Had a productive birthday! :)

"Friendly Play on a Sunny Day"
11x12 watercolor on paper

A couple hours ago I celebrated the anniversary of my 29th birthday :)  The week has been busy with my appointments and with storms and tornado warnings so there was no point in making definite plans to go out.  My husband had an bit of emergency work to do for the morning but he hurried home to cook us a nice brunch which allowed me to keep on painting for a change!  It's been a busy week with not enough time for focused painting so I was pleased to stay home :)

 "Thanksgiving Orchid" 
ACEO 2.5"x3.5" watercolor on paper

This piece was also some sort of a celebration - a new bloom from my orchid Scott bought me last Thanksgiving!  I was both cheering the new bloom and the fact I've kept the plant alive this long!  I was painting from life,so with the orchid sitting under a light it had completely opened up by the time I finished the painting!
I received tons of birthday greetings on Facebook so I was very flattered and happy that over 120 people took the time to greet me especially with the holidays and families getting together this week!

Happy Passover and Happy Easter to my friends and readers!
