Colorful Sunset and more Lynxie Trees ~ We've had some really nice colorful sunsets lately and I was glad to capture this on my camera this evening right before the sun went down. I liked how the headlights showed up in the picture
to give it some extra interest. I'm still painting the Lynxie Trees and I guess I'll keep painting them until I get tired of doing them I'm still having fun with the acrylics, medium charcoal pencil and crystal glitter. Wow, it seems like winter is finally done here and we may be turning on the AC soon. After tomorrow, we are going to have a spell of days in the 80's! Woohoo, summertime is right around the corner and we'll be putting up the big old swimming pool out in the backyard!

HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY! ~ And if you're not wearing at least a little something green today, here's a virtual *pinch* for ya! :p
Here are two more 'Lynxie Trees' done in acrylics in aceo size. I've slowed up on painting them but with the nice weather this week, we have been out in the yard doing some work. Tearing down old fences, putting up new...ouch my aching back! Things are starting to bloom and the grass is greening up, I love it!!

More Lynxie Trees and a Colorful Sunset ~ Ahh, I can hear the spring frogs singing at dusk now and that means that spring is right around the corner! I am so glad, this has been such a long cold hard snowy winter for so many here in the U.S. I know we got way more snow than usual this winter so I'm ready for spring. Back to daylight savings time, don't forget to set your clock ahead one hour this weekend!
Here are three more 'Lynxie Trees' I've painted. I used acrylics, white gesso, medium charcoal pencil, black ink and crystal glitter for the sparklies in the branches. Also, we had an intense sunset the other evening and I had to grab my camera to capture it. That sunset inspired the pinkish sky in the third aceo. I hope everyone is having a great week!

More Lynxie Tree ACEOs ~ I keep saying I would like to paint something larger but I've only been painting these small ones lately. I love using the light reflecting gold and pearl acrylics, the medium charcoal pencil, black ink and crystal glitter in some of these. I've been having fun with these and listing them for auction in ebay. I hope everyone had a great weekend; they're forcasting snow for us here tomorrow night, bleecchh!! At least it's only going to be around an inch but Wednesday morning will be a mess.
