daylight savings time is too exhausting to try to understand .... spring forward why?

hi!
i'm still a bit giddy from nine days away, day light savings time, long car drives, and my art on the cover of that book..... read my last post for more info on that!! ...... the bottom left card is mine ..... inspired by the artist mondrian ..... 

so, today is the tenth of march .... and i had done NO art this month ... that's no way to get through my 100 canvases this year!!! so i got one done today ..... 
this is my 21st canvas of the year, the first of this month ..... i wrote about it here on flickr .... 
it's a theme i've been exploring .... you can see other heartstring paintings like it here ......
my sweet husband and i had a big discussion about this 'theme' .... basically? he doesn't get it.... he asked if they were growing ...no, someone hung them there ..... it ended with me telling him he was missing the bit of romantic you need "to get it" .... i then told him that i have sold four heartstring paintings ..... so now he's ok with me continuing to explore the theme ...ha ..... 

have you been artsy while i've been away? i've not been blog hopping in ages ..... tell me what you've been doing! 

ps.... my title had nothing to do with my actual post....oh well.....

I "get" that I like it. Hearts left hanging is a theme I know all to well.
