Labor day has been windy and warm here. I wanted a photo of two zinnias who are doing well in spite of a hot summer. Even holding them, the photo is still a bit on the shaky side.

I spent time in the studio....maybe I WILL paint those zinnias yet.... first though I wanted to organize my acrylic paints.

I am less "at home" with acrylics than watercolors, have struggled to find the brand I like best. Now, I think I am settling on GOLDEN acrylics. They have great quality paints and the lids don't break as easily as others. Here, the project was to put a dab of paint from the tube on top of the lid, so I can tell at a glance what color it will be.

In addition to zinnias, I have plans to paint a dish of strawberries....I have the inspiration and the photo ready. A small 5x5 canvas will be large enough.


What's for dinner???? Grilled chicken and a side dish of herbed spagetti squash from Emeril Lagasse.

We had grilled chicken tonight! I would love to try the spaghetti squash. I've always wondered how it would taste! Love your pretty flowers! ♥
