Rain Rain Go Away, Come Again Some Other Day!


We have been inundated with over 7 inches of rain in less than a week. I thought you might like to see what flood waters can do in a very short period of time. It is supposed to stop by Monday morning.

This is what I did today!

Today I got back to painting and I took a few pictures along the way. I forgot how much I enjoy it.

An Update on the "Popcorn Tree"




The fragrance on my patio is breathtaking!

Another Side of Me!

 My Great Grandpa's farm in Vermont
Judi, Mark & Cooper Ice Skating.

I am thinking it is time to do some painting again. It has been a while but I remember that I thoroughly enjoyed it. I found some paintings while cleaning out my studio and thought I would share a few.  I have never had an art class so they are indeed Grandma Moses style. They are very primitive but I think they tell a story and they certainly capture my memories so I won't throw them away at least, no saying what the future generation may think of them, LOL.

Spring has arrived!

 Magnolia
 Cherry Tree
Flowering Crab Tree
We have had beautiful weather for the last two weeks and much needed rain the last few days. I took the opportunity to take some pictures of our flowering trees while they were in full bloom. The last picture is of our flowering crab which I dated. It has red buds which will turn into beautiful white flowers in a week or so. I will post another dated picture when that happens. I have posted pictures of it before and am always amazed at how beautiful our "popcorn Tree" is. Have a great weekend everyone!
