Rustic Spring Flowers

Like many of you have had this year, we are smack dab in the middle of a big ol' winter storm. Honestly, February weather has been bad--so many sub zero days and finally, lots of snow.

A few weeks ago, while I was wrapping presents for my dear daughter's birthday, I was inspired by the wrapping paper and decided to paint spring flowers, even if it is still winter out. When life gives you winter, paint flowers might be my new motto!

If you follow my blog, you know I have recently started painting with wood scraps. I am not sure how or why this cam about--just something I decided to try that I really enjoy. I grab scraps of wood from the ground near my saw and dip them in paint and paint away.

I used a piece of quarter-sawn barnwood for this painting, giving the background extra texture.

I framed it out with a wood and painted it white and then stained it all. Fresh flowers to add a little color to the sea of white outdoors. Stay warm friends!

I love the cold weather (what little we have) because I adore wearing my boots & scarves:)
