practice session

With my work schedule tight, there is no time to paint serious right now...but it is important to keep painting,.
Just to do fun things.. keep the brush moving.. It was warmer this evening, so before dark came, I planted some flower seeds in our Lasagna garden patch... we are hoping to grow a lovely cut flower garden...
Here is a bouquet for you... it is wonderful to have flowers blooming in the garden again...

my week in pictures

 Finding the Tree Peonies blooming in the back yard..was a treasure  at the beginning of the week.. we watched it open slowly.. each day wider...their fragrance was heaven
 Having lunch with my two sweet daughters... one planning a wedding in the fall... the topic of discussion over a marvelous salad.... and tulips to grace the table...how rich a day it was... 
 Especially playing with my grandson... each creative idea is a wonder...and joy
 whoops.. these guys just can't get it right... but a quick sketch one night of my cousins sheep in Maine.. an idea for a new painting...
 Longing to paint.. I keep my brushes and paints out ... they are always ready to dash some color on a page
Which finally today.. I tried to get this gorgeous flower on paper.. it sure is fun to try... and a good cup of tea... it was a wonderful week.. just picked a handful of lily of the valley.. oh the fragrance is amazing... 
Have a great week... enjoy the little things.. they are the best!!!!!!
