Beginnings of An Orchid in Watercolor

New Orchid beginnings 

HI! Here is the orchid I bought yesterday. It has a sweet smell and tiny roots. I started drawing it this morning.  I still have a lot left to do. There is another bunch of orchids much lower that I want to incorporate into the painting and maybe a hummingbird. You know me and hummingbirds. The first one came today, a male to my feeder. Just him.

Hope you all have a great weekend. Love to you,Diana

Norfolk Academy Art Show Delivery Day!

Here's my work. I just delivered it and am back home.Norfolk Academy is an hour and 15 minutes away, across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel--which is 17 miles long. While I was there I went to Starbucks and got a lovely Red Eye Coffee. I then went to McDonald's Garden Center in Va. Beach.  I ended up with an orchid. ahhh I couldn't help myself. It's pale yellow and has a sweet scent., so soft and lovely. I want to paint it before I kill it.  Needless to say I am totally wiped out. I must have the energy level of a snail. Please know--- you are invited to the show. Thank you all!!! love to you,Diana  Tell me what you are working on!!

Class and Happy Easter

HI HAPPY EASTER~!   Here is a photo of the gorgeous cross decorated by the ladies of my church, Craddockville United Methodist in Craddockville. The flowers come from all over the neighborhood.  I enjoyed the beautiful service this morning and the meaningful message.

Here's Norfolk Botanical Garden, with a few of the 9 students we had yesterday at my class. It was a beautiful day and we painted tulips and daffodils. I'm so tired today. Wishing you a lovely,blessed weekend. Love,Diana

Lost in a Daffodil

Diana's daffodil, just painted.
Hi !! I couldn't help myself. This has been sitting on my art table. So I just stopped everything except of course the sip of coffee, and drew it and painted it. It's Fabriano  Hot Press 140 lbs. I love leaving the watermark of the paper on the painting. I truly seem to lose myself in the drawing and the painting, just experiencing the beauty of the gorgeous daffodil.. do I really have to go do the dishes now? love to each of you,Diana  I'm going , I'm going...

New Kune Kune Piglet Watercolor and ESAL

Here is the beginning of a new Kune Kune Puglet from Perennial Roots.

Hi Everyone, today I went up to the Eastern Shore Art League Gallery where we took down our Spring Member Show. I didn't sell anything but they did sell a few so that was good. Monelle went with me and we enjoyed seeing some other artist friends, including Bentley who is Lois's dog. Lois sometimes brings him along to spend her day at the gallery. Can you see Sadie there, she'd eat or chew on everything!!! ha ha.. Have a great weekend. love to each of you,Diana

To Feel the Brush Move

I just lost the post. Blasted. ah... well I was just telling you about The Stage Door Gallery in Cape Charles,Va. having an Art Opening tonight. I have 5 new paintings there. The subject of the show was a lovely poem about the Eastern Shore, oysters, water, and the beauty we have here. It will be a lovely show. It lasts for 2 months so you have time to stop in if you can't make it tonight. I'm afraid I can't.

The week has been busy with my Bible Study, Drs. appointments, and errands. I just need to go paint now. To feel the brush in my hand and the smooth glide of it on the paper.

Wishing each of you a wonderful weekend. Still check out Facebook to see photos of my newest work. I'll get this working soon. I hope. love to each of you,Diana
