Day 81 and original paintings added

What a beautiful day it was outside! I didn't get to enjoy it too much because of all this stupid packing. I hate moving! But it has to be done.

Anyway, I did take a break and went to photograph the plum blossoms that are starting to burst open. The street leading to the community where I am living (just for another 8 days) is lined on either side with plum trees. They are stunning in full blossom. But once I got the images home and started playing with them--on my break--the chain link fence in the background was too strong. So, I've used a watercolor effect filter and I like them. I thought perhaps I would do a grouping of 4 images to a set of blank cards. What do you think?

While on that extended break, I uploaded two acrylic paintings to http://www.kweststudio8.etsy.com/ and am looking forward to seeing what response I get. Will the paintings be used in as many Etsy treasuries as are the photographs? Time will tell.

In any case, here are the plum blossoms.

  1. Beautiful photos of beautiful blossoms! And I'm sure your paintings will be in as many treasuries as the photos have been.
