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!

When I was at the lake last weekend, I noticed a woodpecker in this tree – tap, tap, tapping away:
After much research, I think that it is a Juvenile Downey Woodpecker because it still has a bright red cap. And since today is Mother’s Day, I thought it was perfect to include him!
Today is also, “Draw A Bird” day on WordPress which is being hosted by the very talented, Laura at Create Art Everyday. Be sure to check out her blog as she will be compiling a list of all the participants for this month’s challenge! Thanks Laura!
I decided to “Collage A Bird” which really started with a drawing, using papers that I painted in watercolor:
As I was walking around the area at the lake, I noticed that the ferns were starting to unfurl and the wild strawberries were waking up in the warm spring sunshine too:
And here is a view of the lake – doesn’t it look peaceful?!
Wishing you a Sunny Sunday!
Enjoy your day, friends…. 🙂
