Hello Everyone, I am starting off with a blurry photo of a big Foxglove plant I bought today! It is so gorgeous, even though I know it will only live a short while in our hot weather. I am going to try to prolong it's demise, though, as long as I can. It is rainy and not really hot here today, so all my plants are loving a gentle soaking.
Here is the Foxglove among other plants I have to set out with the exception of the Elephant Ear plant which is in the ground and thriving. I can not resist the garden center annuals that are already up and so colorful, knowing that my seeds will take a little longer to produce. I am a "now" person!
The gate between the studio and garage is a show with the Bougainvillea in full bloom now. It is home to a couple of Cardinals who sing constantly when the sun is out, which is most of the time. They also love seeing themselves in the auto mirrors, so if parked outside, there are plastic bags covering the mirrors, much to the birds' chagrin!
The Hibiscus is now blooming; well, everything is in bloom!
I bought a Shamrock plant for St. Pat's day and it is now blooming, with my little painted rock bunny nestled underneath.
I just finished this watercolor painting as a sample for my watercolor class. I will be teaching them to use undercoat washes of color and paint brushstroke hairs over top, building up texture. I don't teach them to copy my painting, but rather I show it, then demonstrate applying the paint and they must select their own bunny photo as reference. Each painting is entirely different in the class and even though the subject will be rabbits, they will be in all different poses and settings, and even styles.
