Mixed Media Art...


...using an assortment of artist materials, found objects and embellishments to create a work of art. I look at this and think 'qualified'. I may use it as a stARTing place to do my own mixed media project.

Call to Morning

I spent a good part of my growing up life on the farm and mornings were announced by the resident rooster(s).  This metal sculpted rooster is doing his part. He did not reside on my property though.

He was spending his days at this restored log home just down the road from where I live. For many years it operated as a bed and breakfast and was a wonderful place to visit.
Linking to Good Fences, go here and enjoy the fences, gates and scenery.

Spring Whites +

Every day our walks are filled with more flowering trees and other beauties.

Cherry Tree blossoms.

Not sure who this nest belongs to. The eggs look like robin but the nest construction does not. Loose grasses laid in a previous bird nest (not robin) from last year. Will be looking for these parents to be.

Blossoms on the Crab Apple tree.

An older Redbud tree in bloom. The crappie  are biting when this tree blooms.

A non  bearing (escaped Bradford ) pear tree in beautiful bloom.

Home Sweet Home

The entrance to a home in the shape of a heart. 


The main resident is Dug, a groundhog. All the groundhogs here are named Dug.
A drawing I did in pencil for the 29 faces challenge in February here.

Mandy being patient. She does 'not' exhibit this behavior when Dug appears.

Skywatch Friday



A beautiful sunrise a few days ago. There was rain yesterday and rain again this morning but there is a chance of sunshine late this afternoon.

Signs of Spring are bursting out all around us.

The rock will soon lose it's moss when the sun reaches it.
