Great weather this time of year has made our flower garden SO happy!
Here the late afternoon sun yesterday makes drama as nearby shrubs cast shadows on the Black-eyed Susans!
The echinacea or purple cone flower is really putting on a show, too!
Snapdragons, above, and petunias are just glowing in the light! Some extra light is reflected from the light colored gravel too!
My painting class, 3 hours a week is still wonderful! Last week I worked on a landscape, and then finished it at home. "Autumn at the Lake" is 22x24 and for sale. $200.00. Acrylic on canvas.
Yesterday, I used my big brushes, stayed very loose and used a limited palette. The canvas was first prepared using a monoprint background...then I added my quilter. The quilt in the painting is also a good place to do a bit of collage with interesting papers....as is her sweater and the background.
I really love this one! 16 X 20, acrylic and collage on canvas. $300.00.
I have another quilter in process.....will post again when she is finished!
In addition, I have basted another low volume quilt top and have it ready to machine quilt on my antique Singer....back later with photos of that!
I have two great library books this week! Very different styles of writing, but both are wonderful!!!
Life is good! Now, where are those workmen who are supposed to be bring our new garage door???? The old one quit working (and was very noisy and creaky)....just when I was rushing to work on Friday!
