It feels like springtime in Missouri this weekend. I just finished up 3 paintings today! They all have a "springtime" theme.
The first one is a cute old "grandpa kitty" enjoying the basket of tulips. He just looks like one of those 15+ year old kitties we have hanging around sometimes, doesn't he? The basket is made from very old sheet music of a song entitled "Merry May".
The second one is a sweet angel holding a spring lamb. This one has a crackle effect on the background with lots of antiquing.
The third one is three little kitties chasing butterflies. I stamped the words "jump for joy" above the collaged butterflies.
It has been in the 70's here the past couple of days. I found some crocuses blooming in my yard today. I can tell the pollen is out in full force---I can't stop sneezing! Have a wonderful rest of the weekend!
I am a self taught artist who has always enjoyed creating anything from a flower garden to the perfect meal. Now that my children, (ages 23, 26, and 27) are all grown up, I have more time to create! I also work 4 days a week during the school year with special needs preschoolers--which I dearly love! The children in my life inspire many of my paintings.
