Spring, please. PLEASE!

Yeah, it’s a cliché, but I’m sorry, I live in Minnesota and the older I get the more I appreciate spring. I’m so blasted excited for winter to be over I can barely sit still. I’ve been wearing flip-flops around the house just to make myself feel better. But then it snowed 6 inches on Monday so, you know, one step forward then you fall on your butt on the ice. 
 
I cope by making floral art (then more Christmas, but then more florals). Florals will always have my heart. As the snow came down on Monday I was painting fruit and flowers, which turned out to be a nice form of therapy. Then, because I couldn’t help myself, I made this homewares collection presentation because I would LOVE to see this on some dishes or serving pieces - or a tablecloth!

Bunches of bouquets in the shop!

I was having a hard time getting into my groove on Monday so I went back to some flowers I'd painted the week before and started "arranging" them in Photoshop. I actually love arranging flowers in real life (I get that from my Grandma Virginia) and it turns out arranging them digitally is almost as much fun - and they last FOREVER! 

Then I did a couple more! And then I put them in my shop because I really like them and someone else might too.

I suppose one down side is they don't smell as nice as real flowers. I'll just have to wait for spring and summer for that.
