One of the things I like most about myself is my ability to completely ignore the things that I can’t stand. Like sleet and snow, for example. Some might call it denial, I prefer to think of it as selective observance.
Yesterday, while at home because the campus where I work closed due to the weather, I sat by the warm wood stove and looked through gardening magazines, happily imagining that spring had arrived. In honor of the springtime in my mind, I started painting some pretty, warm weather pictures.
The birdie on the left is the finished product that I showed in progress here, and the iris-to-be on the right was started yesterday. These are both painted in acrylic on small squares of clayboard, something new I’m playing with. It’s been fun and it gives me something else to shop for at the art supply store.
