Last day of winter?

 Yesterday was a day of painting and I enjoyed every minute.

And this morning,  I have some cleaning/organizing to do.

I've found tutorials on YouTube from an Australian artist and I've learned several helpful tips from her demonstrations. 

As with everything else, over-thinking is my biggest hurdle.

A warm Spring day

 February 23 and the temperatures will be in the low 80s today. Had my coffee on the porch for the first time this year. It felt good. The birds were singing, here's a list of what the Merlin app heard:

I'm a bit suspicious about the Oriole but I suppose they could be migrating?

 Not much new to share. Today is the anniversary of the attempted coup in Caracas, 1992. I remember everything about that day. But I've posted the story and photos here before so I'll not go into that today.

Painting is improving,  slowly. Getting back into technique and drawing. I'll share one, of snow drops.

January in the rear view mirror

"To be interested solely in technique would be a very superficial thing to me."

Andrew Wyeth

I've been dipping my brushes back into the watercolors and I'm very rusty. Two attempts, two in the trash. But I'm committed to keeping up the effort.

My heart is normal

 Had a cardiac MRI yesterday and received my results this morning. NORMAL!

It's a good day. 

The MRI  procedure was most uncomfortable but the results are worth the discomfort.

Winter reprieve


Blackberry Cobbbler, the angst. Finding the right recipe. Finding the right pan for said recipe. But it is delicious.

Tulip Time


Tulips are such formal flowers and yet a view below the blooms themselves reveals almost abstract shapes.

I love tulips. ⚘️
