I woke up to a most beautiful day and went straight outside and started painting. The painting morphed several times into different subjects until it finally showed its true colors. I knew it was right when my heart felt light and happy but also realized the sadness involved. When I could sense God weeping for his only Son that he sacrificed for us so that we could have eternal life.
After I was happy with the background I laid this little twig against the painting. I liked the way it looked but didn’t want to attach it to the painting. The little twig is a dogwood tree that I tried to transplant from my son’s yard to mine. It was never happy after being moved. My husband thought I had told him to chop it down and after he did I felt so sad about the little dogwood. So I am thrilled that I was able to use in my painting after all. I laid it against the painting and painted the shadow of it.
It was so beautiful outside, I was inspired by all of the sun, greenery and bits of pink flowers that I could see.
These are close ups of the painting since they are a little difficult to see in the large picture.
The canvas which is actually a 27 x 23 piece of plywood. I leaned it against an old lawn chair because I knew I would be using a waterbottle to spray it as I worked on it.
This may be available in my Etsy Shop later. I hope you all have/had a fabulous, grateful and thought provoking Easter Sunday.

This is a pair of dragonfly earrings that I recently made. I have neglected my Etsy shop for quite some time now so I decided to get back to it again. I will be posting more in the days to come.

I saw this in a magazine at the doctor’s office. I don’t remember the name of the magazine but I think it was the one with a photo of Michelle Obama sitting at a picnic table full of produce. I don’t have the exact recipe of course but this is the jist of it:
Fresh green beans, trimmed.
Onion,diced or sliced.
Peaches or Nectarines, diced.
Carmalize the onion in olive oil. Then throw in the green beans until they soften, then the fruit. Plate and squeeze some lime juice on it. It was wonderful.

I was out just shooting in the backyard the other day and threw this scarf in the tree then noticed that it had taken on the shape of an angel. Then I took a fairy brush made by Malinaoakley/deviantART and made it look like a angel/fairy whichever.

I shot this today while sitting out in the beautiful weather on a great bench under my cute little tree that I planted a few years ago. I love my trees.

Leave me be, please just leave me to wallow by the fire in my misery. I saw no squirrels, no raccoons, not even a chipmonk today. I must rest now. Bid me adieu I pray.
