"If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense

I am super into Flamingos at the moment. Nathan showed me a picture he took of a Roseate Spoonbill - ummmm super love! So, my new summer art is going to be based around these lovely pink birds.

I was asked to paint a ornament for a Christmas themed festival back in December. I was given an angel and this is what I turned it in to...
Flamingos need candy cane tights- obviously!

And the beautiful Christmas-y flamingo angel ornament

Then I decided that I would paint for my students while they were doing their artwork in class. I copied a John James Audubon flamingo.... it's a work in progress and my students have enjoyed watching the process

Everything tastes better in our new home :)

Nathan and I have a gigantic list of DIY projects for the new house. So, I'll post pictures on here every time we finish one.
So far dinners have been very good- very close to cooking at the cabin (EVERYTHING TASTES BETTER AT THE CABIN)
