A Studio Day Inspired by Springtime

My home and life is where I draw inspiration from. This past weekend, the beautiful temperatures and warm sunshine pulled me outside to work on my flower beds. It will take a few more months for them to get here. This is what they look like right now. With the company of my furry friends I worked hard to clean things up and let the little green shoots that are popping up see the sunshine too.
Then onto getting some of the driveway out of the edges of the grass. This is one job that is too much for one person. I tried to get Katie to help, no luck there and Brian was off to VT for spring skiing. My hamstrings were so sore from all this work, but the promise of the blooms to come and soft green grass to walk barefoot in is well worth it.
Yesterday was a full day at the studio. I had it in my mind to do a four season series of trees and started this winter one a while back. When I went to work on it yesterday I couldn't bring myself to think of any more winter. So I started to transform it.
Adding some spring greens.
And bright blue skies.
With the temperatures back to normal and the grey skies outside, it was a good day to be inside my bright cheerful studio.

I'm trying to get some new pieces to bring to Art and Soul Gallery in Ogunquit, ME. They will be reopening next month on weekends.
I was working on this painting "peace within" and added this peace symbol, but decide I like it better with just the word peace.
Today I'll be heading back to have a little more painting time, then teaching my classes, and keeping the inspiration of more sunny spring days to fuel my soul on this wet rainy day.
May sunshine fill your heart with love!
