Come With Me...

A cool and slightly breezy morning tempted me out of doors. I decided to play in and among the flowers. Then I wondered if you too, might like to come with me to visit the garden.




Inspired by this beauty and eager to create, I began a new fiber journal artwork. I painted this lovely bluejay with acrylic paints on fabric and carefully cut him out. I am still working on the page, but can hardly wait to share the finished piece with you.

Beautiful flowers.... I love your Jay. What a pretty boy. My mom gets hundreds of Jays where she lives. She says they are quite the talkers. We only have crows, no pretty Bluejays. :(

Keep up the lovely work!
