Abstract

I was messing around with my watercolor paints the other day and made this little abstract painting. This was actually my second try at this particular painting that day, the first try was a big mess and turned into scrap paper. I think this second try looks pretty nice.

Butterfly Wing

My paint by number is coming along; the butterfly is more than half finished and the whole painting is nearly half done! I think I can finish it in October and spend the rest of the year focusing on my other Crafty Intentions for the year, primarily the quilting and knitting that I have been avoiding.

Birdies

I decided to paint more birds! This little trio was painted wet-on-wet and outlined with marker like the finch I painted last month. I think they turned out just as cute!

A Lake, Flowers, and a Heart

I was out of town last week and took a few photos in Salmon, ID and at Redfish Lake. Did you know that dragonflies make a heart shape when they mate? I didn't.

Zoo & Flowers

I went to the zoo! And also to a flower farm! I've been wanting to take more photos lately and I have a few photos to share with you! First, a few from the zoo. This meerkat that was the perfect model for me. My favorite animal I didn't know existed until this year is a sand cat! They are so cute and I kind of want one for a pet, but they are a wild animal and would make a terrible pet. The zebras also posed for a photo, but not as well as the meerkat!

The flower farm had zinnias and sunflowers and lots of bees. I am a bit inspired to grow lots of flowers next year; I love making and enjoying flower arrangements. They grew several varieties of sunflower; one was a fun blonde color. The sunflower blooms that were just starting to open look so neat. What are your favorite types of flowers?
