Class at ESO, Mandalas....

Class at ESO in Belle Haven, Bill and Sandy.

Watercolor of Willis Wharf, I started this in class as a demonstration, They painted it too.

A mandala,  ginkgo leaves, acorns and moons.
Hi , well we made it thru the Hurricane MATTHEW.  Lost 6 trees,oaks mostly,  that is why I had acorns in the mandala. My class at ESO is finished, we had 4 weeks and it was lovely.  I will miss them this coming Tuesday. (our day of class).

The Eastern Shore Art League  is having our annual show. Opening night is Oct.22, Sat. From 5 to7 come if you can. It will be in the Onancock High School  and will continue for one week.

I have a class at Norfolk Botanical Garden on Sat. So it will be a busy day for me but a nice one.

I have been drawing mandalas for fun. It is relaxing. Have you tried it??
 The new brochures are out now for the Artisan Guild Holiday Tour 2016. Don brought  me some today.  I think he is going up and down  the whole ES delivering them. That show is Thanksgiving Weekend. I have 2 shows before that. Holy cow.

Well I had best start dinner. Talk to you soon, love to each of you, Diana

Painting on the porch with Sadie 

Sadie, napping 
Hi Everyone,  I have been painting.  New work in Lemon Tree Gallery in Cape Charles and new work in Red Queen Gallery in Onancock. I ordered 5 new brushes,rounds from Loew Cornell.  I always enjoy  playing with new brushes. I just finished painting the trees, since we had the trees cut I have really wanted to do this.

Sadie is doing fine, she and I saw 3 white tailed deer Thursday night at dusk, they were beautiful.  Sadie ran after them, I followed, she soon gave up. Thank goodness.

I start a new class at ESO in Belle Haven this Tuesday.  Wet in Wet. I am looking forward to this.  Well night ,  I am tired how about you, have a wonderful weekend, love, Diana

Monarch Butterfly Class and Enjoying the Backyard



Hi Everyone, These photos are from my class yesterday at  Norfolk Botanical Garden in Norfolk Va. Monarch and Flowers.  It was a sunny day so we could walk outside and see all the flowers in the Hummingbird Garden  ( right outside our window).
The wind has picked up here, Sadie and I are having  iced Tea  in our backyard.  Yes, she just stuck here nose in my glass. She is our Labrador and as you know always with me at home. Football
season started so John is watching that. I would rather enjoy  the hummingbirds, Spice bush Swallow Tail Butterflies, and few flowers back here.  There goes a yellow Sulfur butterfly!  Take care, love to each of you, Diana
