Now here you are experimenting, and I love it!

I can't tell you how much I am looking forward to flowering gardens at the moment.

Billie Crain said...

ahhhhhh....i feel Spring in the air when i look at these. really lovely, Anita and done with your bum arm, too. what a trooper you are.:)

Jeanette said...

I think this is the first time I've seen anything by you in coloured pencil. These are lovely and make me long for warmth and green.

Teresa Mallen said...

Well woo-hoo, my favourite medium!! :-) Thanks for the burst of spring...okay, around here our borders don't look this full and lush until summer...thank goodness I like snow!

Stacy said...

As if I wasn't already dreaming of spring, you had to post these colorful works and really tease me. I won't see colors like this here until May.

Annie said...

These are lovely Anita - beautiful colours! I hope your shoulder is better, by the way.

Lisa Lorenz said...

Beautiful! Is your shoulder better? Its cool here in Florida-- I think there is ANOTHER cold front coming through this weekend--- auuuugh! I want spring!

Robyn - these were fun - thinking of adapting from these, working larger, more abstract.

Billie - had to use bum arm, totally useless with my left.

Jeanette - we did Cindy Brunk's CP class together a long time ago.

Teresa - a dash of hope of spring goes a long way! The leaves are peaking out here now.

Stacy - we have bushes covered in yellow flowers the colour of primroses here at the moment. Amazing how a little colour goes a very long way to reviving winter spirits.

Annie - every day a little better. Trying not to overdo it too much. Thank you for good wishes.

Lisa! - I'm still working on getting as much colour into my work as you do.

Terri - I heard the weather was going to be bad your way. Was hoping to be home myself next week so keeping an eye on the weather.

Hi Anita, this is my first time visiting your blog. You are among the artists in our travelling sketchbook, and I have to say I am thrilled that you will be adding art to my book! You are an amazing artist. And just for the record, I think your chair painting looks great just the way it is. Love the flower borders, too. Glad to meet you.

Anita said...

Blumoon - you've been missed! Hope all is well with you.

Katie Jane - HI! I'm really looking forward to the sketchbook exchange. Lovely to meet you too!
