Coming up for Air...

...after being submerged by orchard work. Gasp, gasp...I did get help from Blanche. She is apparently a Turkish Angora (so soft and silky) who showed up one day at my doorstep, a starving and confused kitten, which was aggravated by the fact that she seems mostly deaf. Now that the other cats have adopted her, she's content. I still wonder how such a lovely cat got into my dusty corner of the world...it's a mystery...


Now, I'm getting back into my artistic practice.
<--I stitched on my textile "book"... 
and enjoyed Spring's blossoms. The apple tree went wild...


<--and the apricot tree looked lovely.






New leaves on the pomegranate trees are looking pinky red just before the red blooms come out. (Background done first with ballpoint pen. Drawing done with Prismacolor pencils)
I drew my sketching buddy's doll at Sketch Club. 
Yup, I'm just an ol' Spring Chicken!

I've heard that quite often white kitties are deaf - not sure why that would be. Blanche looks adorable and so content where she is. And apple blossoms - they're a long way off here.
