Hanging the show.

I framed 15 paintings this weekend.  Today was delivery day at Norfolk Botanical Garden  for the show.   While Connie  was hanging the paintings I sold 2 .  I had never takenthe tram around the garden, so today I  treated myself. I  was in awe of the beauty. It was so much fun, and I took plenty of photos  to paint. However tonight I don't  plan on moving from this recliner except of course to go walk Sadie ,perhaps  we will here a Screech Owl.  Love to each of you. Tomorrow I am making Apple Cake for the reception. Love,Diana

I found a small piece of paper with the masa paper  already prepared  on it so I ─Ćid this orchid for the show.the masa gives it all the texture. I also went to the Onancock  Farmers Market today and seeing all the beautiful  colors of the fresh veggies  helped.  Talk to you soon. Love to each of you,Diana

Hi!  I finished my heron watercolor.  Now, I have started  a new painting with 2 butterflies,  a Monarch  and a Tiger Swallow tail.  This  has an angel wing begonia.  I am having a One  woman art show in Baker  Hall at Norfolk Botanical Garden for the month of September.   I am trying  to paint as much as I can so I will have many new pieces. I have a new series  of little owls to take as well as so many more.  My reception is September 3, Thursday.  Everyone's  invited. Hope you can come if you are nearby.  Time is 4-7pm.  I am excited. Spread the word and invite your friends.  There is a fee to get into the garden, but you can enjoy the gorgeous  place while you are there.  Thank you all for your support, it means so very much to me!! Love to each of you, Diana

New Heron Watercolor and Sadie


I some times wonder if I will ever totally learn this tablet. I love the ease of having it here with me while John watches tv. Ah well. Sadie is supposed to be reating for 2 weeks. This is harder for me than her. She is doing ok.  Here is my start for this heron painting. I am putting Japanese iris behind him, and have changed the drawing of them.  I hope everyone has a great weekend. Love to you, Diana

Vegetable Still Life and My Sadie

hi, Here is Sadie,our lab. She went to the doctor  today. She has an infection of her incision. She over did it at the drs. Sadie gets so excited she leaps and jumps and I am on the other end of the leash trying to control her. But she has an antibotic and needs to rest, and will be fine.

I tried to post the painting first but am still learning this tablet.  I went to this lovely vegetable stand near Harborton, Va.  Eva grows and makes everything  there, crusty bread ,soups,all kinds of fresh organic veggies. I used some of them to paint.  These are Dana, my nieces Sunflowers, gorgeous. I decided  to do the checkerboard but stopped  midway when I liked it. I did not paint each black  square.

My class was really great Saturday. The garden was so beautiful and everyone did beautiful sunflower paintings. Thank you all.

Talk to you soon,love to everyone, Diana
