last day of April

(Ohhhh where did this month go ?)

Some years ago we had our
"Queen's day"
on the last day of the month,
but now that we have a king
"King's day"
is already on the 27th of April ...

(that was a sunny day...
but today was WET and COLD !)

The garden is greeeeeen !
With blues of the forget-me-not, muscari,
bluebells and the wonderful
camassia leichtlinii 

I couldn't help it : HAD to draw one ...

(first pencil, then pen, and gouache,
though I loved the paper  that I used before better)
Will do some more around it ...
but I'm not sure what yet

(the trees almost stopped flowering after the rains
of the last two days)

I hope for a bit warmer May !

a very quiet ...


(that's what I had today,
but next week some more people will 
catch up !)

So Man and I had a flowery, quiet, but sunny day
after daughter and her dearest friend came by, 
before leaving on the Fast Ferry to Rotterdam,
bringing some very nice presents !!!

What a little treasure daughter found for me !


Another tiny painting was completed yesterday


(only 7 x 7 cm
2.75 x 2.75")

painting ...

Still painting

(never had something going thát long, I think)

Because I found some good frames
I made somewhat bigger paintings this time
(16 x 24 cm in a 30 x 40 cm frame)

Here are two details

(still more to come)

fooling Easter ?

Easter on the first of April,
funny  ...
though we're a LOT happier than a year ago
(when we spent the day in hospital !
happy to have left thát behind us ...)

A gray day today
and not very warm too !
Not at all what you expect on Easter.

So why not make our own nice day :

Spring flowers from daughter
a bunch of (good old) Easter bunnies
and one of my gouache paintings that I've been making
the last three months.

A happy weekend to you all out there !
