Spring is Coming (Right? Soon? Glimpses…)

The calendar doesn’t lie. So I know Spring is officially here. And yet, it is still pretty cool (some days, cold) and often does not feel very much like I EXPECT spring to feel. 

I’m ready. Spring always lifts my spirits. I need that. I’m feeling rather down, and since I know better than to “opine” or “pontificate” when I am feeling like this, I’ll just post a few of my recent watercolor art pieces, and at least will feel like I’m a bit caught up with blog postings.

This Goose was fun and easy.

The Eastern Bluebird is the state bird of Missouri (I miss our Missouri woods).

The last two posted here are inspired by a book by Matthew Palmer,  Ready to Paint in 30 Minutes: Animals in Watercolour. They were fun, quick and easy (admittedly, they look like they were quick and easy, but that’s okay sometimes). I chose these animals because they remind me of Spring and of Easter.

Little Lamb

Little Bunny

Lastly, I’ll just mention a new daily devotional that I am enjoying. I actually used this one some time back but am trying it again. It’s called “First 15” and is available in an app and/or by daily emails. 

It is particularly inspiring to me right now because I am listening to it (an option) with air pods each morning, while I am holding a hot pack on my eyes (treatment for an eyelid condition that prompted a doctor visit that resulted in an easy treatment plan). So, the quiet and darkness while the hot pack is on my eyes is actually enjoyable for me as I relax and listen to the podcast.

So glad to see you posting again, I've missed your watercolors and messages of faith. I pray that you and your family have been healthy (sorry to hear about your eye problems) and safe.
