Hi Everyone
Hope you're all well!
It's been a crazy few days of weather! I think everyone around the world has been getting some crazy stuff!
We had 4 days of heavy rain. Sunday, a touch of snow. And for the past 3 nights, frost! But, through it all, the trees and plants are loving it!
Mom's "stinky" flowers are coming up. I show them every year. They are so pretty. They aren't in full bloom yet, but they are getting there! I don't know their real name. All I know is, they stink, to keep away unwanted pests! LOL!
I love gardening and yes, I do plant trees and flowers, etc, but I have to admit, I love to just see what Mother Nature wants me to see. So, I am a wild girl at heart!! And, yes, there is dandelions, clover and all types of things growing through my "grass". I don't know what these lovely wild flowers are coming up around my Goddess. Can't wait!
Mr. Gargoyle and Little Crow, are keeping safe under the evergreen tree!
Mrs. Robin, has had her baby, but the little one hasn't peaked his head up yet!
Do you remember this painting?
I thank you all for "seeing" the abstract heart between the crows, but that had to change. Because that is where the wing from the crow was coming around, to hold her close. Hope you like the changes.
"First Date" (12" x 16" canvas)
As I have said in my earlier posts, the next few months are going to be very busy. I'm going to try to post at least once a week! Talk to you all soon!

Hi Everyone!
Happy May!
We've been getting so much rain and the temperatures are cooler than usual.

Remember this painting?
Well, I finished it!
I loved the way it turned out! I got it all set up, to put a metal hanger on the back of it! I started to hammer the nails in and turned it around! "Note to self"... make sure the nails are shorter, than the thickness of the wood!!! Yes, that is right! The nails wet right through! So in the garbage the painting went!!   Errrr......
I will be trying to recreate this painting again!!

As for now, this is the painting I'm working on. Sorry the picture isn't great, but I think you get the idea.
Big Hugs 😊

Hi Everyone!
Hope you're all well!
Spring has for sure sprung around here! It's cooler today, but still very nice! I can't believe the month of April is almost gone!
Now, before I show you my latest painting, as I said in my last post, I feel my art changing again. And, as always, I'm going for it! I always paint from my soul! You have to be true to you!! Many of you have seen my art grow in all different directions. I love getting your reactions too! Some of you might not like something and some might think I'm crazy, but it's all good!

I had a question from one my good blog friends. She asked about why do I put "red lips" on some of my crows! She said it reminded her of those candies you used to get around Halloween, with the red wax lips and everyone would wear them afterwards. I started laughing! LOL!

I have painted many different types of my "Crow Gals".
First I have to explain, when I paint one of my "Crow Gals", she is to me, half woman, half crow. And, I am seeing me in these paintings, because I have such a connection with crows. When I put the red lips on, that is power, strength, that is feminine, that is sexy to me, that is our life force that flows through us. Now, I have to admit, I don't know why, when I paint the face looking forward, why I haven't used red lips? That hasn't "called" to me.

My latest painting is a 12" x 16" canvas.
"Crow Goddess of Transformation"
I know there is a lot going on in this painting, but I hope you "get it", in your own way, what I've created.

I have a sneak peak of my latest piece. When I looked back at my "face on" crow gals, all the eyes were shut. Now I am painting them open! (Like the last one, that is in my banner.) To me, the universe is telling me "I'm ready"!
Sorry about the long post!!
Take care and I will be around soon to say hi!
Big Hugs 😀
