a lot of rain.....SO YEAH THANKFUL!!! I have been picking okra, onions, three cherry tomatoes, squash, Swiss chard, and green peppers galore, sweet banana peppers, and the malabar spinach, Despite the dry times we actually have a successful start this year. It is 11:41 pm and as I type this Skylar is laying beside me sleeping so soundly with the faint sounds of snoring. Bruce is sleeping and the dogs are beside me curled up for the night. All the boys are sleeping soundly awaiting yet only two days until the end of this school year. Since I suffer from severe back pain, I have had to stop and rest a bit here lately from all the laborious work. Well after many years have gone by I decided to return to my class I purchased in what I believe to be December of 2013. Here it is 2019, so Don't ya think its time to finish the class???? Yep I agree. So here I am finished up Week 6 of the 48 weeks by Donna Downey you can see the class here......48 Weeks I have certainly enjoyed myself. Donna makes you feel like you are right there in her studio and you just paint!!!! No worries of the blank page, just paint! I had never actually painted a poppy before until this class.....I just like to plant them, photograph them, and visually enjoy them....well now its paint them. Jewelee wouldn't move out of the picture so you see her feet and belly.
The colors #love
Enjoyed the whole process
Reminds me of our poppies in the fields of wildflowers
Can't you just see them dancing in the gentle breeze
the sun shining on them
the honeybees flowing by ever so gracefully and carrying pollen on their legs
This weekend Colten will be at Smithfield and we will be at The Tiny House Festival in the OBX. I am excited a tiny house festival can I hear a YES!!! I can't wait to look around in them....
Have a great rest of the week and if I don't make it back to blog again before the weekend have a good weekend.
