I am almost complete with my new painting. I actually was working on another painting at the same time. I will show you that one later. This allows me to maximize my time and not waist any paint.
I searched thru many images of birds on the internet. I loved the contrast in color of this bird. I'm not sure the name of this kind of bird. I believe the bird is called a bullfinch. I'm not sure what I will title this image.

I had been busy working on a few new prints just before spring break. These prints are mounted onto canvas and sealed with varnish. They are a part of my new inspirational art.
These mini prints would make a great accent to any room or office. They will available in my shop within the next few days.

Since the kids have their spring break so late this year till the end of the school year, we decided to have a staycation. Needless to say computer time is limited. So, I decided to search around Etsy to find some great picks. I chose the color mint green for my search.
The above frames are from Mountain Cove Antiques. They have a wide selection of frames.
Semi Sweet Studios has beautiful tranquil landscapes.
Beach Blues has the ultimate decorative jars in shabby chic.
Niki, who is from one of my teams, has these beautiful graphic prints from her shop Joyful Song Graphics.
This beautiful rustic photo is from Laugh Love Photo.
I hope you take a chance to discover all these wonderful shops and what they have to offer!

I can not tell you how many shots it takes to get the whole family together to take a holiday picture. Well, after church we started the task of corralling these three for a picture.
Let me tell you this is no easy task. Usually, one will get the sillies, then the others will join in on the fun. As we the parents get more frustrated as time goes by. If only you could have seen how Bethany, then Michel decided they could set the timer on the camera, when they actually just took a candid shot.
So, finally we all get on the same page and get that perfect picture. I can not tell you how it helps in times like these to have perspective. These little moments of craziness are just a treasure of memories to share in the future with the family. Time has gone by so fast. Even though at times it seems like an eternity. Where have my little babies gone? They are growing up so fast.
I hadn't made an orange flavored cake in so long. I decided it was time to try something different.
It is my hope that you also had wonderful memories to treasure for years to come as well. Also remember how our risen Lord rose victoriously that day. That my friends is a great memory to treasure and honor each and everyday.
I hope you had a wonderful Easter!
