:: Dog days ::

I’d rather have roses on my table than diamonds on my neck.
— Emma Goldman

We actually had a wonderfully hot, humid day that was accompanied by warm gusts of wind — so wonderful to feel the soft wind on our bare skin! Bare skin, we have not seen here for quite awhile as the temperature has been somewhat on the cold side.

So few flowers that I have painted in my life that today, when I decided to paint these beauties that trump the steps of the backyard porch I thought that they would be easy… easy I said? Did you hear that? Humph! Well no, they were not… and when is painting easy? Drawing for me is easy, but painting? No way Jose -))) Still I had the courage to continue and that is good especially that I did not use any ink lines… which makes me uneasy in a way.

For those of you who are interested in painting or drawing with a group of people, Linda Drewry is still at it after 23 years. Here is this Tuesday’s location…

June 13 – Baie D’Urfe Town Hall for 10:00 am. There is a beautiful rock garden here, with ponds and water plants. The Town Hall building itself is charming, and there are usually sailboats moored in the bay. Highway 20, exit Morgan road to the end. I will be there!!!

Colours: Q. Gold, New Gambodge, Pyrrol Scarlet, Q. Rose, Pyrrol Crimson, Phthalo Blue
