Oh yeah, Spring is ... confused!

Things can really change in a few days. Just ask the daffodils... In twenty years, this is the most and the prettiest snowfall I've ever seen here in Northeast Georgia. The horses were running around sniffing the ground and tossing their heads - and Freda was (blush) afraid of the snow...

A blanket of snow for Easter Lilies. In this case, they are Valentine lilies!! Or President's lilies...?

I was working on the cabinet on the right at a client's home - making a couple of changes/additions when Brodie came over to sulk a bit. He's not the one pictured - he's the new dog; a rescue - and I think he wants to be painted! Cool dog - a Blue Weimeraner. I had a wonderful time painting for this animal and art loving couple. Just being in a home filled with original art gives me a huge lift! Everywhere you look, there is something to make you smile.
A funky bear they bought at a silent auction - coincidentally, I had done much of the painting! This was for a fundraiser and I'd no idea who had "won" it. Small world.
The kitties on one side of the canine cabinet, done in a folksy style.
A cool and spooky figure. Very enigmatic.

These were just a few of the interesting art items in this wonderful mountain lake home. Oh - and I'll be doing a portrait of Brodie in the near future.

Meanwhile, Happy Snow Day!


  1. Heh, heh! It looks like Brodie's not gonna let you out of the house until you paint him. And how cool to walk into a house and see a piece of your own work!

    It snowed here Wednesday, but it's been warm enough afterward that I'm wondering how long before I see grass in the back yard again.

  2. we got some down here on the coast on nc, too.,.. and it was like Christmas.

    so nice.

    but no daffodils yet.

  3. Hi Patrice! Great stuff! The snow, so delicate on the flowers, so beautiful.
    I love the painting on the cabinet, and what an amazing place it looks like, seems such a refined and meaningful sort of design of the livingspace. Nice home for your work to live. Wonderful just wonderful. I love the cats, too. You captured the air about them, all of your animals are so alive in your work.

    btw, after accidentally deleting my blog, I've been putting the pieces back together again but the old address is defunct. still, you can find me now by nameclick here(above).

    so glad i found you again!

  4. Hi Patrice- I love the kitties you painted on that furniture! And the dog too.
    We have had more than enough snow this month alone to have supplied the Olympics. I say this just in case you'd like me to ship you some more.
