I'm teaching a class on roses on Saturday at the Norfolk Botanical Gardens. Their roses are magnificent. Here's the entry to their rose garden.. Yes, I'll take photos Saturday. My thoughts for class is everyone do a large rose and if we have time do a pour with some long stem buds. (I may reverse that).Here is "Rose"my watercolor. I went to the florist and went thru every rose they had. Yes.. it took me an hour. I found two roses I considered perfect, or close enough, and bought just those two. Ha Ha.. They had even let me go thru their cooler in the back room to choose the roses.. The Right Touch in Nassawadox,Va. Well I came home and painted "Rose". What we do for our art!!! ha ha.
I'm sorry to say we ate the eggplant before I painted them. Ratatouille. It was delicious..I ate it all, no hubby doesn't like it.. but I did take photos of the eggplant.
On to the next painting,first I have to clean up the leaves,vines, and wild persimmons from the art table.The puppies haven't been born yet and I've held myself back from calling.. to see how the mother is doing.. I'll let you know when I do and if I can I'll get some photos of the baby asap. talk to you soon, Diana

Pictured above is a hummingbird painting I did this week. The Ruby Throated Male Hummer in my painting has iridescent paint on him as well as gold metallic watercolor paint.The background is a pour with some of the gold . Today was one of those days I didn't get to paint as much as I had hoped. Our kitchen stove broke down so we had to get a new one today , and my new eyeglasses came in and I went to get them. The frames are red.. a big change but I'm tickled with them especially because I can see so much better!!! I had not realized I needed new glasses.
Wishing you all a peaceful weekend. The season here is turning slowly to fall which is delightful.I've enjoyed my walks this week. talk to you soon,Diana

I've got to paint the eggplants today.I've had to move them into the fridge to keep them fresh and noticed dear hubby has pushed them around so-- one is upside down.. Soon--- I must move with speed! Ha.. I don't move fast.. :) anyway.
I had some of my wonderful patrons come to the show and some dear students..one from Hampton( a 2 hour drive) WOW.. Sold a little.
I had the monarch drawn mostly before I got to the show and painted there for awhile( I taped the watercolor paper onto the cover of my John Pike Palette,then used that as a little desk),I finished it this morning. I found a beautiful leaf from our crepe myrtle tree and painted that in it as an accent.
Today I've just got back from my walk and gathered 3 mushrooms,2 acorns and 2 day lily plants from our woods. Will they go into an eggplant painting?? I'll see.(just kidding).. but on to the eggplants.. talk to you soon,Diana
