Nine Squares

The beginning of a new work.
I took 9- 12 inch square canvases.
Applied brown & magenta background.
Layered burnt sienna, ocher, barn red and turquoise over.
With a palette knife.
Added the start of trees.
Monday I will see where this takes me.

                         Have a blessed Easter week end.

Collage for a day

Spent Wednesday with the paper scraps.
Today I will paint in the morning.
Clean the last of the flower beds this afternoon.
Then it will rain for another week.
What a spring.

Can you tell I like trees, birds and the outdoors.
I really like the last one with the yellows.
Must remind me of the sun we don't get to see much of.

Hope springs eternal.

Somewhere out there in the cold rainy day
there is a garden waiting to happen.
Just maybe not this year.
