Tiger Lily Alone

I was just browsing through the suggestions that came via email from Pinterest. I came across
a saying, I wish I could credit someone, Your attitude determines your direction. How easy it is to forget we always have a choice to react with anger or let it go. I can do this or I can't do this.
Another one :): You decide. Is it really that simple?

This solitary Tiger Lily appeared in my mystery garden last week. It is painted in oil on a canvas board 6x6 inches.

I received some lovely geraniums on Mothers to paint them and deadhead them. They are hardy and can take the punishment of my neglect.

This Geranium was painted on a 5x7 inch flat canvas panel in oil. I love playing with the various shades of blue.

Summer Sunflowers

Summer is here, flowers are blooming. Learning how to garden............

I painted these sunflowers in oil on an 8x10 canvas panel. I don't know why I love putting them in mason jars, I am a jar hoarder.

Changes. Inevitable and sometimes welcome. I've spent most of the past 18 months getting our home ready to sell. The process is daunting, clearing out pieces of your life you might not want to let go of, just yet. Thinking of what our family was like when we moved into this home. A lot of changes.

The house sold and we moved the end of April. I love the new house, still getting everything set up and functional. I am taking my time.

I have been away from artistic endeavors and rediscovering the ability to make time for myself.......
