The bird shown is a newcomer to our backyard as springtime arrived. I put out our hummingbird feeders the beginning of April and we have already had one early arrival feeding from them.
The last month I had a resurgence of interest in my family genealogy. I have found over years of being the family genealogist that when the urge to research and update my family history emerges I have to go with it because the intensity it takes to do the work and quick burnout that sometimes happens can be all consuming. Thankfully I had done most of the work years ago (I started in 1981) and this was fairly short lived though very fulfilling and productive.
Lastly, this morning as I looked at the blank canvas of a 16"x20" gessoed masonite board I painted this original acrylic painting I'm calling "Godly Brilliance".
I look forward to an amazing spring and summer this year, due to rain and God's abundant blessings. Stay tuned, I expect to be very busy this year and posting new artworks and pleasures.
