A Light Spring

Spring is beautiful.  Full of hope and renewal.
It's a time for doing new things, changing old ways.

As you may already know, I've taken the leap and put my artwork up for sale on Etsy.  Now that the kids are old enough to play by themselves and basically keep themselves entertained for a while, I have a little extra time to stretch my creativity once again.

Etsy is full of inspiration.  It has really helped me seeing other artist's work!  I finished the sketch above earlier today.  I love the simplicity and beauty of a well executed drawing!

My hens have begun laying beautiful eggs, Spring is in the air, and Easter is on its way!  This calls for a fine and simple egg still-life painting!

Now that Spring is here, it's also time for changing some old ways, such as leaving behind heavy, wintery, comfort foods.

Thanks to some further inspiration from my sister, I just made homemade street tacos! 
Oh, yum!

Simple.  Quick.  Delicious!

Here's what I did:
Sauteed Bell Peppers, Onions, Baby Bella Mushrooms
Load warm corn tortillas with sauteed vegies
Top with Cilantro, Lime Juice, and a drizzle of BBQ Sauce

Light and full of satisfying flavor.

If you would like some menu planning ideas, check out my sister's blog!

Happy Spring!
