Drawn To The Gardens

The garden outside my studio.
The gardens outside my studio are in full bloom now.I sit at my drawing board and paint and look out the window upon this myriad of colors....How they tempt me to come out side. I have been working on the watercolor of  Acadia drafts.... and it is all I can do to keep my mind on the work at hand. But I have made some headway on it...This is almost done....the  work in progress is at this point now:     

"Acadian Clyde"s  watercolor....... almost done.
Life on the farm is in full swing...and between the mowing, weeding and chores I am getting paperwork, paintings and framing done. Life is good ...if a bit fragmented during this season. Paintings are framed and ready to ship to the next show in SaratogaSprings the end of the month. I will tell more about Equidae Gallery's show in another blog post.

The studio is cool....I am headed there now! Nell and I will enjoy the studio's cool while looking out at the summer hot..... remembering what winter is like in Maine!!

Oh how easy it is to get sidetracked by the garden at this time of year :o)
I love the Acadia horses.

Hi Kathi, Love your painting of the horses with harness - you have caught the movement and moment so well.

Why don't you paint what you see out your window? It would be a wonderful composition. xo Jenny

Thank you Sue,Ann and Jenny! I am planning to get out and paint my gardens after I finish this watercolor. So much that needs painting and not enough hours in the day!! :-)
