A visitor to our little world ...

It made us feel good to see this beautiful butterfly visit our hanging baskets.

One Summer Day Watercolor Painting

After staying away for much too long on my blog, today I thought I would post a photo of a watercolor painting that I finished a few months ago. I just listed it also on I had a mental image of the future painting and then there was the task of painting what was on my mind. A big task. I do admit I worked on this painting off and on for months. It measures 17" by 23" and was painted on slightly textured illustration board. I love the combination of the old white-painted wood, the red/pinkish color of the roses and the stark black of the raven. You could also exchange the word "crow" for "raven". Thanks for taking a look at a moment of one summer day.
