New Orchid Watercolor

Here is my new orchid  I am working on.  One of the kitties knocked the orchid over ,but I have the stem of flowers in a vase. There is something  about  orchids that I just love. I drew it and started on the large blossom first.  I have enjoyed working on it and am going to do the negative painting around the green leaves so they will be blue.  We will see if it works, I thought about painting  another  orchid behind it what do you think?? Wishing each of you a lovely  weekend and Happy  Easter, love to you, Diana

Painting Dragons ,Tram ride with Friends

hi  eveyone.  Yesterday  I taught at Norfolk Botanical Garden.  They Are having a special exhibit, Lantern Asia, this display is made mostly of silk. We painted  dragons,elephants and butterflies from this. I demonstrated how to draw the dragons and elephants. It was fun and very different from our usual subjects.  After class 6 of us went on the tram ride around the display. We saw Cedar Waxwings eating holly berries, tulip trees, camellias as well as the wonderful dragon and Lantern Asia.
I was in the city so I took advantage of it and stopped into McDonald's Garden Center, wow, they were having an open house and so many people, dogs and flowers in one place. I loved on a yellow lab puppy there,naturally and then came home with orchids.. 2 for gifts, ok and one for me..they were gorgeous.   I needed some spring.

Today is our Craddockville Church Revival, I am making brownies. Soup,subs and then a beautiful service. Three nights... come.

Wishing everyone a beautiful Sunday, love to each of you. Diana

Sadie better, Heritage Festival. ...

Me dressed and ready for the United Way  Fund Raiser.
Crocus blooming in my backyard YAAaa...
Hi, last week was too busy for me! This week has slowed  down some.  I had the Heritage Festival at the  Eastern Shore Community College on Saturday. You can see some photos on my Facebook page. It was a lovely show and I sold 5 so that was good. I went to the United Way Opening on Friday  night ( before the other show). I gave a painting  to that. Bible study  on Monday night and a special service at church on Wednesday, made food for that, and framed 7 paintings, lost electricity for a day....some weeks are like that!

Sadie,our lab, got a good report from Dr.Bailey at the Greenbush Veterinarian Clinic this Monday.  She is infection free and only 2 more weeks of resting and then anything goes! SHE IS READY. ..

I haven't painted since the show Saturday,  I have to take a few days to rest up.I have done some sketching and Sadie  and I have really  enjoyed  seeing a few things blooming in the yard.  We can hear the frogs singing too, spring is coming, tell me what you are painting,love to each of you, Diana
