Day 28

Annually, a friendly gathering arrives at the Slo -Lee Ranch where our friends Fran and John host an out of this world shin-dig.
Music, Dancing and a star-lit barbeque, wall to wall kids, and multiple generations 
This year I took the opportunity to sit back and paint....

Day 25 - 30 Paintings

"Sweet Roses"

This time of year a viney rose blooms between the wisteria.  Bright orange and red with hints of yellow.
My new chalk pastels really capture the colors.

I will post this along with other roses during my October Rose project.  Be sure to visit The Melissa Project 2014 to learn more about it.

24th Day...


A simple watercolor.

After a stressful day with personal to does, a few quiet moments in mums Garden was a welcome break.  I did a few sketches and think this hydrangea is pretty.
