Summer is moving along....


 To make art allows one to appreciate others: to see what's happening. To look inside yourself."       ~Melanie Circle

The warmth of summer has finally arrived here in the Creston Valley.   I spent one afternoon this week creating at Cherrybrook Farms with Win Dinn.  We sat on the back deck looking out onto the Orchards and  enjoyed our view of the valley surrounded by mountain's.

It was an enjoyable afternoon and I look forward to spending another afternoon of painting here again very soon! 

Wishing you a day of sunshine,

A beautiful day to spend with a good friend in a lovely location - the only way to top that would be to create. And we did!

I look forward to doing this again soon, Laura!

Hi Laura - Your pear painting is looking very good. Did you paint all that lace or is it a stencil? |Either way - WOW!

Laura Leeder said...

Yes! Looking forward to it Win!

Hi Val, no, it's not a stencil, it's actually a lace cloth that I photographed the pears on. A stencil could be used though....
Cheers!
