HI, Well most of this weekend I've been painting little mini Eastern Shore landscapes..now today I've started a new painting of butterflies.It will be two Monarchs and a Tiger swallow tail with a vine. I will go out and pick some tomorrow.I know what I want-- the red/orange trumpet vine and I have one growing in the backyard. I'll have that coming down the other side of the painting,plus I need to tighten my butterfly drawings a bit. I'm looking forward to painting them although they take lots of time.. I hope to have this ready for the Red Queen Opening!
A sad note.. The Bear and Cub Coffee Shoppe closed on Saturday for good. It was a lovely place of warmth,good friendship and lovely coffee. I went by Saturday and had one last cup of Hog Island Coffee with them. I'll miss that wonderful place as I know so many will.
Hope you had a nice holiday weekend. talk to you soon,Diana
