SPRING!

Wow! What a party! Wasn't sure if I'd get this done after this week's busy Paint Party Friday. I had a silly idea that seemed to cover both Inspiration Avenue's weekly challenge theme of "Hello, Spring" and Mr. Toast's Creative Tuesday bi-weekly challenge theme of "Springtime" .

I was having such fun with it though that I kept on going and here it is in time for Inspiration Avenue, Sunday Sketching with Sophia at Blue Chair Diary and a bit early for Creative Tuesdays!


Initial sketch:


All of these challenges are great fun with such talented artists participating! I'll be visiting them, will you?

  32. I have so enjoying visiting all the CT blogs. It is putting me more in the mood for spring. We had snow on the tulips the other day but they are still handing in there. Not in bloom yet just ready to burst out. Good job.

  37. Oh this is too funny. You know I originally thought of drawing a bunny tying springs on his feet. In the end, I wasn't happy with my rendition so I just went with paper cutting. Anyway, I love your little springs on wee little bee legs.

  38. I've always wondered how those bees jumped from flower to flower...Thanks for solving the mystery.

    So cute... you are a clever artist!
