Blue bird of happiness

Creating with a watercolor effect on bisque 

 and inspired by my surroundings...

In the 1908 play by Belgian author Maurice Maeterlinck,
the children of a woodcutter are sent to look for the Bluebird 
of happiness aided by the good fairy Berylune.
The children search through out different lands
until they find the bird in its cage.

The moral of the story,
true happiness can be found close to home.

Garden inspiration

I love spring !

New growth, new beginnings...

lovely surprises to find popping their heads up in the garden!

I am in awe of natures beauty,

and enjoy capturing it with my art.

"Just living is not enough...
One must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower."
Hans Christian Andersen
