Fun new sunflower painting!

Last weekend we visited my parents and sister in Huntsville to celebrate my parents' 50th wedding anniversary. On Saturday we went to a really interesting hydroponics farm, and got some sunflowers along with all the terrific vegetables. That evening several of us sat around the kitchen table and drew or painted the sunflowers.

Mom gave me some Aquaboard panels, and I opened a pack of the 5"x5" ones to give it a try! Tomorrow I will spray the painting with a fixative but I wanted to go ahead and put up the image now. If it's much different after spraying it I will post again.

New blog layout

A friend was out of town yesterday and invited us to harvest his garden to keep it producing. We came home with quite a bounty!! Here's just one little bit of it; quite colorful! I put a bunch of squash in the freezer over the weekend from another friend, and today I battered and froze two trays of eggplant, and we sliced, battered and baked another one for supper. Yummy! It was like fried okra but without the grease.

I'm playing with the new Blogger templates. I kind of like this, but please leave me a comment letting me know if you think the background is too distracting. Thanks! :)

Art Shows

Wow, it's been far too long since I updated my blog! I'm just popping in now to give a quick update. This past year has been really busy but good. Most recently, David finished his last season with Upward Basketball last week. My folks came to visit for the weekend and were able to go to his basketball game, then go to the opening of an art show some of my work is hanging in for a few weeks, and they got to see David get baptised on Sunday.  Altogether it was a wonderful weekend!

These are the four paintings that I've got hanging in the new Catawampus Gallery in Opelika. They will be hanging for a month.

This is a close up of my favorite one. I love to paint irises!

And this is the best thing that happened last weekend. David was baptised by our youth minister, Greg. It was a terrific weekend!
