So my next show is July 10 and 11 at Art in the Park in Fort Wayne’s Freiman Square. Then we are taking a weeks vacation to Frankfort, Michigan. So looking forward to this, it has been a long time. Then July 31 and August 1 will be a nice Fort Wayne show at Coventry.
I would like to get a couple more paintings completed, they are in my mind, just have to get them on Canvas. I am not a fast painter and am always amazed of the painters who are. I have some books to show but that will have to wait till next time. I had scanned them in a PDF format which is not supported here.
We are having Fathers Day dinner this Sunday, grilled steaks and chicken, Texas sheet cake, make ahead potatoes, Naan bread, fruit salad. Looks like Sunday will be warm, we have paint colors to talk over. Have a wonderful holiday and say thanks to Dad ❤💙
This week we had a leafhopper check in with us. I also saw him on the pool fence too. I am sure he was the same fellow. Why wouldn’t he be?:)
At the end of May I took a snapshot of the neighbors pine tree. I was amazed at all the new pine cones it was growing only on the upper half.
Here it is last week. The pine cones are turning brown.
This Great Horned Owl is so cool. My brother-in-law Keith took this picture. It was sitting on the fence behind their house. To me it looks like his head is turned around because those have got to be his tail-feathers. Such a wise and serious face.
This Luna Moth decided to stop by for a few hours and hang around. It lost the two long hangy wings so I wonder if it has a harder time flying. Those decorations on the wings look like they are painted on.
I follow a blog that does much journal drawing. She is always stopping and drawing the pods left over from the flowers and they are very neat. So here I snapped a photo of daylily pods and I think I got an extra bug on it for good measure. They are interesting and the blog is Dispatch from LA…dispatchfromla.com.
Different daylily pods.
Zinnia blooming from my planted seeds. They were called giants on the seed package….they are kind of tall but I was expecting a much bigger bloom. Still pretty though.
Thought I would get a shot of my ornamental grass by the dryer vent. See all the lint on the ground? It is nice and full this year.
The bloom looks like a fuzzy catapiller.
Late season poppies. Pretty but a little worn around the edges. Have you had any interesting nature creatures or blooms stop by your home? I am very interested, tell me about them and leave me a message. Thanks for stopping!
