I mailed my daughter,Laura, 2 small paintings today for her shop Vintage Karma in Illinois. She liked my Frozen Chicken and Silly Moo. I did another Silly Moo and kept the first one for my upcoming shows.. but now she has one very similar and soon it will be up in Illinois. If you ever are around those parts go by and see her and say Hi!
Tell me what are you working on today,or do you have the I need extra coffee day too. love,Diana

I talked to Kendra last night and she said it looks like she's 3 weeks pregnant.. so lucky you --you get to hear me ramble on about this-(Forgive Me :)--. I'm so excited. We will be getting a little yellow lab puppy.You know how I miss my Daisy so very much and the new puppy won't be her but will be a loving precious companion!!! Talk to you soon, Diana

I came home feeling good and went to put stale corn chips out for the squirrels and birds and fell./slipped... Down the back steps. Yes. I told you natural grace is where? OH it hurt. Where you say-- my right leg truly went at an angle I thought only frogs could do.. and I could go on but you get the idea...So I've been grumpy as can be and hobbling around, sore, but I'm fine. no worries. Just letting you know where I've been..
Today I was growling at the watercolor paper and saw a seed pod I brought in last week, so I painted it just now and put 2 tiny hummingbird feathers to the right of it. I used my iridescent paint for the seeds and feathers as they both were shining.
I'm going to go read awhile. Do you have a heating pack? I think everyone needs one. Take a pillow case put inside it ,3 cups of inexpensive dried rice, you may add herbs that smell good if you like or not. Tie the opening of the pillowcase into a knot and zap for 2 minutes in the microwave. Test before you use this.. It could burn you-- so make sure it's not too hot. then place the warm bag anywhere it hurts.not on bare skin..I need to get busy and paint.I''ll rest first. Talk to you soon.love,Diana

|Watercolor in progress|
Here are the iris that I started at the paint out. These were in a large bouquet of mixed flowers Susan had fixed for us. My eyes only saw the iris.. It's not finished-- I'm just going to look at it for a few days.. and see what it needs. Any suggestions.. What are you doing this weekend? Any painting? love,Diana
