Busy week and productive one too. I lOVE Spring. I feel so motivated about my art and creating. Also learning new things about the business end of it all.
This is actually the first week in a long, long time that I have posted two posts in one week. I wrote about a returning robin enjoying our little ponds of water to take a much needed bath after their migration.
AND I’ve been painting: not really big paintings, but watercolor sketches of plum blossoms

and I went beyond the woods:
‘Beyond the Woods’ ~ watercolor on paper ~ original 9×12
and found me a fat, little green bunny: (just the first, well second layer) of Winsor Newton Paynes Grey with Sap Green…..
bunny, bunny so fat and round…why do you look all green?
Just need to add some more detail and fix a few things and I might call her good. We will see tomorrow. I found this little sweetie in a new store in town, kinda like a Ross, with a little bit of everything thrown in. Couldn’t resist her for 2 bucks.
I hope everyone’s weekend was fabulous,
peace n abundance,

This was the first year in about three that the Robins left our area of northern New Mexico for the winter again, like they use to do. So seeing them and hearing their melodious songs in the morning is so incredible and welcome.
I just added fresh water to the pond liners and it didn’t take long for one to make out like a bandit
checking things out
what’s up above?
looked right at me thru the window
got in anyway
startin’ to splash
gettin’ down in it. those are water bubbles on her back feathers

Aren’t her colors amazing?
I even took a little movie of her but don’t know how to post it here on WordPress so here is the link instead of the Robin Bath , never mind it did it

I went and did my grout-girl thing with my honey and I saw:
sweet little 2 day old, 5 day old and a month old lamb….
brand new and Lovin’ Life
Down by the river where the cool water flows,
lived a little flock of sheep.
They were lucky enough to have little frisky, fun-lovin’, kick-up-your-heals and go-all-out lambs.
down by the river in the sweet new grass lived a little flock of sheep, all sparkly and sweet
‘Baaaaaaa aa’ says the Mama
‘bleep’ says the lamb
‘can I climb that? asks the baby
and off they go all in a row
nothing says Spring like a brand new lambs
Such an amazing little gift of an early morning here in Taos, New Mexico.

wanting to post something spring like
ready for takeoff over bokeh
I’ve been cleaning up my photographs that I have transfered to my external hard drive.
so many beauties
I’ve been dumping photos into MyBook for years. Alot of them are in order and in files I understand, but I have tons of files with just dates on them and no idea of what’s in the folder.
orange beauty on yellow
It’s actually kind of fun finding photographs I forgot all about.
the more the merrier
I finally got all my 2011 cleaned up and sorted. Wow that felt great and now I’m working on 2012.
here’s looking at you, I mean me…it’s looking right at me
I found these beauties from last July down along the river.
moths too were everywhere
Butterflys just fascinate me. I wish I knew what all of these are called.
river bokeh is amazing with butterflys everywhere
I must have shot and edited 200 photos of just these amazing little creatures that day. There seemed to be hundreds, but probably really 50 all fluttering around these bold yellow river daises.
I’m so glad spring is here. I even saw a little white butterfly today down by the river when I went to get water. First one of the year. I wonder what they eat right now with nothing blooming.??
Peace n Abundance,
as always if you see anything you would like as a photo for your wall just let me know. newmexicomtngirl at hotmail dot com will do the trick. Or maybe one of these as a watercolor. I haven’t painted butterflys yet.
my Etsy shop is http://www.cheyannesexton.etsy.com where you can find lots of watercolors and photos
