Spring Plum Blossoms, New Deck, Rose House Art Show

...a lovely cloudy/sunny day here in the Northwest and our plum tree is bursting with creamy white blooms... while our nearby vegetable garden stores up energy for the bounty to come....
Taking Care of the Homestead
Finally our new decks are completed along the upper back of the house replacing the old crumbling one. Instead of a long narrow one the length of the house, now we have a larger more usable one near the kitchen dining area and a small one on the other end. The contractor, NW Custom Deck did a terrific job. I always appreciate the lovely view and now I will even more so.

Rose House Art Show
How exciting, I'll be in the Edmonds Art Walk this month.! Yesterday I was pleased (though tired) to hang 16 of my paintings in the 102 year old Victorian Rose House at 555 Main St. The show will be there til about May 18 and will feature 4 other artists, including my friend Sharon who designs and hand hooks rugs/wallhangings and plays in other media as well. The link is to a previous post that has pictures of her art, as well as before pictures of our deck. Here are some of my paintings below..... I hope you can stop in for a visit. The opening night is April 16 from 5-8pm when the artists will be there, as well as wine and a bit of refreshment...

Congratulaions, Delorse, on your show at the Rose House. I wish it was closer so that I could come and see it. It's clear that you'll be spending lots of hours on your deck this summer. Let's hope it's a warm and dry one.

Thanks Paula, wish you could stop in too... about that deck, I've been thinking what a great "plein air" spot to paint or make art, and can't wait for a bit more warmth though, it's been solid rain for 2 days.
