Fresh warm breezes, gaily chirping birds, flowers (and weeds) popping up everywhere! Spring is definitely here and the weather in Ontario has been amazing. A bit of rain here and there, but for the most part, it has been warm and sunny.
After a very busy weekend I really wanted to get out today. I could have started raking the lawn, but that was too much like work....
I had to go down to the post office and decided to first continue on to the end of the main street and visit our lake and park.
Black and white pics don't really convey the freshness of the day (I did not have my camera with me), so use your imagination to colourize these. LOL
To fully appreciate the blooming buds, I maybe could have tried climbing one of the trees....however neither my figure or my bones are as young and supple as this gal's appear to be and the thought of the fire department having to rescue me? ugh....
Left the park and went back up the main street to the post office. Everyone I met on the street seemed happy - had to have been the weather.
I do live in a rather quaint small town, but it isn't totally hicksville and we do have cars now.
And we really do have a lake at the end of the main street with a park (and gazebo)....
Back home and I guess I should start thinking about supper then I have to get to work on my Spring Challenge piece for ADO (Art Dolls Only).
I did a post about a year ago on a little fae that I sculpted using some old Prosculpt that had been from a defective batch. I kept her, thinking that sometime I would play around with paints to see if I could save her.
Below is the point I'm at with her now. She has had several undercoats of Golden Titan Buff, some burnt umber rubbing and shading and one coat of blue interference. I think I'm going to add some green interference too. I've started to paint her face and tonight hope to get to the point of picking out fabrics for her costume.
My trip to the post office today was to mail my Guardian of Broken Hearts piece to the US. This is the tag I made for her on the weekend. I'm really enjoying creating these for my sold pieces. I do have to get some proper photo paper for printing the image though - the plain old white paper doesn't give the proper definition.
