Yesterday, I had a lazy daisy kind of day…
I was at the lake and the weather was very nice!
What a difference a week makes! The photo below on the left was taken last weekend and the photo on the right shows how the beach chairs would NOW be under water!
The sunshine feels wonderful but we don’t need the snow in the mountains to melt too quickly! Flood warnings are now in place…
Oh, the balance of nature… glad I’m not in charge! 😉
Hope you had a lazy daisy day too! What did you do?

Since Mother’s Day is this weekend, I decided to create today’s weird bird in memory of ALL mothers – birds and humans! 😉
Lunches and Brunches…
Recipes old and new,
I “cooked” up this bird…
In memory of you! ❤️
Happy Mother’s Day!

My April Square Project is running into May…
Yet, I’m OK with it – don’t sweat the small stuff, right?! 😉
I finally got my watercolor painting completed that I showed you the other day; you can find its beginnings here: Art As Meditation
Last night I cut it up! Don’t worry, it was intentional:
This time I cut larger squares and circles to add variety to my monthly project. (See A Square Project under my categories on the right of this screen).
Next week, I hope to show you my completed collaged piece.
Until then, I’m going to have fun taking photos of these shapes… they are like a puzzle!
And if they don’t all make it into a collage, perhaps they will become part of something else?!
What would YOU do with them?

I posted this doodle on Instagram last week…
I was playing with the features of a face as a doodle… How many eyes and noses do you see?
And eyebrows, ears and lips?
I see a couple of weird birds…Lol!
How about you?
What do YOU see?
Happy Friday! Cheers! 🙂

WOWZA!! The weekend is here!!
I hope your week has stacked up to be wonderful!
I did this wacky still life of coffee cups in watercolor – paints, pencils and markers.
I have enjoyed sharing some wild fun this week on my blog! Thank you for all your comments, I appreciate them so much! And thanks for taking a look at the blogs I shared with you. There are waaaay more, so watch for future posts!
I have decided to take a week off from blogging to do a little Spring cleaning… Whoa! :-0 Yes, I haven’t totally lost my mind… but I am feeling like I need to have a little time to catch up. 😉
I hope to keep creating art but will be posting only on Instagram as art_jill_kuhn
Wishing you a wonderful week!

Spring!! Can you hear the earth sing?!
I was excited to see these tender green sprouts of chives making an appearance yesterday…
And my lilies can hardly wait for more sunshine so they can stretch out tender stems from a long, cold winter…
Rhubarb is seriously stunning in color and texture, wouldn’t you agree? I can almost taste the Strawberry-Rhubarb Crisp! Yum!
And what about this shiny green moss? It seems to have found a place to grow between these walkway stones!
I can see a bird head, how about you? 😉
Be sure to check out Ali’s blog, The Mindful Gardner
I can almost smell each flower’s scent in Ali’s photos and descriptions! Her passion for gardening is like a sprouting seed after a long cold winter…
One of the things I enjoy about taking online art classes is creating my own assignments from the class.
This one I made by drawing overlapping still life shapes in a 5.5 x 8.5 journal with a Micron pen. Next, I colored the “shapes” with Prismacolor pencils.
It may look rather busy to you but it was very relaxing for me to create.
May you find JOY in the art you create!

I thought I’d change things up a bit for weird bird Wednesday…
And drew a couple of birds, Dr. Seuss style:
Bird 1 and Bird 2…
A Suess hatching at the zoo,
Double fun for you!
I hope your Wednesday is happy times two!
Cheers Friends! 🙂
