NEW SPRING PAINTINGS!


I am thinking spring even though we got 3 inches of snow here last night. It is almost all melted already this afternoon! I have been very busy with my paintings, staying up way too late! The first one is a little 4"X5" stretched canvas of a little girl with an armload of chicks. The words "peep...peep...peep..." continue all around the sides.

The second one is a naughty kitty checking on the progress of a nest of eggs. This is a 6"X6" deep sided stretched canvas. It has the words "Just Peeking...Honest...Just Peeking" written along the sides.

The last group is three 6"X6" flat canvas panels that actually coordinate together but are sold separately. They have lots of bright colors and heavy textures. The dresses remind me of some that my sisters and I had when we were little. I think my mom made them and they had little matching purses with golden cords. Mine was orange with mod flowers. Momma made many of our outfits when we were little. Sometimes she would even make jumpers or something out of of her old wool skirts. They were really itchy! Have a nice week everyone!

Love the face on the cat peeking at the nest. They are all so darling. By the way, all of your dresses were orange flowered and I did make them.

Forgot to say that the girl with the chicks reminds me of me gathering them up for grandma.
