Yesterday found me enjoying the "not too hot" weather with artist friends Carolyn and Sue at Carolyn's house (we're the Arty Girls) in the shade of the garage entrance. Sheltered from a brief summer shower but open to the garden and enjoying the birds flying past and the squirrels squabbling, running around trees a few feet away.
On my easel is a flower painting that will be in mixed media that I started a little while ago. So far I am working in acrylic paints on the central roses and background. The canvas is divided into different geometric shapes. Eventually some of the sections will have paper/fibre pieces and acrylic medium in gold. The flowers are sketches from the bouquet my other half gave me earlier this year for our ruby wedding anniversary.
I love red roses and big blousey pink roses! A lovely day painting alongside my arty girls catching up on art news and news in general. Out to dinner and a glass of red cabernet to finish a relaxing but industrious day. Certainly a red letter day!
