NBG Watercolor CLASS, Heritage Festival this Saturday

Add caption

Here is my CLASS at Norfolk Botanical Garden this past Saturday.  We painted pansies and dahlias and they turned out beautiful  paintings. We did the dahlia by drawing a mandala first. Using the center as the center of the flower and adding layers of petals which fell into place with the guide of the mandala.  After CLASS WE enjoyed  the beauty of handmade kimono, made from pieces of rice paper in every color.  Glorious. This is for Lantern Asia,an amazing  light and Art display.

This week I am getting ready for the Heritage Festival 10am to 3pm at Eastern Shore Community College this Saturday.  40 local artists, antique tractors,  By the Bay Alpacas,  so many things to buy or enjoy. Take care! Love to EACH of you,Diana

Egret and Bamboo

hi everyone,  here is what I have been working on.  I had a lovely  CLASS at Norfolk Botanical Garden last weekend  and started this White Egret and Black Bamboo  painting. I just painted the dark side and crosshatched it. Hope I like it if not I will  wet and then go darker. I took bamboo  but the garden had black bamboo in the Japanese Garden. One of my favorite  spots. It is so serene. I will post photos  from CLASS next time. Yesterday Eastern Shore Art League had a paint out in Onancock, Va. We all took dishes to share and at lunchtime had a feast, being with friends  and painting is a good time. Hope you all are warm, love to you, Diana ps Sadie, our lab has been very frisky today.

Blizzard Moans

well, we had a blizzard  here, day 4 of not getting out. As beautiful  as the snow is 12 inches, I am starting to hate it. I want to walk in the woods, we have shoveled the driveway but back roads are still bad. I have frozen some paintings,.....tomorrow it will be warmer, melting yeah! Stay warm and safe...Love to you, Diana
