I Almost Thought Spring was Here

Ginger Jar and Tazettas,  Oil on 4"x6" Linen Panel
I was thrilled to see my tiny fig trees showing signs of spring with their lovely little, ruffled leaves. My roses are also showing off their red and green leaves, along with the lily of the valleys, which I've waiting anxiously to paint. However, Madam Winter is not yet done with us. It will be freezing tomorrow-very rare for Oklahoma at the time of the year. Maybe this means that it will make us love those hot summer days even more. I hope that where ever you are, the weather is fabulous!


  1. We're right there with you-- it's freezing here, too. And snowing. Incredibly annoying.

    Your lovely painting is a welcome burst of spring! Very pretty.


  2. Keri,
    I had to run out in the rain to pick these tazettas befre the freeze came. Today we even had snow flakes--extremely rare for Oklahoma in mid April--absolutely crazy. However, it is Oklahoma and our slogan here is "if you don't like the weather, just wait five minutes." Thank you so much for your lovely visit. :)

  3. Hello, I am in love with your work! Amazing and so beautiful! I am just wishing I could have a couple of these pictures on my sidebar of my blog! Would you even consider it? I would have your name and link to them! I love the pink flowers with the pewter pitcher! Please let me know if it would be possible!
    Come visit my blog and just see how they would go just marvelously...
    Blessings, Roxy

Roses, Chickens, and Bees

My heart is filled with all your inspirational words. Thank you for the happy e-mails, the wonderful advice and sharing of resources, and your kindness and support all around.

I've found that simplifying my life can be complicated and messy at first, but I am getting into the swing of things and finding my way around raising chickens, keeping bees, organic gardening and teaching art.

During winter break, I started my coop plans--all the things coops had to have and the best way to build it so that that it would not be something my neighbors would mind seeing as they step outside their houses. I must add that I have the BEST neighbors in the world.

I bought chickens in March and by April, they were ready to be outside of the brooder I had built them. So, the coop started to go up. About three weeks (most of it during Spring break and then a couple of weekends following), half of a pinkie nail, and five hundred dollars later, my coop was finished and the chickens seemed to have made th…
