Working on this dahlia painting. There’s a neighbor who has the most beautiful front graden. Tons of dahlias, sunflowers and even some veggies. It is full of life and it always restores my mood. These flowers have tons of nooks and crannies!
Spent the morning in my art studio. Got to get out my paints and get messy! I have a few ideas on what to do with these round canvas panels. Today, it was mirror ball time. It aint a party, till the mirror ball gets going!
This house painting is of my childood home in Syosset, NY. I lived there from 1st grade through college. I loved going in to NYC and driving out to Jones Beach or Cold Spring Harbor. We had great pizza and bagels nearby. Lots of fun memories.
We will be discussing “The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane” – by Lisa See. I really enjoyed this book – it really captures the life of Akah minority in China and how their way of life changed so quickly during the Revolution era. I recommend this book!
Art done in Procreate – I am learning more each day how to use this amazing art software. I have had MANY duds and I know that this is part of the process. I am happy with how this one came out. Source Image by Tess Pixy256 from Pixabay
Hummingbirds bring me such joy. For a little bird, they are surprisingly loud. I love when they stop for a few sips in my hummingbird feeder. It gives me a brief moment of joy. I can only imagine the impact of our poor air quality on their systems.
