Yipppppppppppppeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!! I can finally show this too you. A while back I posted this photo of my girls. A few days after I posted it my friend Heather asked me if she could paint it. Right before my in-laws arrived I received a package from Heather with the painting in it. I was tickled, pleased, stunned (I don't know many people who can draw or paint, much less draw or paint this well). Heather writes about her process here.
Two weeks ago, I took it to JoAnn's to be framed. It came back today. Isn't it gorgeous. I am so lucky to have a generous friend like Heather. We've never met in person and we've only known each other for a few months. God blesses us where we least expect it sometimes. Thank you Heather.
You can see reflections in the glass. The matte is a charcoal black without stripes.
This is a collage done in a 'vintage' heirloom compact from hubby's grandma H. For details on the collage (and to see the gorgeous outside image) check out my craft blog. I posted a tutorial for it at Suite101.
Some flowers from our bike ride in Bunker today. I mentioned earlier this year that I am thinking of publishing a floral book in the fall with the working title "floral navigation." I am thinking that I might try putting together a calendar called "the flowers of Bunker" and see if the park would like to sell them.
I am ready for BLT's, taco salad, and spaghetti sauce. I actually have some fist-sized tomatoes but they haven't struck me in the right light to photograph them.
I wish you could have all been here for supper last night! We had zucchini.
If I were a head of lettuce,
I'd cut myself in two.
I'd give the leaves to all my friends
And save the heart for you.
