I apologize about the date and time, it is on the camera, although it is obviously incorrect. It's kind of like getting the VHS time set a few years back!
I really try hard to write a good blog. Really hard. I proof read and proof read to make sure I have it right, and try to be alert for mistakes that the spell checker will not catch. (hear/here, rode/road) Well, two days after I published my last blog, my sister emailed me to let me know I'd made a mistake.
Hmmmm, let me restate that. Two days after I posted my last blog, one of sisters (who will remain unnamed) gleefully let me know that I really blew it. I gave you a "peak" into my studio. Oh, please......*head hanging in shame* Sigh.
Well, sisters do keep score, so she's ahead for now, but, I will be watching her very carefully! Sew, hear is a peak at our thermometer! (I just couldn't resist!)
This was a few days ago, before we had several days of drizzles that gave us almost 1/2 inch of rain. Yes, not much, but precious for us at this time of year. It makes me think of my friends Cynthia in Colorado, and Melody in Ontario. Cynthia is a wonderful artist, working in clay, paint and textiles. Melody works in textiles, paint, and mixed media and lives in Canada. They both live where they never see a thermometer like this!I love to paint poppies. The fields of them at Wildseed Farms near Fredericksburg are beautiful. Their bright colors never fail to capture me. This is a small study that I did for a larger painting, it is 8x6. It's painted in oil, lots of texture and thick paint on this one.
This little study is at this link in my Etsy store. As a study, it is priced at $55.00.
So, until next time!
The heat doesn't seem to bother them at all.
