Watercolor Class Tomorrow and Glads from Garden Show
Hi!Last Saturday my mother and I went to the Mid-Atlantic Home and Garden Show in Virginia Beach.
The wheelbarrow photo and the watering pots photo were both taken there. We were truly expecting a large flower experience. She had been before and said it was AMAZING, so many lovely flowers, the smell taking you to spring but we were disappointed.
The entry was lovely with a beautiful art display (Kathy Stacier's, of Kathy stacier-artist.blogspot.com,watercolors were beautiful). A flower booth as well as some more booths also in the entry but inside ... there was a small room of flower gardens and the rest of the displays were Jacuzzis and refrigerators.. windows and home improvement things. Not a spring experience we were hoping for.. oh well. I did get a lovely bunch of cut flowers.. and an orchid.
So this week I've been painting gladiolus from the garden show.Still not finished with it yet, hope the last buds hold out!
Tomorrow is my adult watercolor class at The Bear and Cub Coffee Shoppe in Pungoteague.There is still time to sign up. Call 442-7222 and tell Grace you can come. Hope to see you there. I'm gathering flowers for the class and getting ready.For more info look at the right hand side of this blog and look under- Upcoming Art Classes & Workshops Available ..
Talk to you Soon! Diana
