Could Spring be on the Way?

We are dreaming of spring.  Tom has been readying the rocking chairs that go by the pool.  They were chipped paint white.  We decided on fun, bright colors for the new coats of paint.  How happy these will look beside the nice blue water. (dreaming a little again). This one needs the clear coat yet.

This one needs a few more coats.  There are also little side tables that will be refinished. Yankee Candles makes a scent that smells just like suntan lotion.  I think I am going to get some.  Pool season is still two months away which is better than 8 months away when we closed it in October.  It is inching closer!  Have you been dreaming of something nice lately?

Beauty Comes From Within

My Mixed Media picture was finished yesterday.  I changed a few items like making the buds smaller and adding more leaves.  It was fun working with all the different mediums.  

All four sides are painted with this design and you can see a good side view of the poppy buds.  This was done on a 10 X 10 canvas and would add a nice visual element to a wall grouping.

Chairs can be such beautiful pieces of workmanship and there are so many different kinds.  I am drawing and painting a trilogy of chairs from around my house.  I finished the first today. 

Thanks so much for stopping by.
