It has been a very, very strange April so far. Here in South Dakota, we’ve had more snow since the start of Spring than we did all winter! Today there are a couple of feet of snow outside my window and it’s been snowing all night and all morning. Very chilly, but it does look lovely. Instead of wishing for Spring flowers like I would normally, I think I’m just going to have to embrace the snowflakes and enjoy this bizarre weather.
A couple of weeks ago I was stuck in a blizzard (winter storm Walda) in town for 4 days at my part-time nursing home job. Fortunately the company pays to put us up in a hotel in such a situation, so I had somewhere warm to stay. Between the hotel and Burger King, I even got some painting done!
Here’s the progression of one of my latest, “The Wondrous Garden”, a little cat ACEO.
Sketching art cards and doodly flowers…

I also finished up this little geranium painting — using a photo I’d shot with my phone last summer.

Has it been crazy weather in your neck of the woods? I know in other parts of the US it’s been extremely rainy and stormy.
