It's Almost Planting Time!

"The Garden Made Her Heart Sing" D.Altaville c.2007
This is a painting that I finally finished, being inspired by the sweet smell
and sounds of Spring in the air! I was outside with the little guy yesterday,
drawing with chalk, singing songs, and noticing how brown and decayed
our front garden looked. You know it has that decayed look of winter.
But it's almost plantin' time! YAY! Soon we'll have that baby, bright and cheery
with little blooms! And speaking of blooming...my older son has now had
two of his computer art pieces printed in a local paper! How cool is that?
My daughter, also an avid drawer and writer, also had a couple of poems in the
same publication. Isn't it great to see your children bloom?
That's what really makes my heart sing!
And of course this piece is up on my Art n Joy shop at etsy.
(I'm turning into quite the shameless promoter here. lol)
Hope everyone is bloomin with a song in their heart today!

I love your new piece. I'm a garden fanatic, so I am drawn to anything gardeny (and funky).

Congrats to your kids. Because, after all, they are our ultimate garden, aren't they?

What a wonderful spring-y piece! The colors are yummy and I love this little guy's -blooming- tummy! Spring is catching - don't ya think? When you're done planting your beds, would ya come plant some of mine? I hate the wintery decay but can't get into planting myself...wah.

Thanks for stopping by my blog again. I love it when that happens! And thanks for the kind remarks, too.
