Had a fun evening at the Medieval Times. We were on the blue team and unfortunately lost. The dinner was great though.
Tomorrow we’re heading to Canada’s Wonderland. This will be my first visit! I happened to mention that I was bringing my new travel paint set…laughter rang out. What!? Surely there’s a bench I can sit on to rest and take in the moment.
They were quick to educate me on how busy the place is but, in reflection, decided it was quite possible there’s a tiny park that artists sit in and paint. I think they were humouring me!!! Lol 😂
Just in case, we’ve rented a cabana. I like having a quiet spot, or even just a spot, to sit and be. Really looking forward to it!
Oh, what a marvellous day! Sunny and warm. A real beautiful June day. I had a tight deadline so wasn’t able to enjoy it as much as I would have liked. But I did manage to get outside during my lunch break, do a few chores and take some pictures.
I was thrilled to see one of the perennials I planted last weekend is blooming! Aren’t Columbines gorgeous?
I left my painting to the absolute last minute, 10 minutes before I was to head out the door to my oil painting class! I wasn’t sure what to paint but knew I wanted a blue sky. I’m very happy with this sky and how the entire painting turned out.
Tonight was my seventh oil painting class. My painting is coming along. I worked on the background, blending in the colours.
Today was one of those days I imagine when I think of living in the country (more country than where I am now 😉). Perfect mix of sunshine and warmth. Birds chirping, squirrels chattering, sheets flapping on the line.
I was working at the kitchen table with the door open, enjoying the warmth and the robin singing. I took advantage of a sunny windy day by hanging my freshly laundered bed clothes on the line. They were dry in no time at all.
I wasn’t sure what to paint today. Looked at the blank page for a few minutes then saw a green vine. This grew from that image:
Tonight’s photo came about as I was heading out the door to painting class. I saw a tractor in the field, I’m presuming sowing?
Tonight was week six of my oil painting class. It’s coming along but I’m still not loving the medium or the process. A friend said I was learning to be disciplined. I realized I don’t want to be disciplined…I prefer to be a free spirit 😉
As I’m writing this, the rain in gently falling, peepers and tree toads can be heard (when there’s a break in traffic, that is). I just love a rainy night!
