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.

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!

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".

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.

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!

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.

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.
