Spring is coming...

Fun with a sponge and an orange stick

Spring is coming...
At least I hope it is.
Here in Southwest Florida we have had a cold week.
And when we have a cold week, we all whine.

So I have been thinking Spring.
I am repotting orchids, cleaning the lanai and just generally getting ready
for the warm weather (and our company).
We even cleaned out the garage this week.  I will take advantage of this motivation
as long as I can.

I played with a little negative glazing again this week.
I find it relaxing.  I think I will add some leaves and maybe some splatter


  1. The poppies are just glorious!

  2. The orchids are stunning, love how they appear to glow. HPPF!

  3. MMmmm I want spring! It is warming up here in Ontario but we still have alot of snow to melt.

    These make me long for it. Haha. I actually really love the simplicity of the first one, and coral is my favorite color! But the second one is lovely as well.

  4. Wonderful spring paintings!
    Especially love the orchids with its negative glazing.
    Happy PPF!!

    Happy PPF, Annette x
