We'll Sing in the Sunshine by bbrunophotography

Oops. I've been an absentee blogger for the past month. No earthshaking excuses, other than I caught a bug that's been circulating our community. Oh, and I signed a contract with a fantastic art licensing agency who happened to run across my work online and liked what they saw. It's been a whirlwind of activity, sending them samples for their presentations, and anticipating upcoming trade shows. In the midst of it all, I've spent time with our four grandkids, baked and ate too much, and kept one eye on our backyard for signs of Spring.

It's time to dig out of winter (if only our temps would rise and the rains would stop) and look towards a long-awaited warmth. Didn't I just say this same thing a few months ago? Seems this year has flown faster than any other...or is it just me?

Today's Friday Showcase is all about yellow. Yellow is the sunshine I haven't seen in days. It's the excitement that accompanies a seasonal shift, and the reminder that yet another Summer waits on the horizon. I've found six Etsy artists who use the color yellow beautifully. I hope their artwork will warm your weekend!

FRIDAY SHOWCASE: Tangerine Tango

Multitasking by bbrunophotography
If you're knee-deep in snow like my friend Sue from Colorado, or fighting the winter blahs in a rainy corner of the world, take heart. Color has arrived!  Tangerine Tango--that warm, vibrant orange-red, chosen as Pantone's Color of the Year--is showing up everywhere, from decorative pillows and clothing to furniture and art. 

Today's Friday Showcase features six Etsy artists who are incorporating it into their work in such beautiful ways, I just had to share. Enjoy the tour!
