It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (April 15): 04/15/19
This week my kids are on Spring Break. My youngest is volunteering as a PA for the spring Girl Scout camp. My husband and oldest are taking a two day road trip to check out some colleges.
Last week I made progress on my second mini nature painting. I'm nearly done with the daffodil but I got distracted by other things and didn't finish it.
Yesterday was the artists' reception for the Planet Earth: the Beauty of Life show. I have four paintings in the show: two landscapes and two birds. The seascape and the salt flats paintings in the above photo are mine.
On the reading front, it was a good week. It was a mixture of new and backlist. I read four mysteries, a children's book, a humor book, and a comic book.

So many great books. Never enough time. I've got Finding Dorothy in my pile, but haven't even cracked the cover. Hope you enjoy all your books.
Love the colors in your new painting.
Thanks for visiting my blog last week.

I need to clean up the art table. It's become the dumping ground for my family. That's tomorrow's task.

love your bird paintings - I can't say which I like more, they are both so cool!
As usual most of your books look interesting! City of Lies and A Question of Holmes are definitely going on my list. And yay for road trips!
