Too Much To Do,Just Let Me Paint

Checkerboard Emu, 8x10 at Red Queen Gallery in Onancock now.

ESAL Christmas Party, Gertraud, Ivana and Evangelina

Debra and Monelle and more ESAL
HI, Yesterday I went to the Eastern Shore Yacht and Country Club in Melfa,Va. for lunch.. the location of the ESAL Christmas Party. We brought gifts for a Chinese Exchange after lunch. I took a potted plant I just wrapped with whatever tissue paper I had and reynolds wrap and a silly bow. It was the most popular present there.. it got so many laughs.. I had nestled into the plant 2 beers ( that was the desirable part).. It was a fun time and I enjoyed being with everyone there.  The present I brought home was a large bird --decoration about the size of a basketball. Sadie,our puppy,
thought it was delightful, she leaped around it and barked, until I had to hide it..Here she is with a sock, she's hiding she thinks.

I finished my silly emu watercolor, putting checkerboard in the background and a splatter of red . After the party I drove up to the Red Queen Gallery and left 6 new watercolors for the Second Friday opening this Friday. The Emu is one of the paintings there now.

 Saturday is the Christmas Open House at Copper Creations Studio in Melfa which will be the last Art Show of the year for me.

 Time is flying by and soon with be Christmas. I've got so much to do for it and really would just like to paint and sip coffee with Sadie by my side and the lights of the Christmas Tree on in the background. ah ..well.. maybe later today.

 love to each of you! Diana


  1. Love your emu, Diana! What a wonderful expression. :)

  2. You've captured the emu attitude perfectly!
    I'd like to see a Sadie with the sock painting. She's adorable.

  3. Such a fun post, Diana!! Sadie is adorable, as always, and I like her hiding spot. The emu is wonderful! Merry Christmas happenings at your house, for sure!

  4. I hear you Diana! Time is always such an issue at this time of year - but still you have done a lovely painting! And Sadie looks so sweet with the sock. No sock is safe in our house either - not even if it is on a foot! ;0)

  5. Diana, thank you so much for your kind compliment on Roxie! I appreciate it so much.

    Hugs to you and Sadie :)
