canna and friends

Another painting on Bristol.

I planted about a dozen Canna bulbs this year. They were so pretty!!

Until the dog trampled them. She was on a mission to find a bunny or a squirrel or whatever. Oh, well. I managed to rescue this one.

can of flowers

Hope everyone had a great, safe weekend. This is the second year I’ve missed the fireworks on Independence Day. Dobby, Lily and Luna HATE fireworks and all of our neighbors LOVE them.

So….I spent another year shut up in the back bedroom of the house with the TV up as loud as I could stand it. It helped to block out the POP, pop, WHIZ, pop, POP, BOOM.

Well, that and a little pill for the dog.

We asked our vet for something to get her through the week. I hated to dope her up but she was a mess without it. At least, it calmed her down. A little.

Speaking of POP … the garden is starting to really POP with color. I’ve posted a photo of the “models” for this painting over on my other blog.

This weekend, I experimented using Bristol paper instead of watercolor paper. I usually save the Bristol for ink only drawings but it held up really well with the watercolor.

It only buckled a little…nothing that can’t be fixed. And the colors are just as bold as using watercolor paper. I’ll definitely try this again.

flowers and birds

I picked up some flowers at the Farmer’s Market last weekend. I LOVE painting flowers!

The gulls on the driftwood is a little piece my father-in-law made years ago.
