Pink Roses Finished.

Pink Roses coming along

Pink Roses finished. Clay, our son brought them to me.
HI Everyone, here is the finished painting. Looking at the roses in the vase they were all the same height so I got the idea to paint them all in a line. I drizzled Permanent Rose in drips down the paper with hints of green and drew each one. I love flowers so very much. I'm afraid these are drooping so now but the petals are still gorgeous. The Christmas tree is very dry but smells so good and I don't want to take it down yet. How about you??

It's rainy today. Clay, our son has gone home. Laura, our daughter didn't get here this year for Christmas.

Sadie is sitting on the back porch wondering why I'm not playing outside with her. It's cold and raining.. I'll put on some beans for supper and do the dishes and wonder what to paint next. Tell me what you are painting!

Love to each of you , Diana

HORRORS and Roses

My new Rose Watercolor... beginnings...

HORRORS...Sadie , my dog, was eating this under my art table... I managed to get these pieces out of her mouth.

Do you know what it is?? A Bic disposable razor. I gave her some Maalox tablets and looked in her mouth, and have been watching her.  She is ok. All razors are there. My heart was in my throat. What can she get into next... I think she's had too much Christmas...

Here is my new roses painting, I started today. Clay, our son, brought me pink roses. They are starting to droop so I've got to paint fast now.

 Hope you are continuing to have a great Christmas/ Holiday. love to you,Diana

Newest Blue Crab Watercolor in the Works and THE Eastville Inn Opening~!

My newest blue crab, I've been working on this week.
HI~ I did a little drizzle of water and then color in the background and drew the crab after this was dry. I've still got to add a few more legs and finish him. It's been fun.

I just walked Sadie, our lab, around the backyard. She wandered into the woods but thank goodness did not bring me anything today(yesterday it was a smelly treasure ugh) and she came back pretty quickly.

I then walked into the nursery across the street but it was so cold I didn't dilly dally as my grandmother used to say. I was moving faster than usual. Picked up a few Ginko leaves and came home, there was a pine branch in the driveway so I''ll put that in the living room somewhere for the lovely smell.

I made chocolate chip cookies this morning but did them in bars. Funny they don't seem to taste as good. Ha.  What have you been doing today?? love to you,Diana

PS> Don't forget Come to The Eastville Inn tomorrow night, Dec. 20 anytime from 6-8pm I will be showing my work in this gorgeous restaurant.  Hope to see you if you are nearby. Thank you!!!

Eastville Inn One Woman Art Show

My art at The Eastville Inn in the main dining room.

More of my work there

Copper Creations Christmas Open House, my display there on Saturday.
HI Everyone. This Saturday I was at the Copper Creations Open House in Melfa with my racks. John helped me load and unload. We kept everything in the car because today I took my work to The Eastville Inn in Eastville,Va. for a month long One Woman Show. The opening is next Saturday and I wish each of you could come. It's from 6-8pm.

  The Eastville Inn is a Historical Building in the center of the town of Eastville.  It's a lovely place and a lovely restaurant. There is a beautiful old porch and of course the old brick sidewalks surround the building and an adorable herb garden in the back. I'm delighted to be there.

 So this week after resting for a few days I have to clean and buy all the Christmas presents. I'm not going to think about it now but just go lay on the heating pad with a cup of tea.

 Love to each of you. Diana

Copper Creations Christmas Open House This Saturday!! Dec. 13.

Copper Creations in Melfa,Va. is having their Christmas Open House here are some of my new originals for the show!! .

HI Everyone, I'm still working on the little rose painting. I hope to have it finished by Saturday. That is when Copper Creations Christmas Open House is. I've got baking to do for it. I always make a Fresh Apple Cake, some cookies, and some cornbread. Donna Drew has 2 kinds of soup, and every other artist brings food too, so come and munch and buy some art if you are nearby. Just to see you will be a treat. 10am-4pm Dec. 13.

My dear Sadie, our Lab is napping finally today. Its been rainy and cold outside so I played ball for awhile but not long enough. She has been trying to get my attention all morning. So far she's eaten a Halloween sock, a small bottle of powdered iridescent paint, and 2 plackers, the tooth pick/cleaners. I've pried them out of her mouth and she didn't swallow much. Thank goodness. I want to work on my rose painting.

Our Christmas tree is up and fat and short. I love it. But I don't know how much else I'll decorate, I have 2 more shows and am trying to paint as much as I can. Pictured above is the 5 new watercolors I have for this show, but I have to frame them. Anyway it's a blessing to have so many things coming up.  Hope to talk to you soon, love to each of you,Diana

Next show is Eastville Inn , Artwork there on Dec.14, Opening Dec. 20, 6-8pm, One Woman Show. Diana Davis.  I'll be painting a demo there too!!
