Springtime!


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!

The old kitty reminds me of Felix, who passed away last summer. Boohoo. They are all lovely, though. We passed the warm weather your way, now it is cooler here! ;(

Enjoy it while it lasts!~
