Love Equals Love

For years, I’ve had a letterpress design of two hearts with an equal sign between them. I titled it Love Equals Love, and sold it online in black and white and red and white. Today, with the equal marriage decision by the US Supreme Court, I turned the design into rainbow colors. Here it is, with a link to where I offer it online at cafepress.

The Lazuli Buntings and Western Tanagers are some of my favorite birds to watch in my garden in Montana.

Spring – almost

Scary climate change making Montana too warm and dry this winter, but it is feeling like spring. Here’s a painting from my portfolio. The birds are checking out all the bird houses in my yard. This painting is a small oil on canvas. Alice Flynn

My Birthday Today and Jane Austen

I’ve spent my birthday today watching old movies, including a production of Northanger Abbey. So, I still have Jane Austen on my mind. Here is another of my watercolor ACEO portraits inspired by Jane Austen.

Esther In Winter painting by Alice Flynn

I have not been blogging much since spring, when I suddenly found myself in the Intensive Care Unit of the local hospital with a life-threatening blood clot in my leg. The skilled people at Bozeman Deaconess Hospital saved my life. Turned out to be May-Thurner syndrome (yes, i had to google it, too). I woke with my left leg twice the size of my right, and from toes to hip, it was purple. Drove myself to the Emergency Room and experienced my jugular being cut open and a blood clot filter threaded into my body.
I was also dealing with Trigeminal Neuralgia at the time (google has lots of answers about what that is) and now the TN is in remission.

It is good to be alive and currently pain free!

Yesterday I spent three hours in my yard and garden getting everything ready for winter. The snow is on the mountains and will be in our valley soon.

Treasure every day and look for the beauty and kindness around us. Below is one of my paintings, titled Esther In Winter.  – Alice Flynn

Before Snow Flies

I’m tidying up the yard before winter sets in. I have only the pond pump and hoses to gather and put away. I will make cuttings from the leggy red geraniums to pot up and root over the winter. Here is a watercolor I created some years ago of a thistle, a traditional symbol of Scotland.
