7" x 10"

One of the first flowers of spring after the crocus and trillium are the Tulips.  Wish they would bloom all summer.  After these are done blooming, then it is time, or in this case, was time, to start my planting.  As of this writing my gardens are all planted and in bloom.  That is part of why I am behind in posting....and I also have been so busy painting.  You will have to keep coming back to see the new subjects that I have painted.

Have a great week.  Stay well and stay safe.

Chicago Living - Up North

14" x 21"

Love the homes up in the city of Chicago.  I think it would be cool to live up there but I can't imagine what the parking would be like...Bet they have to fight for those few parking spots...or they just do not have a car and they take public transportation

Stay Well and Stay Safe.

The awesome foxglove grow in my garden.  One of my favorites...I will let you in on a secret, they are all my favorite flowers.  Don't let the other flowers know.

Be Well.  Stay Safe.

7" x 10"

I sure planted a lot of flowers this year....it gets harder every year but I am determined.  I love how pretty all of my gardens look and I spend a lot of time keeping them up.  

As I get older the arthritis make it harder to get around or up and down.  But, there is nothing like getting all the latest dirt.  Today it is in the 90s so I guess the garden I wanted to re landscape will have to wait.   

This year with the Covid virus it made it even harder to do.  When we were finally able to go out to shop ,I will admit, I had apprehensions.  I also had my mask, gloves and hand sanitizer.  The selection wasn't as great as it usually was, but all in all, I think I did really well.  My discover bill has proof of that.  lol.

Stay cool, Stay Well.  Stay safe. Don't forget to water those flowers.

Bleeding Hearts and Sunny Flowers

watercolor on canvas 
12" x 12"

Some times it is good to shake things up a bit and try new or different things.    Life 101.   This is a regular watercolor done on watercolor canvas.   All kind of things happen when working on this canvas.   You can get a Batik type of style.
Having fun in the studio..

here's another bonus for today....Sunny Flowers.
This is a watercolor on paper... I am so far behind on posting my new works that I thought I would give you two today.

Stay well, stay safe,  Kathy

It's Lonely in the City

14" x 21"

Chicago during the Covid 19 shutdown was really a lonely empty city.  Maybe it was empty with all the people, cars and traffic, but all the beauty of the city was open.  I was able to see all the architectural structures, the lake and open spaces.  These sure are different times.  This, too, shall pass.

Stay well.  Be safe.
