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.

Boats in Landscape



Here is the boat landscape. Today I taught  a class at Norfolk Botanical Garden.  Calla Lilies, gorgeous huge white ones,everyone did a beautiful job. My class  has their beautiful paintings hanging in the Education Hall.  I am so proud of them.

The loggers are just about done with the cutting in our yard. They are very sweet men. It is amazing how many birds are coming into the cut trees. I am trying to see the good ,more light....

I ll show you photos from class soon,have a great weekend, love to each of you, Diana, ps thanks for being there for me.

Landscape in Watercolor

Started a landscape, yesterday I drew it and today I  have started the painting. 

Sadie and I both have been upset today.

The loggers are here. John and I chose to do this but it tears at my heart each time I hear the saw ,then crash. The 2 cats sat on my art table as I painted, Sadie panted and panted. I talked to a dear friend  tonight and he recommended looking at the good that will come out of it. John suggested planting sunflowers, I would like that.

I am teaching at Norfolk Botanical Garden this Saturday, Calla Lilies will be the subject.

Talk to you soon, more painting with Sadie tomorrow, love,Diana

Art and Music on the Farm

Art and Music on the Farm  at Barrier Island Center  was yesterday, these are a few of the new paintings I took.


Hi, it has been  a busy week, well few weeks, I finished and framed 13 new watercolors for Art and Music on the Farm at Barrier Island Center  in Machipongo, Va. That show was yesterday,  it was a lovely day, I sold 11, visited with customers /friends. I was delighted to be near Perennial Roots Farm, and got to hold and kiss one of their little piglets.  Our son is home for a few days, which is a blessing. It is grey today but I did take some photos for painting,...of my parents backyard ..have a wonderful weekend, love to you,Diana
