Painting at the Show and Eggplant Beauties!
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
