The first brave flowers to come out of hiding! Matt took this picture on our warm weekend stroll, they were such a fresh and happy sight! It felt like it had been AGES since I'd seen a crocus. Isn't it funny how every time the seasons change, grown-ups and children and animals too all become so excited, as if this really is the very first time winter has ever changed to spring?

"Spring is here again. Spring is the earth's birthday. It comes again and again and again."

-Alice and Martin Provensen, A Book of Seasons, 1976

Little Alphabet

Monday, March 9, 2009

Here is a very little alphabet I painted in between projects, in a slice of time before going to bed. The paintings were barely an inch wide before scanning them! I am very happy with how crabby monsieur chat turned out to be, especially in the letter "A". I also discovered the beautiful lacy voice of Montreal-based "Coeur De Pirate" (Béatrice Martin) around the time I was painting these. Another note: I forgot all about daylight savings time! Spring ahead! I am now an hour behind :P

Good morning to you! It's been hard to stop back at the blog, I've been b-u-s-y in the studio with final art. I'd love to post some of it soon. Until then, I'll be here drawing and painting and fetching (with Serif! he has learned how to fetch). Hope all's well ♥
