Baby Goats

New life on our farm. 
Sweet, fluffy, full of life. 
Joy, sweetness, love. 
Fresh milk.
Worth it.

New and exciting places to explore,
Hours of pretend games,
Unique, awe-inspiring,
Worth the trip!

Morning in the Mountains

Crisp air, 
Scent of pine, 
Sound of birds and water,
Expressions of delight

Irrigating at Grandma's

Hours of entertainment.
Hands in the soil,
Water flowing,
Seeds of life growing.

Yellow Flower Abstract Painting

So, it's been winter here in Idaho for a loooooong, loooooooooooong time. 
I took down my Christmas decorations and my house looked nice and clean and neutral and...colorless. I looked out the window, and the snow was beautiful and clean and....colorless.  

I needed some color! A bright happy color.
So, I went to town, bought myself some yellow pillows, decor and looked high and low for some yellow wall art, but couldn't find anything I wanted. Looked online, couldn't find anything I wanted, so I headed to town and bought a canvas, determined to do it myself!

I didn't really have a plan...or at least a good one.  I tried a few different ideas on A LOT of little papers in my kitchen and finally settled on this. I'd seen a few abstract yellow flowers and swirls and such online, so I went with this. I was nervous to actually get the paint onto the canvas, but once I started, it came together how I wanted it to and was SUPER FUN!!
I've decided I need to paint more in my life. On big canvases. Any painting is fun, but there was something particularly releasing about getting a big ol' canvas and a big ol' paint brush and laying it on thick.

And now my room has bright, happy yellow in it and every time I see it, I smile. :) 
Yay for color!
