Flower of the day – Pansy

Vibrant, velvety, bright and beautiful Pansies



A house on the hill

I am so into watercolor flowers these days – learning new techniques, practicing, and posting!! Well sometime ago I painted some more and then thought of adding a background – a nice little house on the hill. In the end, I thought my lil’ house actually stole the show. Don’t we all wish for a sweet little house like that tucked away somewhere among the hills and meadows of lavender and tulips and what have you? I know I do!


Weekly Photo Challenge – Smile



Spring is here in full bloom and so are these minuscule wildflowers, blanketing the surface of earth and bringing a smile on my face every time I head out for a walk!

There’s just something about them – what is it? Is it their fragility or their vibrant hues…but oh! they look so vulnerable and beautiful.


As I step out, I always pause and look out for them….

They never fail to light up my face and brighten my day!!!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Favorite place

Favorite Place

My paint palette

This is my favorite place, my happy place – my palette of colors, sometimes acrylic but mostly watercolors in bright greens and blues and lots of burning oranges and crimsons. It is a happy colorful place where things happen – blobs give way to shapes and forms and sometimes an entire garden of poppies and roses come to life. It’s a place where I lose track of time, a place I want to stay for just one more minute!
