    Bursts of Fun!

    ‘Rain Girl’

    “Rain Girl”

    I painted this in early April, when every other day seemed to be filled with rain. It’s that in-between season where the promise of spring grows heavy like an overfilled water balloon about to burst. Against a gray sky and a brittle brown earth, little emerald-green nubs of hostas and tulips emerge, as a prelude to the waterfall of color that will soon flood the sleeping landscape.

    So, I painted a colorful girl walking in the rain, wearing red boots and holding an umbrella. She is super excited for spring!

    Watercolor Dolphin Family

    While I’m landlocked in a state that morphs into a tundra each winter, I dream of tropical islands, friendly dolphins, and crystal blue water. So I suppose this painting is somewhat of a mid-winter dream.

    While the intelligence of dolphins is no secret, this video below shows a dolphin ‘asking’ a diver for help with a stuck fishing line. It’s a bit of a long video, but amazing to watch.
