I wish every day was Hull Secret Garden Tour day. I did three paintings today, but I'll just post this one for now. It was so good to be outside, the weather lately has been for the birds (think ducks).
I went out to paint poppies today, the rain held up just long enough - there were more than I expected - and to boot, I got a bunch to take home with me - guess what I did ALL day - yup, paint poppies!
It's an unusually high tide. We parked our cars at low tide and waded in barefoot (brrr) to retrieve them later on (oops!) - to the right, between the rocks is the road leading further out to more houses. This explains why the house nearby is on stilts . Below is painting #751.25, 6x6in, a dock leading into the marsh. Floating around in the marsh grass sounds nice. SOLD
This little 4x4in is my last painting of the day (#751.75). This house is tucked away behind some trees, I liked the roofline so much I thought I'd paint it.
I just scolded a turkey, it had no idea what I was talking about and my stern voice (?) made Brie, the chicken, I mean dog, jump into my arms, what a sight - me telling a turkey to not eat the strawberries, and a dog clinging for dear life. Click here to purchase, 6x6in, acrylic
It's that time again. Roll up your windows and lock your car doors, the strawberries are coming in, but so far, I've had no problem keeping up with them and haven't had to abandon any on doorsteps or unusual places. . . click here to purchase, 6x6in, acrylic
Take that Yardments I've got wildlife. Even heard an osprey today, apparently - I have no idea, over the weekend I heard this one bird sound and thought it was one of Brie's toys quacking (so did she, by the way) - turns out it was a real outdoor bird. Oh, since when do turkeys fly?
Other News: Saturday, noon to four - Meet the Artists at 60 South Street, Hingham Square - I'll be there, and we'll all be painting - come down for a chance to win a painting by me!
Other News: Brie was visited this morning by an Irish Wolfhound. He (she?) was being followed by what was presumably his (her?) cat (wasn't ours). The two of them were perched outside the door (waiting?). I hadn't had enough coffee yet and at first only saw it's back and for a moment thought, we have wild boars?
More News Still: This Saturday come by and Meet the Artists in Hingham Square, noon to four.
