11 x 15 Watercolor and ink on paper
The daffodils are all peeking up from the oak leaves in the woods. I hope it's the sort of spring that the daffodils and tulips last longer than a week.... Some springs come in too hot.
We are still basking in the glow of our Michigan State Spartan victory yesterday afternoon...
Unbelievably... the feed to the local cable station froze with 11 seconds left in the game.... We were scrambling around as much as the players were, trying to find the streaming video online. We saw the last second of the game ...but missed the more important 10 previous seconds... and the celebration after....Which is always my favorite part. :(... Oh well... wadda ya gonna do.

I wish folks could show some restraint... I'm so tired of people shouting over each other and not listening. What happened to respectful dialog? Or even agreeing to disagree? I know that emotion can be a good thing, but not when it escalates bad behavior, builds walls, and stymies dialog.
Level heads....where are you?
And that's as close to political commentary that you'll get from me. aaaarrrrgggggh!

11 x 14 Watercolor
I felt the need to play with straight watercolor over the last couple of days. Watercolor is such a joyful medium. I really like the back runs and unpredictability. And the transparency is pretty cool too.

The one daffodil is stretching... What an over achiever.
I keep humming "Where is tall man, where is tall man... And he's yelling... "here I am...here I am!" The others have since caught up to him, but it took them a few days.
We have our house up for sale again. We've had a lot of traffic... so between getting it ready to show... and then all the showings (4 in 5 days) I haven't really been able to paint. I'm thinking watercolor will be a bit easier to stay neat with. I tend to really splash about with acrylic.
