How is everyone? We turned our clocks this past weekend for Daylight Savings Time which of course means longer days of sunlight-yay! The temperature is slowly creeping up too so my color/theme choices in my art projects are definitely reflecting Spring!
This is abstract #3 of a series I am creating. I did just finish a 4th but I'll post it another time.
I have more Palm Beach photos to share and then I'll get back to more art.
More window views from our friends' condo:
We visited the area across the way with all the tall buildings. It's Singer Island. Very busy area with condo buildings and hotels galore:
It looks SO beautiful from the condo window when we look across all the twinking lights on these buildings at night! Grateful to view it from our quiet space:)
Our very favorite place to wander was the marinas and we walked it every day- sometimes more than once:
Bill was in love with the palm trees and took MANY pics of them but I'll just share this one:
and we also enjoyed some special Florida animal life while on our walks:
these geckos were everywhere but quite harmless:)
This seabird is called an Anhinga. We identified her (it is a female) after watching quite awhile and taking notes about her behaviors. She stood airing her feathers a long time after coming up from under the water because if she didn't completely dry the feathers she'd just flop into the water again. So cool to watch her!
We also visited MacArthur State Park which had a lovely walkway across the water to the beach and a museum learning center and shop along with kayak rentals. We learned about various sea life including the turtles :
This loggerhead sea turtle was going to be released into the sea the following week which made me happy. One creature we did NOT see anywhere:
and I am quite OK with that!
On our final day before going for dinner we had cocktail hour:
and this was the wonderful champagne we toasted with:
Cheers to the T Stands For Tuesday gang and everyone!
I made this tag for the Simon Monday Challenge (feminine/girly), and Try It On Tuesday (inspired by a word):
I started with a tag that had been swiped onto a craft mat with a variety of water spritzed Distress inks. Other products: background stamped with DOX- Worn Lipstick, Broken China and Cracked Pistachio; black Archival ink. Stamps used were - Ellen Hutson Bokeh Dots set; Dylusions Basic Backgrounds set; Dina Wakley word stamp from a set; Wow! Wall art stamp set; and that darling girl is from Inky Antics Long Hair Flair set! Polka dot washi tape (her dress)-Recollections; pink paint marker; Peerless watercolors.

Thanks for popping in! I have a secret but don't tell anyone-shhh... on March 15th I am turning the big 6 0hhhh! No special plans but on Saturday the 16th hubby and I will spend the day downtown enjoying all the Irish festivities celebrating St. Patrick's Day. Of course I'll have a Guinness for you;)
Wishing you all a super week and weekend ahead!
