Frogs and Roses
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
