Sea Memories



Inspired by our trip to the beach, I did a horseshoe crab watercolor. They come to shore to mate and then cannot get back into the sea. While throwing them back I was impressed by their fossil like shape. They definitely left an impression!

Rooting Roses




Some of my Mother's Day roses started rooting in the vase. I planted one in thin soil after rubbing rooting hormone on the stem to help things along. Let's hope it works!

I'm fighting off another cold today, so I've stayed out of the studio except for packaging paintings. I'm itching to do some more red finches tomorrow.

Orchids


My orchids are finally doing well. If you look closely you will see a flower stem growing ( haven't seen this one bloom in years ). I think I finally found the right potting medium and food.


My miniature orchid! 


Hope to have lots more blooms for inspiration soon.

Bird Song


"Bird Song"
Medium: watercolor and ink on paper
Size: 11" x 15"



We had a wonderful Mother's Day weekend! Between the garden, buying bouquets, and receiving them, this weekend felt drenched with flowers. Also there was much cake. 

Now I am settling back in to the regular week's schedule of painting, cooking and trying to clean up the studio.
