Spring Deer

Thursday we had a snow storm. I hope our little ladybug we saw on Wed. found a warm place to stay out of the storm. Today, Saturday, I saw 3 large female deer run through our front yard. They came and were gone so fast. Running north. They were very fast runners. My daughter kept asking," Where were the deer going?" I hope it was someplace where they could find some food. It was much warmer with about 1/2 of the snow melted.

We played outside in the snow and built a snow bear, instead of a snowman. We also built a snow castle by packing snow into pails and dumping them out to make the walls.

I painted this little picture of my girls floating away on a balloon with pink rabbit. Imagine what fun adventures they will find. Oh, to be free to go travel anywhere you wanted to go explore.

1st Ladybug of Spring!!

Guess What?? We found our 1st Ladybug of Spring today!! My 5 year old was digging in the dirt under the evergreen tree when she found a ladybug. she was a very bright deep red with three small black dots on each wing. She was a friendly little lady and allowed us to hold her in our hand while the ladybug walked up and down our fingers. The ladybug visited with us for about 10 minutes and then took flight and was gone last seen flying east.

When we came inside everyone drew pictures of our ladybug friend. The girls were excited about going outside tomorrow to see if we can find the ladybug in our yard again. It was only about 40 degrees and we had a light snow this morning but it melted by lunchtime.

Valerie Floral

I made up this lovely floral design last night. I'm trying to make some more sophisticated designs with softer colors. I've been told that some of my color choices are too bright. Do you like this design with the little bird added as a touch of whimsy? The design is called Valerie after my cousin Valerie Sue Ewoldt.

I like these flowers so much I have started a watercolor painting on a full sheet of printing paper something like 3ft x 2ft size. I want to brighten up my kitchen with this design as a painting.
All the Best,

Baby Bunny

I drew this little baby bunny the other night just because she was so cute. She reminds me of the little baby bunny that I caught and held in my garden so many years ago. I hope you like her too. Here is the link

I had been thinking about making a frog two days ago and then yesterday I had a special request for a frog design. I made this funny little tree frog on the left. It's goofy smile makes me smile too. Well it turned out that they wanted a common green frog (on right) so see which one you like best. I am also offering 2 inch thank you stickers that etsy shops can place in their orders. Any design can be made into these 2 inch circles.

Today I finished this design I had been working on of peacock feathers. When I was little, my family went to Minnesota to visit Rodger (one of our relations) who had a pet farm. He had like over 25 types of animals from rabbits to goats to chickens. He even had peacocks and gave us some feathers to take home. The feathers were so beautiful. I hope you like these feathers as much as I do.
Best Wishes,

Lucky Bear

I painted this cute little bear the other day. My 2 yr old daughter was watching me draw him while she was playing. I erased the face many times until she said yes that she liked the bear. I would ask her, "Do you like this bear?" She said, "No" quite a few times until I got it right. It's nice to have such an honest critic.
This bear design is the 80th item in my shop. My goal is to make one new item a day.
Best Wishes,
