The paintings are up..

I worked the whole day, in between doing other things, on my paintings..On the Icon, I even put Swarovski crystals in certain places. This is my first try at an Icon, the next will be in oil/acrylic and on wood.
My angel is call "Spring angel" and she is sending you all her gift of flowers.
When you see your flowers bloom, be thankful..What beauty and happiness they bring.
You know people always want green lawns and kill all the dandelions. I think they have a beauty about them and may I say, they can be used for a wonderful wine..the early greens are good to eat..Loved picking bouquets for my mother, as a child..So when you see those yellow blossoms, take a good look at them..They are a beautiful flower and worthy of painting.

Till next time, keep looking up.

I love your springtime angel - so pretty! As for dandilions, we have tons of them, but we also have wild bunnies that consider them like a "salad bar" delicacy. We would never think of trying to get rid of our dandilions.

Besides, they're not weeds...they're wild flowers. It's all a question of perspective :o)

I like dandelions, too... and most wildflowers, really. Natural beauty > engineered beauty! :D

Lovely paintings! & yes the poor dandeloins are often overlooked (& mowed down!). Your post has inspired me to take more notice of them! Thanks :)
