Spring is Coming

The sun has been shining now for 2 days straight and even though it’s cold at night, the sun is warm. I see signs of Spring coming everywhere now – trees budding, aconites flowering and birds singing loudly in the morning. It has inspired me so much that I completed this little painting:

I am really happy with this painting. I enjoyed painting the lovely loose colourful background with a well defined tree shape. This painting is only 4×4″, and it has worked so well that I am planning to do a much larger version.

I’m currently sitting in my very sunny front room with my laptop writing this. I have a chapter open that I am working on from my book. Editing is easy and hard – very frustrating at times, but rewarding if I stick at it. I’m lucky that I have a good book coach and friends that are supporting me and offering their help. The universe is truly making sure this book gets written. I’m not writing full time now, mostly 2 days a week so I can get some painting done too. I’ve now completed 6 acrylic paintings this year so far, mostly small ones. Here is another new one:

I loved working with the rich colours in this one. I am also really happy with it’s simplicity.

Meanwhile, work goes on here in my studio (and here in the front room), and I’ll have more to share with you next time.

Debs 🙂
