Garden Wall

Garden Wall          oil       10" x 8"
This is from the garden tour again and a more typical view from one of the smaller gardens. It had small corners and little walls that were ingeniously placed and making areas of flowers and paths seem larger than they were. Amazing what good design of a space can do.

Cabbages - a little color from the garden tour

Cabbages                   oil on linen panel                 6"x 8"
Not a very catchy title I know, but it's one of the many plants, flowers and garden art that caught my eye last weekend on the Boise Garden Tour. There are so many lovely violets and greens in the leaves and I pushed them all just a bit.

Afternoon Off

Afternoon Off            7" x 9"            oil on linen panel
Like this guy, I took an afternoon off, only for me it was to paint. Unpacking boxes and trying to figure and fit everything into new places can be exhausting for all the decision making. Painting is a lot of decision making too, but I certainly needed the switch into a different world of color and shapes.

Still Watchful

Still Watchful                  9" x 12"                oil on linen panel
In my last post before starting the crazy busy process of moving, I posted "Watchful" showing this pair with their new family. Now one month later, here they are again as they appeared in our backyard a couple days ago with their gawky 'teenagers'. I thought it would be fun to begin again where I left off, with everything both familiar and different. This group is going in all directions, just like we are on most days. The move and unpacking are progressing but I look in one box, get distracted by something else and........... head off in a different direction! 
I count it as great progress that I'm painting again... Yay!
