Japanese Garden in Watercolor in the works. .

Hi, today I have been working  on this watercolor  of The Japanese Garden  at the Norfolk Botanical Garden.   I did some pouring yesterday and put all 3 of my potato  masher on the wet wash. Can you see it at the bottom of the paper??

I think the right top is way too busy so I'm going to try to simplify it tomorrow. 
Sadie is coming along nicely. She was happily rolling in the backyard this afternoon.She and Cupcake, our kitty, have become buddies and this morning Cupcake was playing  with Sadies  ear while Sadie  napped. So cute!!! Sadie is our lab.

Hope you all are doing great,so sorry I haven't been blogging much lately.  I will visit you soon. Love to each of you Diana

Ps my class Saturday  was great 14 students and we painted what I am doing now. I will post a photo  soon!!

Painting Day lilies! !

 Day lilies from www.sterrettgardens.com .  Richard and Rikki gave these to me.

HI, I am still learning this tablet. This is what I am painting now.  The Sterrett Gardens had a presentation for the Garden  Club Tuesday. They gave me these afterwards and I have been painting  since.  You know day lilies only live one day but these have buds so each day it has been like opening a present to see what's opened.  These are cut. Go to www.sterrettgardens.com  to check out their website.  I'm going back for the 3rd one now. Hope u r staying xool, love to each of you. Diana

Luna moth watercolor and Sadies knee

Hi, I just finished my little  Luna Moth watercolor.  Sadie is doing well.   I took her to the veterinarian  yesterday  morning.  He said keep  her quiet  for a few more weeks  but she is doing good.  We were happy about that.
This is her knee and the incision.  Sadie is now 2 years old and a Labrador retriever. So no running is a challenge  but jist one day  at a time.   Love to each of you. Diana
