Spring is on it's Way!



Are You Ready For Spring?
Yes, I am too!

At this time of year I am always so grateful for any sunny day and the loss of cloudy, overcast gloomy days.
It's almost amazing how our mood can completely change with sunshine.
I had a group of ladies at Perry Park Golf Resort
who came together to paint dogwood trees and flowers.

What a great time we had. 


We got some pretty abstract backgrounds on these 16" x 20" stretched canvases.
 
 Then we added some branches and then the blossoms.

Carroll County is at the confluence of the Ohio and Kentucky Rivers,which seems to make for great conditions for dogwood trees.
The blooms start to open up in mid to late April and many streets and yards are lined with dogwood trees.

 
Great job ladies.  
Hopefully you had as much fun as I did!
