Bits & Pieces Of "Spring Pleasures"

This week I started to work on a new painting, which was probably due to my desperate desire for spring and all the color it brings with it.  "Spring Pleasures" is underway and is full of fun and really happy , bold spring color.  I think I'm mostly done at this point, lots of little things to adjust and work on though so as not to jinx myself,  I'll only show little bits and pieces of it until it is fully completed.  So,  it looks like there is a pink tulip somewhere in this painting..............

also lots of swirls of bright cheerful colors..........................

I think I also see leaves and a foot and tail of some sort, a woodland creature perhaps?  Maybe one I'm painting for the first time....hmmm.   Perhaps next week I can show the entire painting once it is fully finished. 

This week I received the prettiest earrings in the mail, they are from Miss Val's Creations - .   I fell in love with this set on Pinterest and had to have them the more I kept looking at them.  They arrived in the mail today and are prettier in person than they are in the photograph.  Val is also guilty of getting me extremely addicted to Pinterest but that is another story so for now I'll stick to the earrings....I love them, thanks Val.

Hi Ruth,

Looks like we are both thinking of early Spring with our pink Tulips. Looking forward to seeing your completed painting with the little creature.
Have a creative day.

I love that beautiful pink/magenta color you're using here!
And Val's earrings are so pretty! I can see why you couldn't resist them :)

Hi Ruth,
The tulip is so gorgeous!!! I am right there with you regarding Spring! Winters are always too long. Thank you so much for showing the earrings. :) I am so happy you love them and I hope you enjoy them for many years to come. Have a wonderful week. ~Val

I'm back since I forgot to answer your questions about creating a Treasury (your beautiful painting distracted me). Yes, it is so easy. I open 1 Etsy window that I am logged into. Then I open a 2nd window for browsing Etsy. Then you can copy and paste the listings' URLs you choose. The pictures can be moved around by clicking and dragging. It was definately fun to do my first one. :)

Hi Ruth!
ooh...I can just about imagine what your finished painting will look like. Love it already - afterall it's got tulips in my favourite colour pink in it!
Val's earrings are delightful! I love that little star bead :)
I know you must be in the midst of organizing your move, but I still hope you have a terrific week!

Hi Ruth, your new painting is truly an inspiration for spring. I wish it would hurry up too. We are getting lots warmer.
Love your earrings too. The color is stunning.

Thank you for your well wishes. I am doing a bit better since the flu and now have pleurisy. I guess I have to be good and rest. Something I am not good at. LOL

Have a wonderful and creative week my friend.
Hugs, Celestina Marie
