Good Day

I planted my sunflowers today and I must say, gardening is hard work… Seems as though everywhere I dug, there was a giant root trying to prevent my beautification plans.  The rewards will be great and well worth the back strain, so I persisted and won the competition for the perfect spot for the huge summer blooms.  This summer I will really love sitting on my back porch watching them sway in the wind, their giant, brightness smiling at me.  I sowed in a spot that is also visible from the front so I will see them welcoming me home every day, making me even more glad to be back from wherever I go.

Working on “Bob” today with good results.  Happy.  Using my new Kolinsky sable brushes, so it is more enjoyable than it has been with my worn out ones.  I lost all my old good brushes during one of our moves a couple of years ago and have been making due with cheaper, less durable ones.  I must be rough on them because I lose a few heads in the mineral spirits on occasion… not good for keeping up with momentum.

I will post “Bob” soon to show you, seeing as the end of the month is growing near.  I will be done.  More rewards for me 🙂   It is raining outside and the wind is talking to me… no need for music in the studio today.  I will listen and just paint.

    Your blog is as visually descriptive as your paintings. Thanks for the peek into your garden, flowers and life in Largo.
    Looking forward to your ‘Bob’ piece … post it soon!!
