Spring...wonderful !

We've been enjoying our first couple of warm, Spring days . Snowdrops and crocuses are growing in the garden. It's wonderful !

I have been painting these wooden hens, Jan kindly cut out the wooden triangular shapes, and I have painted them. They are for a Spring / Easter market that is coming up soon.

Bought some mini daffs and tulips, have been doing some colourful acrylic sketches from them.

Went for a healthy walk with a friend today while our daughters were at their dance class. We walked straight into a cafe though ! Woops! We ate a cream bun each called "Semla" and then felt very slightly guilty afterwards !
Don't tell anyone !!

Snow melting, Spring on the horizon !

Searching for colour, I bought a sweet little collection of primulas and did a large acrylic study of them.
I also started an acrylic of my youngest asleep with the cat on the sofa ! They often snuggle up together ( his name is Snuggles !)
I feel happier this week, I think it's the painting therapy ! Also the fact that we've had + degrees and
the snow is melting. It does my heart good to see green grass poking through the white snow !
