I thought I would share some of the colorful photos I recently took at the botanical garden. It was an Emily Dickinson display, a lovely re-creation of her childhood home and surrounding gardens. I'll share more of those pictures another time but for now, I hope you enjoy some of the close ups of what might have been blooming in her garden over 100 years ago.
I've finished up some new pendants and in addition to that, just purchased a new mannequin to display and photograph them on.....isn't she lovely and very chic looking?? She also has a pierced ear which will come in handy for some earring photographs I might like to take in the future.
I'm working now, just today actually, on finishing up a very large canvas. I think after this I will be ready to work on some smaller pieces. I love these large paintings, designing and working on them is fun but there is so much to do and even when you think you are done, there are always more details to go back and add in the end. ARGH, it feels like the never ending story at times.
To give you a clue on the subject, the new painting is called "Monarchy" and before you picture the royalty of yesteryear running around with their crowns and holding court, this painting is more connected to the royalty of another species and might be somewhat related to the painting you see in my last post. Hmm, you probably get the idea now.....
I thought I would leave you with a quote I just heard recently that happens to come from one of my favorite artists of all time.....it is so true, especially for us artists.......
"I am always doing what I cannot do yet, in order to learn how to do it."
Vincent Van Gogh
Until next time!
