"The Beginning Day For Huck and Pan" and Springing Forward ~

Traditionally, I love this week....the first week of Daylight Savings Time.

Long lasting light and a promise of warmth is just around the corner.
I don't mind losing one hour of sleep.
The trade-0ff is well worth it.

Spring is peek-a-booing in my yard today.
Just a few pink nectarine blossoms ~

Soon, very soon, my nectarine tree will be covered in a riot of pink ~ 

...and I've just spotted the first secret nasturtium hiding under the daylilies ~ 

Looking forward.

Staying focused.
Believing that there will be softer days ahead.

Life can be so harsh and ugly sometimes.
Unexpected struggles and long drawn-out darkness has a way of stealing hope.

I cling to the Springtime.


Kelly is better ♥

She is taking her medicine and eating her special food.
She's been playing a bit too!

So thankful.

While taking care of this little girl, I worked in the studio ~

and finished this piece ~

This particular piece is very important to the over-all story of "Gerushia's New World."  You see, Huck and Pan (Huckleberry and Pansy) are two of the strongest and boldest characters in Gerushia's World.  They are helpful in the battle against Serafine ~ 

See, Gerushia's New World is not just the name of my art business.
It is the name of an epic fairy tale that I am writing.
Huge fairy tale!
Every piece of art I create has a character that lives in Gerushia's World and is part of the over-all story.

Serafine is, well, sort of like the Lucifer character in Gerushia's World.

Huck and Pan are very important in the battle against Serafine.

Anyway...if you're interested in either of these original pieces, you can find them in my Etsy Shop.

I am keeping busy in the studio.  Going forward with my art and my story.

Working on a new piece that, I believe, is going to prove to be a challenge!

 I am super excited to sink my teeth into this new piece.

I am off to take a long walk.
Clear my head and make plans for the week.

This will be a rough few days for my family and me, but somehow, we'll get by.

Thank you for stopping by.

Until Next Time:
Gerushia's New World
