Yellow Flowering Trees in SWFL

 I absolutely love the Tabebuia trees that are blooming now.  Gorgeous yellow flowers against a bright blue sky.  I just had to try and paint one from memory.

Finding/Making time to be creative

A couple of weeks ago, my husband came with me to do some grocery shopping.  We always have fresh flowers on our kitchen table.  It was his "job" to select some flowers.  He chose combo of red and yellow roses - perfect!

I used them as inspiration for a little 6x8 painting (acrylic)

War in Ukraine

 I cannot seem to stop thinking about the war going on in Ukraine.  I do not understand why this is happening.  My heart goes out to those fleeing, those staying, those fighting, those that have died.  It's such a senseless tragedy.
