Art & Garden Time
Wow, can you believe it's already Friday?
I can't...I've had this whole week off from my job, and it's so funny how time flies when you are enjoying yourself isn't it?
Maybe you remember I was taking Christy's on line She Art Workshop.
I can't tell you enough how much I have enjoyed this class!
(don't forget to check out the link on my sidebar)
Until now, I've always been curious but a bit intimidated by canvas and paint.
Christy has really helped me to forget my insecurities and just do it!
This was actually my "first" attempt. It's supposed to be me in Seattle, but I kind of turned out skinny and with red hair. LOL!
I loved being able to tell a story with paint & glue.
It didn't matter to me if it was perfect, it was me living my dream in Seattle and that's the part of the process I enjoyed the most.
These don't really look like blue hydrangeas, but to me, that's what they are, and I love that I could express that on canvas in my own way.
With art, it's not always what other people think, but how you "feel" with the process.
I thought I'd show you my messy art room. It also doubles as a guest room, so I have a big queen bed and chair with ottoman in here as well.
I wish I could spread out more to create, but I am greatful for the space I have for now.
(Yes, that's an almost finished Mimosa in the background) :-o
We also spent some time de-winterizing our outdoor space.
Our palm trees have grown so tall, that I need a ladder now to reach the dead palms.
Yes, I trim the palms myself...I actually enjoy it.
There were so many dead fronds from the cold weather that I really had to trim them back to get to green.
I don't know if you remember, but I showed you a photo of this bird nest in a tree that's across the street from me. It was when the tree didn't have any leaves on it, so I wanted to take a photo of it now with all the green.
I still wonder if it will be repurposed this spring, or if it will just remain there unused.
Well, I'm off to get my hands messy with paint again.
I hope you are spending this weekend with those you love.
Wishing you all a very Happy Easter.
