These are the first of the spring blooms in my garden. Soon after the irises are gone, the amaryllises and Dutch irises will follow. Then will come the sunflowers. I can hardly wait for sunflowers! But wait I must. Gardens teach us patience and give us hope for the future. Today I put in a dozen tomato plants. I wasn’t going to do tomatoes this year, because I’ve had such awful luck with them for the past couple of years. But how do you not have tomatoes?
My two paintings have been accepted in the local annual juried show. I’ll be getting those ready to deliver next week. They each need a little cosmetic touch-up here and there. Some of the texture has been knocked off in little places on one of them, and the other one has not received its final coat of gloss medium.
Here is a detail shot of the damaged texture. I think it happened because I wasn’t being careful enough to let it dry thoroughly before handling the painting. All I have to do is paint the appropriate color to conceal these little spots. You will see them everywhere there is an obvious speck of white. No big deal.
I’m thrilled that I’ve had some recent art sales, both paintings and collages. It’s always a great incentive to make more art.
These are two collages that recently sold. Thanks so much to my wonderful collectors! You are appreciated more than you know.
I hope you’re enjoying spring (or whatever season it is at your house) and creating something beautiful every day.
