It has been quite warm this week and I have started to work some outside. The weeds seem to have started up more than my flowers and I am trying to get a head start, especially on the dandelions. Show me your yellow flower, and you’re gone! They are easy to spot right now and with the rain we had last week, I can pull most weeds up with the help of my hand trowel. I have already pulled 2 wheelbarrows full so I’m feeling pretty good about that. Not too much too soon or my hands will let me know about it.
In the meantime, I have pretty well finished up the watercolor calf. I’ve deepened his coloring and added more to the background. Although this is the same calf I did the acrylic head shot of a while back, the tone is a little bit less personal, I think. Farther away, he doesn’t look quite so curious – more like he is staring hard, deciding if he should stay or run. I’ll probably list him in my etsy store this week.
