April 24th,
I walked across the green  lawn to my sister house to let the dog out, such a Beautiful dog, he is a Norweign Elk Hound. He's always glad to see me and always wanting to play.

The Blueberries are quite green with beautiful white flowers, the tulips are dressed in their yellow, red and pink attire,the Dogwood has Beautiful flowers swaying in the breeze of Spring.
And we can't forget the red Maples with their flyers.
 I see a Robin with twigs in its mouth, ready to start setting up house keeping, the wrens are flying in and out of the birdhouse making ready for babies. I guess you can say Spring has sprung.

"When daisies pied and violets blue
And lady's smocks all silver-white
and cuckoo buds of yellow hue
Do paint the meadows with delight."
                                 SHAKESPEARE - SONG

Have you heard of ENCAUSTIC  Painting?

If you would like to give it a try, here is a little thing you could try.

Supplies:  Paper(watercolor)   Crayons     knife   wax paper

How to's:   place watercolor paper on wax paper.
                       shave some crayon on to watercolor paper.
                       colors to use, Orange - red - yellow - Light green - medium green -
                          dark green- and purple.

                       Cover with waxed paper and iron. It will melt the crayon.
                     As it melts move the iron to create a design of your choice.
                     Let it cool down, remove the waxed paper and you'll have
                      your 1st Encaustic Painting.

Try it , it is a lot of fun and you never know what your going to create.
Have a Wonderful day and think of Creating a piece of Art.
