Emma and Austin 
Hi everyone, I still don't understand the typing on the blog with this tablet.  Maybe one day.This is a photo  I took at Emma's wedding. I was thinking about  you Maywyn, remember you said to get a picture of the cake. Emma is my sister's daughter. I took plenty of photos so look at my Facebook page too to see.

I have taught 2 classes since we talked. Pictured in the middle  is a group of nurses enjoying watercolor for the first time. They  did great. I taught a series, hummingbirds, pouring, eggplants and chickens classes, too.

Today from 3 to 6 pm I will  be gathering with a group of artists/friends at the Red Queen Gallery in Onancock for our opening.  I have 4 new watercolors up there. Have a wonderful weekend, I am picking up a frozen pizza on the way home.  Love to each of you, Diana

Seaside Antiques in Wachapreague, A Wedding, Painting

I love this one. It is on 300# paper too.

Hi everyone, I am sleepy, almost bedtime, so I am spelling terribly,Ha..oh well.
I finished my Gladiolus watercolor and started  a painting of a Carolina Wren  and Cattails. I just taught a class at Norfolk Botanical Garden and they did not have any Cattails so I searched all over for some.  Found some at the bank, can you believe  it. They were so kind and let me cut all I wanted. Ha ha, I got my feet soaked in the cool mud... it did feel good on such a hot day.Sadie,my lab got over heated yesterday, it was so warm and we had been walking, she rested and was ok. It scared me truthfully, she was breathing so hard for a long while.
This weekend is my sister's daughter, Emma, wedding. I am driving my mother, this will be all weekend with all the dinners ...John will be here at home with  Sadie.  Love to you, Diana  ps the flowers  are from our yard  and my Aunt Pat s. I got to visit today. Check out Seaside Antiques in Wachapreague if you are nearby.

Still working  on this...

Hi, so hard to believe  summer is zooming by and August begins tomorrow. I am working on this watercolor of gladiolus and added the butterfly today.it needs  another  short flower on the empty side. The pink phlox are in our backyard and the butterflies really love them. I enjoy watching so much.The sunflowers  are in a field near Quinby, Va. I was up in Wachapreague  (near there) this week. It was such a treat to see them, I took  lots of photos  to paint  later. Wishing  you a wonderful  August, love to you, Diana

Just keep painting

hi, I can't believe it is July already.  A friend of mine and I went to Evas for coffee one day. She has a tiny ,precious farmstead near Harborton, Va.  Her flowers that day were gorgeous, I brought some home, gladiolus were my favorite in the bouquet so I started  this painting. 
I had a show in the Red Queen Gallery. It was a dud,sold only a tiny one,ah well.On to the next show,right.
Sadie is doing great,well she did just try to eat something she wasn't supposed to but that is normal.The kitties are,doing fine too.my flowers are beautiful.  I am trying to root some hydrangea for the empty land.
I hope you are having  a wonderful summer.  Love to you.Diana

New Hummingbird Watercolor & Pig to come

Add caption

I am writing this on the tablet. Funny  I never seem to get the photos sized right or something, ah well. We have been working on the yard.me as much as I can. I planted 18 Loblolly pines across  the front of the empty cut land . Wat and Chris worked 2 days to get logs out of the side yard and clean up the yard  and it looks so much better we helped too,so I have been sore,ha ha. I haven't painted much this week. I did sketch a pig today. I will start her tomorrow,this is Roxanne she was behind Corner Bakery the day I painted in the window at Red Queen Gallery. There was a special parade of animals in town. Goats, black lab,and Roxanne  was in the parking lot. You know how I love animals. I was in heaven, so here is her photo with me. Hope you had a nice weekend.  I heard  a Great Horned Owl this morning.  Love to you,Diana

Trees and Thankful and Heartache

Hi,well here is some of the cuttings. We have land on each side of the house that is cut totally,but there are trees around  the house just fewer than I had thought  in some places.
but I need to focus on the blessings,  the men who worked here were so sweet and worked hard to save trees, each one was dear. I feel like they are my friends. And my other friends gave me tons of plants for my garden, look how pretty it is. Hummingbirds everywhere,a whippourwil in the woods tonight. So I have a lot to be thankful for.
