I am acutely aware that I have been AWOL for several weeks. The muse has taken leave because my days are so busy with seemingly unimportant things. Honestly, I don’t know when and where the day ends.
One thing I know, I am happy that flowers are blooming; the garden is just a chirping with so many birds, and, I have been painting…. a lot. As a peace offering, here are some flowers for your viewing pleasure and you may critique my work as a watercolor artist. I had an exhibition of my work at a local restaurant, where the paintings were displayed on the walls for the month of March. Sold a few! (I still cannot believe that!) Hannibal MO, is a beautiful little town on the other side of river Mississippi, and my paintings are displayed there in a gallery. I am just excited that people want me to be part of these exhibitions.
Andrew celebrates his seventh Birthday tomorrow. Took him to get some gifts. All he wanted was Pokémon Cards!! Guess where we went to get them…. yup Walmart! Today, I was telling that to the young lady who does my pedicure, about taking Andrew to Walmart. She started laughing. Said, “Dr. Ali, I just cannot imagine you in Walmart!! 😉
Anyway, here are some flowers. Last year I had planted a Cherry Blossom tree in the back. IT BLOOMED!! OMG! I was on cloud nine!
The flowers felt like air. SO delicate and beautiful. Loved them.
The above is the crab apple. Pretty, no?
Crocuses, Hyacinths, Parrot tulips and Azaleas along with other different beautiful colored tulips and daffodils just made the garden blissful. How beautiful Spring is!
Here are some of my paintings from this past week.
Tulips, wet on wet.
Fog rolling in on the snow.
Did this from a photograph of Santa Maria Dell Salute in Venice.
And the above one is of some flowers, again, wet on wet.
Hope all of you are doing extremely well. And Carolyn, I hope you have heard good news from the biopsy. Have been thinking of you and praying for good results.
Love you all.
