It's a Friday in April and the sun is shining...

 This
came
together
today.
This took
MANY
twists and turns.
With my own painted papers,
old papers,
and lots of smooshing of paint
and
charcoal,
it turned out so different
and
so
surprisingly,
WONDERFUL,
not as planned...
PER USUAL!


 We have been watching this pair of house finches for over a month now.




 This is their 4th or 5th final nest.




 They are so haphazard and their funky nests would just blow away, or scatter...




There is one egg so far...to be continued...and I should add that we have been getting laughs from inside, watching their antics!

WHILE ONE LARGE PAINTING WAS drying between stages...

 This little threesome
started out like this.




 Then...
on to this




 Here is where I stopped on one




 And then...
made a stop again




And a third!

I did these while a larger
(completely different) painting
was drying on it's easel.
Not done with that yet,
but will show you when I am.

EASTER THOUGHTS...

When
one writes on herbal stained
papers...
the entire room becomes
AROMATIC.
Walking away,
it remains
on your
fingers and hands...
and can
stir up
beautiful
MEMORIES
and
TIMES.


A RAINY DAY ON EASTER SUNDAY...

HAPPY EASTER!!!

A RAINY DAY ON A SATURDAY in APRIL...

 Layers, upon layers,
until the right "things" show up!




 More layers of paint and papers,
old and new..
Then
POW
there she stops!




 These were all so fun!
Never really
EASY.
But they appear that way to me
when finished.
Oh how I LOVE
ABSTRACT and COLLAGE
all mixed up together...
brewing and bubbling to create a fine
STEW of BEAUTY!

THE FIRST WEDNESDAY AFTER APRIL FOOLS DAY...

 What to do with all that happiness?
Even if you only have a little bit of happiness?
Even if you hardly have any happiness?
SHARE




 I thought this would make a cute little card for someone!?






While at the drawing board...
I had to stick in a face, it's been a long while for me
and I always miss them.
And I think...
can I still paint a face?
It's just not always easy,
even when you've done this so many times.

HAPPY APRIL ONE OF 2017...

 Santa Fe-ish!





It started out like this and was a larger piece that I just couldn't make work...
ergo...
I cut it up and made the piece at the top,
THE ONE!
