Just Passing Through!

Just Passing Through!
11" by 14" original oil on wrap around canvas with sides painted

    This rooster looks like he is on a mission....roosters to see, places to go...
and his feathers are in quite the uproar!  Course if you have ever been to 
a barnyard...there is quite the flurry of activity going on.  I love to watch roosters
in action and I like to decorate my walls and even platters and dishes with them.  They just have a way of making me smile!  How bout you?  
I got some more plants in the ground today and some moved.  I planted impatiens, salvia, and portulaka!  I really am getting hooked.  My son, Andrew, has been helping me dig the bigger wholes as our dirt is very dry and full of clay and old roots.  Can't wait to go out tomorrow and see if they have grown over night!  We are going to tackle moving some hostas tomorrow.  I think even Andrew is getting into it a bit.  
   Tomorrow I paint with Claudia and Adele outside in a sunflower field.  That is the plan if the weather doesn't change.  I really don't like painting outside....I know it is SO good for you and all that stuff but it is the taking all the stuff and always forgetting something important part that bothers me.  I am thinking of a backup plan of taking a sketchbook and watercolors and just having fun playing a bit.  
   I wanted to post another study I did today on canvas paper.  I am playing with different compositions and colors.

   I would love to hear from you!  Leave me a comment and tell me what you would like me to paint this summer!  I am always looking for new inspirations and would love any gardening wisdom too.  My knockout roses are not blooming much....could it be not enough water?
