A Vase of Sunshine
watercolor 16 x 20
This week was a struggle. These daffodils caused me some trouble. I saved these guys from a snow storm a week or so ago. I brought them in and put them in my favorite German crock. They were so pretty I decided to photograph them and then paint them. I had the hardest time figuring out my pallet. This is actually my second attempt. The first one I used a paint that was too opaque. So on try two I went with a much more transparent yellow. I'm glad they're finished:) They did turn out pretty sunny, so I guess I'm happy with them in the end.
Steven doesn't have a painting yet, he's a little under the weather. Hopefully tomorrow or sometime this week.
I am happy to report that Brian took a few days off this week and the wallpaper is down, Yay! We ended up renting a steamer, so worth the $20!! I have the walls patched and I will be priming them this week, in between taking care of sick babies.
We took advantage of the good weather and worked on the backyard also. We weeded the beds and Brian mulched and mowed. It's starting to shape up. I am also thrilled that two hydrangeas that we had in pots are actually starting to bud. Hopefully they will bloom this year. Spring is in the Air!!!
See everyone next Monday.
