In the Garden: Memory

W14 4 12 MEMORY OF GARDEN  1 copy(I can see the difference in my second nasturtium, much looser. . .  and I like this background.)

W14 4 12 MEMORY OF GARDEN  2 copyI was feeling blue.  I was also so disappointed because Daniel Smith did not get my paints to me for our time off — three weeks of them screwing up and me calling (I now will buy locally or at Cheap Joes, never again from DS.)  Finally I decided to get off my pitty-pot — the fact is, I am not master watercolor and have a bunch of student grade old watercolors which will do nicely in my journal.  I really needed yellow today — yellow and orange cheer!

I painted from memory and photos of my husband and I in our last garden.  Plastic frogs, real frogs, birds, crows, his sneakers drying on the well roof, yellow flowers, garden buddha, saying prayers and pujas outside, all fond memories.   And I am cheered this evening, much better than when I started the day.  Happy Sunday!

    Katie – those were such beautiful hues of yellow – sort of like you made your own sunshine to cheer you up. Hub and several blogging buddies all seem blue today – maybe it’s moon cycle, tax season, winter overstaying its welcome. Whatever, it won’t last!
