Wiped Out!! and Last of NBG SHOW!!

Hydrangea Bean Vine at Norfolk Botanical Garden. 

HI! Sorry I haven't been blogging lately. I've truly been exhausted from getting my show up at Norfolk Botanical Garden. I painted so much and now I have a show coming up with Eastern Shore Art League and need to paint and can't seem to get one going. I do have a flower painting that I"ve been working on. You can see it on Facebook but it is too small for this show.  But one afternoon when I was wiped out Beth called and said come have a boat ride and Charlie her black lab went too. It was so delightful and truly I felt so much better afterwards. No Sadie didn't go this time.  I'm still trying to take it easy on her knee, after her surgery.

Sad to say my show at NBG is almost over. This weekend and Monday and Tuesday are the last 2 days. I've sold 5 and 3 before I got to the show so it's been good. Hope if you get a chance you will go by and see it. Baker Hall, 53 original watercolors all by me. No wonder I'm zonked still!!! Have a wonderful weekend and please check out my Facebook Page when you get time too. love to all, Diana
Beth and Charlie took me for a lovely boat ride!

Happy Sunday!

HI, Happy Sunday! Here is a photo from Norfolk Botanical Garden. This little office is one of the stops on the tram. I was at NBG yesterday teaching an OWL painting class in watercolor. We had a good time. I enjoyed it so much. Nine students.  I also hung 3 new 8 x 10s in my show in Baker Hall. Please come if you can--- hope some of you can see it during September while my art show is open.

I'm exhausted but planning on reading this afternoon. Sending my love to you. Diana

Me on the tram, the day I brought the paintings. It was a lovely tour of the garden. I enjoyed it so much!  

The Baker Hall at Norfolk Botanical Garden

Some of the 49 paintings and my dear friend Beth, she helped so much.

Some more of my paintings and my dear friend Renee , she helped so much too!
The Art Opening was lovely, Everyone was so helpful getting it set up. I couldn't have done it without, Beth, Renee, Mama, Dallas, Daniel, Courtney, Bob,David. Ann Henry. Thank you all so much and Connie who hung the paintings and is in charge of the show. Thank you. The show continues thru the month of September. I personally would go early, the Butterfly House is open until Sept. 20th. and I'd go see that as well. You know I love butterflies and nature so much. There are my original paintings of the Japanese Gardens, Butterflies, Hummingbirds, Sunflowers, Fresh Veggies, Day lilies, Owls, Tree Frogs,Orchids,Herons,and so much more in this show.

I sold a total of 5 paintings so far. I'm pleased. Hope to sell some more. It was so much work. I truly painted my heart out and have put everything in my heart into the show.  49 original watercolors..My hope is that people will see the beauty of that wonderful place, Norfolk Botanical Garden and God's beauty, too, thru my art.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend. Thanks so much for supporting my work, love,Diana

Hanging the show.

I framed 15 paintings this weekend.  Today was delivery day at Norfolk Botanical Garden  for the show.   While Connie  was hanging the paintings I sold 2 .  I had never takenthe tram around the garden, so today I  treated myself. I  was in awe of the beauty. It was so much fun, and I took plenty of photos  to paint. However tonight I don't  plan on moving from this recliner except of course to go walk Sadie ,perhaps  we will here a Screech Owl.  Love to each of you. Tomorrow I am making Apple Cake for the reception. Love,Diana
