As I sit here at my window, I can just about watch the buds opening on the maple tree. This morning I watched a little scramble between a robin and a brown squirrel. I'm not sure who got there first but they both seemed to be claiming squatter's rights!
I finished the latest in my à la Klimt series. It's a Madonna, quite reflective and a little sad, more romantic than art deco. I've used a combination of metallics and gold leaf. It's a fairly large piece 16 x 20 inches on a 1.5 inch deep box frame.
