May is on it's way!

Azaleas, rhododendrens, poppies, fritilaria, pansies, daffodils, tulips, bluebell-type bulbs (not sure what they are, but have a ga-jillion in my yard. The apple tree is in full bloom. Lilacs are starting to open.

Beautiful, sunny morning (so far) ... time to go ride my new bike! I'll post some pix in a while.

What the future may bring!

Been playing with some art supplies. Drawing, coloring with my Prismacolor pencils, journaling. Enjoying the time with paper.

Tony (son-in-law) came over yesterday. He is interviewing at this very minute for a job at the Port in Bremerton. We practiced interviewing ~ he is very qualified for this job! Exciting.

When this comes through we'll have our daughter and grandchildren so close by! No more missing those important things ... learning to crawl, easter egg hunts, concerts at school, track meets ... :)

some of my ArtFest products ..

My making paintings out of pictures ... sucked.
notes to & from myself ... great techniques ... had to teach myself the journaling part. My housemates helped. I overthink it.

ArtFest was great

We had a fun time. We laughed, we drank, we made art. Met new people. Learned new techniques. (I need to upload my photos ... I seem to forget to use my camera! Silly me!)

Now I've signed up for Carla Sonheim's "art of silliness" online workshop. Draw, be silly, have fun. That's a good thing! What a wonderful teacher she is. What a positive force.
