More of the frame

I didn't finish yesterday but I got pretty far on the water and the birds in the tree. The frogs are coming along too and I hope to be done with this one tomorrow evening.
We'll always takes longer than I expect it to.

New painting

This new painting is on a frame made to house a mirror. My dad is making the frames and I am painting them. We are making them together and the proceeds will go to help pay for a dream trip to Italy. I need yo get busy if we are ever going to get to go.
This frame is titled spring and will have birds and frogs and some butterflies when it is all done. I plan to spend the rest of the day working on it and potentially getting it finished.

Look T roses and peonies!

Here are my Flame roses that I started 4 years ago. I thought they would be all down the fence by now but alas....they are just seeming to get started. But aren't they gorgeous? And here is a small peony that I also planted 4 years ago that is also just beginning to give me flowers. This year I have 8 buds and last year I only had one! So I am super happy and constantly walking over to them to see each flower opening slightly more every day.
I planted a surprise gerber daisy in the front hosta garden that has a bud tucked down in it's leaves. I can't wait to see what color it comes out to be. I love flowers.

My 2 great students

This first one is dad's 6 th drawing with brush and ink. A still life I set up with 2 of my sculpture legs from the Alice show and some glass objects. It's amazing!
The second picture is mom's 3rd drawing with pencil. I love it and she worked so hard on it. They are both coming along amazingly and for being married 40 so years...they are so different.

Other pictures from the show

Those crazy boobie looking things on the left are funnels. I needed one and couldn't find my old beat up metal one so I made myself a new cool black and white funnel. Of course I found the old funnel right after I made the new one...oh well I think they are cute anyway.

Latest Show

Latest show. It was a home show at another artists house. We had a great turnout and everyones work was awesome! We are planning to do it again next year. Hopefully it will be just as successful.
