Where Did March Go?

It is April already and I am in a bit of a funk. While I am loving the warmer temps and having windows and sliding doors open, I am unable to get any art done. I think my muse is playing on the tire swing in the back yard, or maybe catching frogs in the creek.

We had the family here yesterday for an Easter egg hunt and a mid afternoon meal. It was nice to have them all together.

I am going to my sister's house again today and will stay until Thursday. Then on Friday I think I have all three girls. They are on Spring break this week. I have some deadlines to meet so will take some of my art projects with me and hope to get some of them done or at least roughed out.

One of the projects I am involved in is colored mandalas. I need six of them and only have one done. They are due by the 15th, so they are my first priority. I am also participating in an ATC exchange in which the theme is Bob Dylan lyrics. I couldn't help myself - I had to get in on this one. They aren't due until May 24th so I have a bit of time to decide which lyrics I will choose and how I will sketch the cards to match them.

Meanwhile, I got outside yesterday with the camera and found a few interesting things to take pix of. Here they are:

A custom bench the hubster made for a customer.

A cute pair of boots I found at a second hand store for the little one. She loves them.

Pretty tulip beginnings.

Pretty Spring color in the front garden.

Traditional Easter Lilies on the dining room table. They smell fantastic!

I am not sure I will be posting while at my sister's house, but I will try. I will surely share any art I get done while there.

Until then,



  1. Happy Easter, Vicki! Hope you will find a lot of things to draw soon.

  2. Lovely spring photos. Thanks for sharing them.

  3. Your photos are beautiful, as always! hugs, nancy

  4. Nice photos. Hope your muse kicks in with a vengeance. You know how they say if spring comes in like a lamb it will go out like a lion. Hope the same happens with your art.
