Snow Day

It's an unexpected snow day at our house. Hopefully it will be an art day too!

The weather folks are calling for more snow next week, but so far I'm choosing to ignore them.  I can make spring appear on my canvas, paper, and other materials.  :)  So, I'm continuing my dogwood theme.  This piece will be donated to a local school's silent auction.  They are trying to raise money for new playground equipment and I'm hoping this piece of artwork will help them achieve that goal.

Time is flying by as always.  While our daily lives seem to be hectic, I think most of us are impatient for the arrival of spring.  It's been a long, harsh winter and we are all longing for warmer, sunnier days.  In this part of the world, one of the most beautiful signs of spring are the blooming dogwood trees. In shades of white and pink, they are gorgeous reminders that winter doesn't last forever. 

I purchased a new set of enamel and glass paints, and set about trying to recreate those blooms on a large glass vase.  I was pretty happy with the results.  I decided to put this piece on my mantel until it sells as a reminder that spring will get here in its' own good time.
