Flowering Branches

Flowers for Friday! While taking pictures of new growth last Monday my eyes wandered up to these. I took a bunch of shots, just think they're so pretty. I saw them again this week, they've all bloomed and faded, so glad I caught them in their prime.

Peaceful Hopeful

I went looking for these yesterday, I noticed them on my walk couple days ago. I had to search a couple of streets as I couldn't remember their exact location. I've always liked them, I think they're called snowdrops?
Rain for the next few days. I sure hope it doesn't turn to snow!

Buds!

The forecast promised sun for today, by the time I got out it was covered with clouds. :( Needless to say I was disappointed but am delighted these pictures turned out!

An Angel to Watch Over

I place the angel on the window sill so the light can show the intricate pattern on the wing. The photo doesn't show it well but the pattern is actually a little bit shiny, adding just that little bit of magic to this piece. Angel is 9" x 4".

Send Me An Angel

I am making 2 angels at the moment. They will be sent to 2 families with our warmest regards. :)

Sunny Little Cloud

A happy looking cloud I just finished last night! An old friend is expecting a baby in March and had asked me to create something for the baby's room. Originally I thought a painting would be nice but could not come up with an idea. I came to making this cloud as inspired by all those cute looking clouds out there and think it's appropriate for the little one's room. I hope it is well received.

I Spy New Growth

Yikes! I can't recall noticing plant growth this early in the year, not sure if this is a good thing but boy am I glad to see them, as this means Spring has sprung!

New Year New Hat

Last year I made myself a hat from Patons Classic Wool. I like it so much it's the only hat I wore all winter so... when Boxing Week sale came around at Michaels I bought more of the same yarn in different colors. I thought I'd use more than one color and decided to have solid top and colorful trim. Check out the finished hat below, my first project for 2010!

Light on Dark & Dark on Light

I admit after posting several entries you begin to wonder what title should I give this one? It deemed appropriate after a closer look at both pictures. I can't wait to see buds on the branches!On another bright note, I woke up this morning to a delightful comment on my last post. Thank you all for commenting on my blog but above all, Thank you from the bottom of my heart for stopping by.

The New Year

Hello 2010! I can't believe it's here! I'm looking forward to learning many new things. I had a good rest over the Holidays and spent some time reflecting, overall I had a great creative year and... I made 100 posts on my blog! Honestly I didn't think I'd get this far but I feel pretty good about it and am glad to be able to share my paintings and pictures with you. :)

I took a break from painting in December and indulged myself with some crochet. I made myself a new pair of warm mitts, see below my modelling debut.
They're flip top mittens! It's my third pair but the most colorful of them all. Here's to The New Year, may it be filled with many happy and wonderful discoveries!
