A little bit of a twist on the theme today: a seaside fairy who reads music.

One of the dandelions I picked for inspiration the other day went into full-blown awesome mode today, opening up into a firework bloom of seeds and inspiring me. I also wanted to paint someone with white hair, as I've now had almost a year of not dyeing my own. It's not nearly as awesome as this.

The colors are a little over-saturated, but I guess that's what you get for taking a picture with your phone at night. The real colors are inspired by one of the few tulips we have left after the neighborhood groundhog decapitated them all. And her hat is - what else? An acorn.

Tomorrow starts a new month - and a new goal. It's time to paint every day in May, people.
I have been doing this on and off every year since 2006, I believe. You can draw, paint, sing, write, just basically pledge to create something every day in the next 31 days. Create 31 different paintings. Work on one for 31 days. Here's the thing.
THERE IS NO WRONG WAY TO DO THIS.I promise.
Here are places you can join and share your work:

The t-shirt we made her for today, which matches the cardboard doodles we still have hanging in the kitchen. The Sophster is a sloth fan from waaaay back (remember the sloth Christmas painting?) so we knew she'd love it. Happy birthday, you awesome kid.
