Today I went to a paint out near Wachapreague Va., a small fishing village on the Atlantic Ocean. The home we visited was amazing,right on the gorgeous marsh with a view of Hog Island, a small barrier island off the coast.Here is the view from Laura's back yard.. beautiful isn't it. Definitely a painting and here are a few of the ESAL members gathered in her sunroom. We had a wonderful time, I showed them photos of the new puppy coming and the food --we all bring something!..was as usual- very different and wonderful. Ps. A paint out is a gathering of the Eastern Shore Art League with each member bringing a dish of food and lots of talk,coffee and hopefully some painting. Lots of painting today,no I didn't turn out anything but I did enjoy it and I have lots of photos for reference!!!.. talk to you soon, love,Diana

Here is the little daffodil I painted from flowers from Mama and Daddy's yard. I started the painting all wrong but needed to paint so I just drew a daffodil and painted it then added more.. I like the way it did come out. The next photo is the beginnings of a mini Eastern Shore Landscape watercolor.. It's Onancock. I took this reference photo last year. I'll go back to that after I finish saying Hi!
The puppies will go for their first vet check this week. They'll be 3 weeks old. Time is flying by!! My son is coming home this weekend. Daddy is doing ok. My sister is coming tomorrow to see him and us. Thank you all for your concern for Daddy and your love and support . It means so very much.
talk to you soon,love,Diana

Yesterday I went to the Stage Door Gallery in Cape Charles. March Madness is the new show. Only paintings $100 and under for this show. I took down quite a few and while I was signing the paintings into the show, a lady from Portsmouth bought 3 of my little landscapes..I'm now all out of mini landscapes. I'm tickled.. I left my Silly Moo and 7 more little paintings. The opening for the show is this Saturday night from 6pm-8pm.
I will work on the camera.. We had some bad news--we found out last week, my Dad has the beginnings of Alzheimer's We're all pretty shook up as you can imagine. Life is sometimes so hard, isn't it. Enjoy every moment you've got and Drink green tea.. love,Diana

HI, after church this morning I went over to Mama and Daddy's for coffee,came home made lunch and cleaned up my art table and now took a short walk. Yesterday I realized I hadn't painted all day .I had helped John with yard work. So I did a wash of lots of colors on a sheet of paper and put 3 potato mashers directly down on the paper as it dried. It formed some interesting patterns. I 'll try and take a photo of it and show you tomorrow. It'll be fun to figure out what to paint on that! What is the silliest thing you have used on your watercolor painting?? Tell me!! ha ha.. I suppose vodka was my silliest..drizzle it on and it acts like alcohol.. leaving a round spot.. try it..
Here is some daffodils from last year. I will teaching a class at ESOwww.esoartscenter.orgon Thursday of this week on painting daffodils in watercolor. I'll take a large bouquet of Mama's flowers from her yard. Living in the shade of the pine trees I only get a few and they aren't blooming yet.:)
Well take care and enjoy the rest of your weekend. love,Diana

I've been working on the little pansy painting. I'll check it over again in the morning to see if I missed anything. I'm glad to be finished.
Haven't heard any news from the puppies. They are now 13 days old. I have not seen them in person. Kendra wanted to wait until they were 2 weeks old for anyone to come visiting.. Is it tomorrow??? Maybe this weekend.. I'm wondering if their eyes are open. I'll bet they are. I've looked up on youtube --yellow lab puppies 6days old and saw what they are doing--puppies their age were doing.... so adorable. If I do get to go see them soon you know I'll take lots of photos.. I may have to start painting puppies. :) talk to you soon,Love Diana

Last night about dusk we had critter visitors. The kind I don't want to come back when Rudy or the new pup are outside. First a raccoon came by, a large one, after he had some cat food , a red fox took a turn, and then a rather large possum wattled by and ate. No cat food out there tonight.. they were not afraid of me. I went out the backdoor and they turned as if to say.. oh it's you. so what.. Wish I could have taken photos.. but it was dark and then darker. The pansies still need finishing but I must cook some dinner. talk to you soon, Diana
Rudy,our kitty, is doing better and yes I'm shoving the pill down her throat pretty well..
