End of April Sketches

The end of April in Chicago we spent celebrating Easter and enjoying watching the garden come to life. Yes, the rain and perpetual indecisiveness of the Chicago weather can be a drag, but nothing beats seeing the first signs of Spring. The buds forming on the trees, the hosta plants popping up through the earth, my chives and parsley coming back from last year’s garden! I love the Spring and I love gardening. The large floral commissions I have been painting are a reflection of the flowers popping up. People want to put nature on their walls! I have a few new commissions which will be nature inspired as well. Lots of sea and sky. Sigh. How lovely! Here are the last few weeks of my Sketch-A-Day project. Ranging from whimsical jellybeans to sketchy still lifes to abstract.
