Une Maison

From brown to green I gaze outside.
Just being,

I watch the trees dance in the wind,
sweet bird song and April's light bright with promise.

Season of growth and change
I stare and wonder at time.

I dream softly breathing in green and feeling its healing strength spreading through.

I did this journal piece with pastels enjoying the movement, simple lines and just a little bit of color to show the signs of Spring green spreading slowly through the village.

Spring Green

This is a journal piece made up of collage, acrylic paint and oil pastels. I love mixing different media and am loving green just now, taking my inspiration from all the new growth outside.
I wish you all a very happy Easter!

Signs of Spring are everywhere just now, the sweet birds singing, green sprouting everywhere, sunshine warm and days so long I celebrate with my art, wishing you all a wonderful Spring!

A couple of weeks ago I had  a wonderful week-end in a favorite place with my man, this was our view from our hotel room. Here too you can see the first signs of Spring on that beautiful tree.

The other day as I was having a walk in my village I had to stop and take this picture, so pretty!

A few days ago we woke up to a misty green morning, very beautiful and atmospheric. This is the view from my living room window. We are very lucky to have a forest just in front and I love seeing it transform at this time of year from bare brown branches to wonderful shades of bright green!

Early Spring can be so changeable, warm, cold and sometimes really Wintery. If you're still having mostly chilly weather as is normal for this time of year please enjoy a little ray of warmth from this piece which promises that summer is on its way.

The theme for Art Journal Journey is moments of happiness, this piece spreads a happy glow and asks us to linger and fully relish all the little things!

Delight in this special month of April light, fresh buds and green slowly taking over, so bright and fresh, enjoy!

She joyfully dances under her favorite tree feeling Spring slowly peeping in.

March is a special month, between Winter and Spring this month has a special light and feel to it. Some days Winter still lingers on but others feel full of Spring.  She delights in all the little signs, butterflies, first baby buds appearing on the trees, little flowers and blossom popping out here and there. Spring is so fresh and joyful and so she dances happily...

Wishing you all much joy!

Winter Landscapes

                                  Holiday Photos

Hello here I'm posting some photos I took while up in the mountains last week. We had so much snow, the landscape was like something from a picture fairy tale book so I clicked and photo edited these to share with you.

Sleet against the windowpane,
or maybe a mouse in the wall.
I listen but silence knows no direction.
heavey pine boughs,
deep in the quiet woods,
so quiet,
so still.
