Warm Weather Is Finally Here!

Posted on May 18, 2021 at 7:10 PM

Finally the warm weather has arrived.  My lilac is in bloom and the fragrance is beautiful.  I'm so glad that winter has relinquished it's icy grip at last.  My garden has started to grow, the rhubarb is nearly ready for picking so crumble is on the horizon. It's my favourite time of year.

As far as the painting has gone, I'm afraid there has been a pretty big block.  I've attempted three times to paint a piece for Explorers Against Extinction, a charity event taking place in Norwich, England (near to where I last lived in the UK) to no avail.  I'm spending the next little while after I post this blog to look up another subject as I just can't conquer the lion I wanted to paint.  Lions are especially dear to me for a couple of reasons; when I was a child my father brought me back a stuffed animal lion and told me he would always guard me.  This tradition was carried on by my father who consequently bought my children lions.  I spent a lot of time searching for just the right lion for my grandson and did find one in Florida.  The other reason was my struggle to cope with the hunting and killing of the lion known as Cecil.  I have never been able to forget this cruel act, done in pure greed and ignorance.

One bright spot in the last few weeks was a message I received from the curator of this year's Twitter Art Exhibit, my little postcard titled "Three Green Apples' was chosen as a "Fav Five" by one of the Twitter Art Exhibit board members, resulting in my being awarded a feature page in this year's catalogue.  To say I'm thrilled is an understatement and I have ordered a copy.

This weekend is the first long weekend of the summer, "May 24" to celebrate Queen Victoria's birthday.  I am planning to paint in Meaford, so I'm going to need a bit of luck wished.

On the Covid front....still in lockdown until at least June 2.  The numbers are declining however and vaccinations are getting done at a rapid pace, finally.  Our federal government has been lax with incoming flight rules, so the variants of the disease have entered our country unfortunately....they've also been slowish to procure enough vaccines at a reasonable rate but finally this seems to be getting better.

Please follow all the public health rules and stay safe.

Until next time.
