Summer Flowers

It was a busy day with farm things and business things but I saved a few hours for painting. I painted this little 5x5 inch landscape and worked on another and had to scrape it off. I read that you are not a knitter if you cannot rip out stitches that have gone awry. So I am think the same must be true for painting. You are not a painter unless you are willing to scrape a painting and make a new start.

The painting today is to celebrate the wild flowers here in the valley. Each year we get an array of wild flowers that cover the hillsides and peek out from the rocky road sides. The flowers won't last long but are so glorious to see at this special time of year. Celebrating the valley's beauty made for "A Painting Day".
