Hurry up and Paint...

HI, I'm rushing. I finally decided what to paint. Remember earlier this summer I actually held a Screech owl.. So I thought one of those and the leaves have been so gorgeous so I added those, and here it is the  beginning of the watercolor. A pour first in autumn colors, then the drawing of Maple Leaves and the little owl. Now to paint.Good grief I'm running out of time.. This is my 2nd entry to the ESAL show,which is this coming Saturday. Delivery is Thursday. Yes I have to frame them too.

 As you can see the Help(Sadie, our dear lab puppy) is not cooperating. I put the flea medication on her back and she squeezed under the couch. She had earlier in her puppydom torn the underlining...The tail really makes me laugh hanging out like that.. I've got to go get back to the painting. I'll start on the head of the owl. Worse comes to worse, I can stay up one night to finish the painting..

 love to each of you,Diana

 Please tell me what you think..at this stage I feel like tossing everything.. thanks!!!


  1. Dear Diana, lovely work. It's important to listen to our heart, when we make paintings, isn't it? Please take care, keep your own pace and have fun in drawing like a little child. Pass my best wishes to your doggy!
    Best wishes, Sadami

  2. Sadie's tail is a painting. :)
    Your watercolor is coming along well. Will there be more leaves?

  3. I think it looks awesome! Don't toss it!!!

  4. Dear Diana - this will be absolutely gorgeous. You are sure off to a fantastic start. As for Sadie - she certainly makes me laugh...great picture!!

  5. You are really working under tight time constraints!!! The owl and leaves looks good, and I am sure you will have a beauty finished in time.
    I think Sadie's tail looks hilarious!
    Hugs to you and your assistant!

  6. No, no, don't toss yet . You know how the beginning , middle and end of a painting always does the same thing. That mid way is a real challenge as we think ' oh it's not coming out the way I thought' , although yours right now looks way good.. Keep going , I think you'll fall in love with it and the end.. hugs , BJ


Please comment, I enjoy them so much!
