It is almost Spring Time....

This is just a small piece on canvas..I painted it for my Mom's Birthday..She turned 86....She loves the trees blooming in the spring...So I tried to paint one for her..She loved it and said it was now her tree..So it may not be perfect but to my Mom it was..That is what counts....It now hangs on her wall between pictures of her cat and dog...LOL...
The weather here is wonderful...Warm, take your shoes off and walk in the cool grass...Birds flying, flowers blooming and trees waking up and stretching their arms.. Spring Time......
Enjoy the weekend.

Hi Katelen! So good to see you. Hope your Mom is doing good. Tell her I said HAPPY BIRTHDAY AND MANY MORE!! You are such a great daughter and your Mom must be so proud of you. Well it's cold here and it rained all day yesterday and the world is changing rapidly, so we must enjoy each day and be thankful for what we have. Take care Katelen and again HB to your dear Mom.
PS: I love your tree and the colors are striking.

This is lovely, I love the colors you chose. Your weather does sound wonderful. I have a gray day with two feet of snow in my yard.

First, congratulations with your mothers birthday. I love the painting, the red that glows between the shadows of the tree.
Today we finally had a lovely spring day, with delightful sunshine. :-) But not yet warm. But it's coming....
Sweet greetz!

The painting is wonderful. I hope you Mother is feeling better.

I am jealous that you have warm weather. It is still a cold 38 degrees. rainy and my daffodils are getting hammered.

Your Mom is too cute. I love how this painting hangs between the dog and the cat.

We had wonderful warm weather last week with birds galore singing. It really lifts the mood, doesn't it.

Wonderful tree painting. The colors are rich and the tree is strong.

wishing you a warm week.
