New Orchid Watercolor, Sadie sleeping, and Cupcake!

Orchid Watercolor. This is the one I started at The Eastville Inn Art Opening.

I got Sadie to nap after we played ball outside in the frosty weather.

Here is Cupcake. She is a talker and very sweet.
HI Everyone, I've been painting this afternoon. I've gotten out my orchid watercolor and finished it. I need to erase the pencil marks and frame it.  I took the photo at the Tropical House in Norfolk Botanical Garden.

 They are having a gorgeous orchid display and it's free to go into the garden for 2 weeks.. so go if you are nearby.

Sadie finally got tired after we played a lot of ball in the backyard. It's cold outside, I had 2 coats , gloves, and 2 scarves, to keep me warm. I looked like a walking balloon.

  Here is our Cupcake. She is much prettier than this. The photo is blurry.. but the markings on her face are lovely. Ok I did say she was the ugliest kitten I had ever seen ..but she isn't.

Hope you are staying warm. I'm going to go make some Christmas Decaf Starbucks. Talk to you soon. Love to you,Diana


  1. Your orchids are beautiful! I'm looking forward to Longwood Gardens' orchid show. Lots of pictures in my files to paint, but I always take many more.
    Sweet little Cupcake! She's a beauty!
