We are all in this together…Colorful hummingbird art with beautiful words…
Green is one of my favorite colors (aren’t they all…)! There is something about the way the sun illuminates leaves, spears and fronds. It’s a tropical delight here in coastal Florida. The plants are so lush this time of year. The succulent agave stand tall and proud. I wish I could adequately capture Mother Nature’s pallet with my paintbrush. This is a photograph taken exactly as this agave appeared in the bright sunlight….

Spring has past in Florida, but we still have so many birds in our yard that when the breeze blows, you can close your eyes…listen…and still feel it…

I just cannot stop the creative process. Years ago, I was always a little sad when I finished a painting, sold it and sent it off to it’s new home. It meant that it was over. My baby had grown up and moved away. But with today’s digital technology, I can keep creating long after the initial painting is finished. My work lives on in other forms. How cool is that!
I can scan gigantic files of my work and crop out abstracts like this:
Or I can combine the crops and create mirror image work like this one:
It’s all so magical to me. 🙂 And I will not stop!

I went outside today to see if there were any flowers left blooming. In Florida we have a short Winter and then a handful of nice Spring days with bursts of color everywhere. The azaleas…….the bromeliads……and then it all dies………….9 months of HEAT. Not much grows in Summer except the grass and weeds. All of my irises are brown and crispy looking. The lilies look like beef jerky. But this little group of tiny dancers was still celebrating, so I snapped them quickly before the sun was full in the sky.
I will be in my studio painting now for a good long while……..expect some new acrylic work very soon!

And I say…It’s alright! After 2 days of dark, wet and windy weather, I welcome the sun today with open arms. We are having unseasonably rainy and cooler temperatures here in Florida. May is usually hot. Just hot. But the rains have started early. I just hope this isn’t a premonition for Hurricane Season. Let me worship the sun while I can!
