The Garden


I sure haven't had any time to visit my gardens this summer! Good thing we planted Hostas and they don't require much attention. Holly's rock and water gardens are doing fine and I do have a big crop of blackberries that are almost ready. This little piece was done just because I liked the quote. It is 6x4 on Diploma parchment with watercolour and McCaffery's brown.

Heather, this is breathtaking! Such a wonderful palette and vintage feel. I hope you make a greeting card out of it!

Thanks Jody! That McCaffery's Brown is wonderful for that vintage look!

Oooh, I agree with Jody - a greeting card would be perfect for this piece. It makes me long to sit in a beautiful Victorian garden.

Can't wait to see what your pen will spin out when the blackberries come in. A berry flourish perhaps? :)

I have missed keeping up with your blog this past week and will be back tomorrow to look at more.
