“Why should there be treasure at the end of the rainbow, whilst the rainbow itself is so magnificent and glorious?…… You can’t catch rainbows, but you sure can appreciate its splendour.” Words from a wise friend that swam back to me while painting this colour scape.

I’m so glad I’m not a cat. I would be long dead with all the curiosity I dabble in.⁠
.⁠
I have a tiny (ok rather large) side obsession with feathers. I wear ’em, I collect ’em, they’re all over my house and once upon a time I used to do minimalist sculptor-ly paintings of them.⁠

Every now and then I get to a stage where there’s just too much and everything must go. So I toss em all out and keep only my favourites. But today I found myself a little bored with all my paintbrushes and so decided to play with the painterly skills of a feather for the branches – since I had so many.⁠
.⁠
Gotta say I love this one – purely for the delight, I discovered on the other side of curious experimentation. 🐦⁠

I was so over the cold today that I thought I’d try the painting equivalent of a rain dance. I also promptly shoved the pedantic ‘the sun must be round’ version of me in the drawer…so ya this painting practically named itself.⁠

You want sunshine on a cloudy day⠀
When It’s cold outside, you’re in the month of May…⠀

Some silly for your Saturday.⠀

Another painting done entirely by palette knife. ‘Twas like spreading butter all over my canvas.
