In Wisconsin the weather changes daily. This week is a good example. It was 60 degrees on Wednesday and on Thursday we got over an inch of snow. Crazy right? People were wearing shorts and flip flops then expected to put their winter parkas back on. I’ve notice that for some, once the shorts come out they don’t go back in the drawer. If it is at least 40 degrees it’s time for shorts until Thanksgiving!!!
Not me. I’ve always been more cold blooded. I recall it snowing on my birthday which is in the middle of May. That was kind of a bummer. The unpredictability of weather here does get frustrating at times, but you get use to it. Let me point out that “getting use to it” does not apply to driving in it. Every first snowfall people still forget how to drive. Let me just say this…”we do not use our cruise control when it is snowing – never!” I know some won’t remember.
Anyway I had to stop thinking snow and start thinking spring. My absolute favorite time of year. So these adorable baby ducks caught my eye. I told myself they will be my next painting. The original photo was taken by #stillwaterranchmontana a company I follow on Instagram. They gave me permission to paint from their photos. ❤️❤️❤️
These baby ducks are a cross between Kahki Campbell and Blue Swedish. All I know is they are adorable with the cutest web feet that are black with orange tinted flesh between the toes. ❤️
So spring is coming I’m sure of it even though right now it is snowing. 😎
