Spring time in South Africa,
Fall flowers in paint class, & a Happy Fall collage
Bonnie is hosting a Spring party ~ I know it's September and down here in the south it's not Spring but between Summer and Fall. Today is the first day that we've had a lovely breeze and it could almost pass off as a spring day until the clouds move and then it's just plain HOT! Go on over to her blog and check out the gorgeous party contributions!
Don't you just LOVE the picture above? I get such a laugh everytime I see it.
In honor of Bonnie's Spring party ~ here are some flowers from my Spring trip to Nashville.
Fall flowers in paint class today
We painted sunflowers, mums, goldenrod,
asters, yellow and white daisies, and dahlias.
I LOVE fall colors and just went with flowers
that fit the color scheme. I love painting on flower pots and that is actually how I got
started "really" painting. I painted over
1,000 of them when we lived in Nebraska
and can say to date approx. 1500+ painted
~ all original, all different, and all so much fun
Nicole won the project piece drawing today and took home the flower pot I painted during class.
Not sure if I mentioned it before but Alice won the monthly drawing for taking 6 classes in August and won a paint day with me at my home. We're going to paint an antique window.
I was trying to think of something Springy I could come up with for Bonnie's Spring Party and well this is the only thing that came to mind ~
HAPPY FALL! I know it's so opposite of Spring but it's what came to mind and what got created.
Anyway, hope you have a fantastic weekend. I am hoping to find my MOJO and get some much needed painting done. I also need to find some time to get around blogland ~ I'm way behind visiting and leaving comments.
