Weather is getting warmer..

Isn't it funny how the weather can change your mood? It is starting to get warmer and you really feel the spring in the air. The air even smells different, sweeter.
When my poppies come up, that will still be awhile. I will usually take pictures..then I will try a watercolor or pastel..did start an oil painting, but never finished. Pastels are one of my favorite mediums. Acrylics are fun and I have done primitive winter scenes in them..Some say acrylics look plastic, but I don't see them that way..one thing I really enjoy about acrylics, they dry fast. I think that gave a hint about me...impatient, something I am working on. One thing about Maine, it teaches patience, you never can count on the seasons being normal.
May you all have a very productive day..just remember, no matter what you are doing, it is important.

Till next time, keep looking up.

Poppies are one of my favorites. When I lived in California we had them all over. I used to look forward to the first bloom!

I grew up on a tropical island & it used to be just rain or shine. I love the 4 seasons, with the changing sceneries & colours! In Tokyo, it's cherry blossoms season & when the wind bows, it's like pink rain. Thank you Rosebud for visiting - I've had fun-filled productive days!

Spring is in the air! And, down here in MA, we got snow over night. It's supposed to be 55 degrees today!
