More of the Orange House

Happy Friday everyone. I hope everyone has gotten spring weather as nice as ours has been (finally!). I've got some paintings this week which I am linking to Paint Party Friday
I've been working some more on my orange house, and I am close to being finished.
Colors are kind of dark here.
Right now (above) this fence doesn't look very sturdy, but it does make a difference adding plants in front of it and repainting the walkway. I also learned about  where sky and land meet and from the horizon in a painting. As you can see in this photo (above) that on the right it seems like this house is sitting all alone on the peak of a hill and that there is nothing behind it. Noticing that I made a few little changes to my painting.
Still a bit to finish off-way too much green in the front. Not sure what to do next, but it will come to me.
Its been so spring like here this week one can't help but be inspired. I've been painting, putting all those tags I made into a journal and even making some cards. Yes, it has been a productive art week. I also took a day off on Tuesday-had to finish our taxes before the Wednesday deadline, and even though it was suppose to rain, it ended up being a beautiful day. I sat outside and read and took a long walk...I hope my vacation week (just 1 more week of work to go) is as nice.
And I can officially say our snow is GONE! Hurray!  (Finally!)
 Signs of spring are really showing up now.
The snow had hardly disappeared when look what I noticed in my garden! I haven't even yet had a chance to rake out the all the debris that blew into the garden over the winter.

Be sure to stop by Paint Party Friday and check out all the great art there. Hope everyone has a great weekend and glad you stopped by my blog.

What an interesting painting, yes it is much better now that you have planted flowers and a tree in its garden. Fun to see its progress.
