I started actually painting the series I drew some time ago. I am doing them in oil, in the humidity, this could take some time to dry between painting sessions. Previous experience where I am has been incredibly slow. In the meantime I also made a mini rock garden in a bowl and began laying the lava rock for the pathways in our yard. What you see here however, is more images I took in Peckerwood Garden.
I and my husband visited the SFA gardens on our anniversary this weekend. these are some of the pictures I took when there. It was a great visit despite coming back during the storm that flooded all of us. I hope all of you in my area are safe, we are very wet.
Springtime is busy when you work in a garden but it is also a great time for Photographic experience. I have a series of paintings on panel canvases I have been planning. I photographed and sketched for a week or two and then I did the drawings for the 4 paintings. I have now done the base drawing on the canvases, although it did not photograph well.
I have also done many, many new photographs and a couple small pieces I have not photographed yet. We are having our Spring Open Days at work and I have been planning and organizing those events as well as the other work and that is also a creative project.
I have been again taking pictures but I have done a new painting, a new mixed media and have the base sketches done for the 4 panel painting set I am starting. I will need new paint to do those and a larger space than I have right this minute.
Well this week has given us about 1000 new photographs and a series of sketches and tests for a set of larger paintings I bought canvases for this weekend. I will come back and add plant names and comments on these after I ask someone from Peckerwood Garden where I work what the plant names are. The several varieties of magnolia, agave, and azalea were heavily featured in the most recent set of images.
Writing, art, Business, and practice, any medium is fair game.
