Some Garden Flowers & A Painting

Hi everyone, I'm so sorry I haven't posted in so long.  I just got out of the blogging groove and I hope to be posting more.  I went on a little photo shoot of the gardens on the property today and thought I would share them with you.

These are my brother in laws plants.  He has a green thumb and his deck always
looks gorgeous in the summer.


I want to do a watercolor of geraniums so his pots full of them were too tempting to resist.
I haven't done a painting in awhile.  I have been painting backgrounds on canvas but haven't been
inspired as to what to paint until I was checking out a blog that I love and found http://silverfootprints.blogspot.com/  She did a painting that I fell in love with and it inspired me to
do my own.  I love how it came out and love that quote by Rumi.
I hope you like my painting.

On June 3rd my husband & I went to the coast for the day.
We went to Monterey, Carmel and Asilomar Beach.  This picture is
of me in front of a little shop in Carmel.  My favorite shop,  Findings was
closed.    

Yesterday was the 1 year anniversary of my hubby's open heart surgery.  He is doing so well.
He is even learning to eat veggies.  Those of you who know him, know what a big deal that is
for him to eat anything green.  Yesterday he said he wanted to try a salad with ranch dressing. 
I almost fell out of my chair. 
One more little bit of news then I will let you go.
This little buger butt has been out rolling in the poison oak and has brought it home to me.
He truly believes that sharing is caring.
Now I have to go get a shot.  He's not as sweet as he looks.  LOL!!!!!
Have a great day you guys.  Thank you for visiting.  Please leave me a comment and
let me know you were here,  
Hugs,
Diana

Wonderful colors and organic natural forms. Reminds me of a painting like Rainy landscape, by Russian painter
Kandinsky, http://EN.WahooArt.com/
A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8EWL66
, that I saw at wahooart.com, from where one can order a canvas print of it.
Really good place to browse the painter’s work and other work similar to your style of painting.
