"April Showers bring May Flowers"

It's time for me to begin to get ready for our next Vintage Marketplace June 3rd & 4th. Not only is my yard exsploding with new flowers from all the rain we have had, but also my mind is full of new painting inspirations ready to come out. I will be dedicating the month of May to working on those ideas. XO Christie

    Take care, Sue

  8. Christie,
    I would feel so special riding a bike like that! Gives a whole new meaning to stop and smell the roses.
    Can't wait to see what comes off of your paint brush for May!

  18. Hello, just found your blog this morning and so glad! I love everything I see. I have loved your paintings since I first saw one. Your photographs of roses are stunning. I am your newest follower. I invite you to visit my blog.

  19. Dear Christie,
    As always, your work is beautiful and exquisite. Love the antique bike with the basket full of summer flowers.
    I have not doubt that your bloomed garden will give you all the incentive to produce new gems for us to admire.
    My own garden blooming lovely in this warm spring always gives me great inspiration and I did sketches for a few paintings that I have in mind.
    Keep painting
    Hélène XO

  22. Wonderful painting Christie!I wish also a beautiful weekend of May 1st.
    In France, the lovely custom is to offer lily of the valley as a lucky charm.
    So "Heureux 1er Mai" and full of exquisite inspirations !!!

  23. Hello Christie,

    Just a few words to wish you a lovely weekend. May Day is our Labour Day.

    In France, people may present loved ones with bunches of lily of the valley as a lucky charm.
    It is also traditional for the lady receiving the spray of lily of valley to give a kiss in return.
    A very charming tradition.

    Happy May Day to you !

  24. So pretty Christie~~love the new art piece :))
