I just love Winsor and Newton’s Opera Rose! Such a brilliant pink – a perfect color to paint my flowering crabapple in watercolor that I drew previously here.
I tried to paint it looser and added a few splatters at the end.
Now, our second crabapple tree in our yard is blooming… with all the rain we had this Spring, it is “buzzing” with new growth! I have never seen this tree so full of blossoms.
I have a new subject to paint. YAY!

There is nothing crabby about this Crabapple tree! It blooms the most gorgeous colors every Spring!
I decided to try painting some of the blossoms in watercolor… yet was only able to get a sketch done today.
I’m going to try painting this one looser… hope you check back in next week to see how I do!
Happy Mother’s Day to ALL mothers – furry or human!

My hubby gave me an Easter bouquet with pink Phlox which got me thinking about flocks of birds…
Imaginary birds that is!
I love the “phlox” in this photo too:
Happy Weird Bird Wednesday! I hope this gives you a smile today!

As many of you may know by now, I LOVE flowers!! When I started this collage, I had an idea but didn’t know how I was going to create it…
And so I went with the flow of things. I kind of like the combo of paper collage and watercolor.
Who makes YOU bloom in your life and art?! I hope you will share it with me!

Perhaps you remember this doodle I recently started in my art journal, you can find it here.
I am please to say that it is finished!
It is in my 5.5 x 7.5 inch art journal. I used Micron pens on 140 lb hot press watercolor paper.
My husband gave me this beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers this week…
I now have a bouquet of inspiration to begin a new doodle!
May your day bloom with happiness!
