Warm Summer Floral Days

Sorry for the late post my dears, but my daughter and I were working on sprucing up my blog and were up way too late. We just tweaked a few things and are not done yet but you can see our progress so far...

So for todays Paint Party Friday, here's a painting done a class in the studio. Flowers of course, one of my favorite themes. Most are from our graden but the Cornflowers and the Queen Annes Lace are not. Those weeds my dear friends were obtained on the side of the road on the way to class. People driving by thought I was crazy, but I just smile and wave. lol. They say a weed is just a flower that grows where you don't want it to. To add to floral theme, I am also including some colorful plates I obtained at a yard sale. They are such pretty colors I might have to paint them too!

Hope you have a color filled week.
yours truly, gerri

  7. So fine!Love the palette you've chosen. Even the background color pleases me. Very lovely, refreshing, and fine.
    And your plates are pretty too. I could see you serving tea and cakes with those. Knowing you, there's bound to be lustrous floral arrangements at such a gathering!

  11. Lovely watercolour painting!

    And the plates ... just like my Granny's!

    After being told, at school and college, that I have no talent in art, I believed the "experts" and avoided any artistic pursuits. But I have had so much fun and success with my cardmaking ... I decided I am not so devoid of talent and started to take private painting lessons. I LOVE watercolours! Only had a few lessons but hope to take more in the fall and winter! And I am having so much fun!
