I am taking an online class these days called Visual Quest, a Shamanic Painting eCourse with Pixie Lighthorse.

Buds & Blooms!!

Buds and blooms, after what was a long cold and snowy winter. Nature, awakening in its full beauty. It is so miraculous to see as buds begin to open up on the trees and the first blooms of the season have arrived.
