a photo of my painted sticks.

coneflowers, salvia and marigolds

While I’m waiting for the REAL flowers to bloom, I painted these from some silk flowers I keep around for reference.
