A little spring weather


We will go swamp tramping, with the fair weather dog who would wear shoes, hates the rain and loves to sleep. For Illustration FridayWatercolor Wednesday , Paint Party Friday , Monday Artday & Inspiration Avenue. I think rain must have been on the radar. More spring images here & here.



 Still playing with hellebore flowers these are mixed media on canvas, they are such a representative flower of spring. Rain doesn't seem to slow them up at all!

I'm here from IA and got a big laugh at your dog with the galoshes. Too cute. I think I had a dog similar to that once. He was a hunting dog who hated the water!

see you there! said...

Love the whimsy of your weather post. Yes, evidently weather was on the minds of lots of folks on lots of sites this week.

The colors are vibrant, and the design is lovely. Great face on the dog, and nice composition that the umbrella is shrouding the human's face. Love it!
