Spring Blossoms

The flowering trees are looking quite stunning around here as of late.  Spring is definitely popping it's head up around every corner I take, whether walking the pups or going on a leisurely bike ride. 

Above is a painting of mine inspired by some photos I snapped over the weekend.  I'm very pleased at how it turned out and am delighted to share it with you.

It's been quite a busy week here, between continual preparations for my upcoming art show and completing a 14-card custom order (each one hand painted).  I was up until after midnight last night but happy to say it's packaged up and ready to be shipped out today. Yeah!

So, how is Spring making it's appearance in your cozy, little town? :)

I'm submitting this for PPF this week.  For more wonderful art and fun, make sure to visit here.
