This watercolor sketch is of a small part of a huge, beautiful bouquet given to me by friend Joanne during the book binding/journal painting workshop. That was a week ago, and the flowers are still going strong. Except for the lily that Rudy the cat got a little too friendly with - it has shredded petals and he has an orange-stained face. Looks good on him. Ooops - maybe not so cute! A quick call to the vet - they say he's okay.
Last night we had a freeze warning. I had intended to go out and cut the flowers in the cutting garden, but I forgot all about them. From the window this morning, they look okay. I did bring the geranium pots into the porch. I just hate to see the flowers get zapped while they are still blooming.
Okay, I'm babbling. Gotta go finish up a painting that is everything I tell my students not to do. Rules are made to be broken. Sometimes a painting just happens.
