The piggy I framed and delivered and she loved it. I'm glad.
Of course here's Sadie, John brought her a chicken leg yummy last night. She adored it even hiding it and later taking it to bed (crate) with her at night.
Hope everyone has a great weekend. I've started a small cow painting. Next Saturday is Art on The Farm at the Barrier Island Center, a lovely art show,flower booths and local wine. Yes we have 3 great wineries here on the shore... so I need to paint ,Talk to you soon, love to you,Diana .

I did find out how to root rhododendron a few years ago. Very simple,really, just take a branch pull it down to the ground,hold it on the dirt and put a brick or rock to hold it there. It will develop roots and next year you can cut it off from the main plant and transplant it where you would like. This works well for hydrangeas too.
Hope you are getting to paint today.Tell me what you are painting.. Love to you,Diana

Here is a foxglove that was on the path to the door.. :) It was so gorgeous. I love them. Hope to paint it sometime!!!
Homecoming! Sadie and John waiting for me! It's always nice to be home.
Sadie taking a snooze on the trunk in the den--this is where Rudy ,our 19 year old cat likes to sleep so Sadie decided to try it out.
I just ordered some frames,can't believe it's Monday again. I need/want to straighten my art table out. I've just cleaned out my art bag. Sadie just got her first bath so she's wiped out. It almost wiped me out. Ha ha.. Hope you have a great week, love to you,Diana

Now Sadie is napping.:) Seems like it's the only time I have to get any painting done. Ha ha..but she is so much fun.except.. Anybody have any tips on how to get her to stop biting?? She's a sweetheart but thinks I"m her ma or sister and when she plays she chomps down on my hand.. yowl. As you know I'm a softy about hard discipline,so what am I to do... please-- advise would be great!
love to you,Diana
