have some sketches from this weekend in Washington, DC and my daughter C's graduation from Georgetown University to show you in a couple of days. It's certain that the only way I'm going to get any artwork done just now is to be bodily separated from my garden. Nothing like the pressure of a huge life event to focus one on the task at hand. So I'm removing spent blossoms from EVERY flowering thing out there, every day. I'm handwatering every plant with a kelp solution or bloom booster. I'm planting, planting, still, and weeding, weeding, weeding. Staking and pruning, I go through my days. Like most things worth doing, success is all in the details. I'm painting and drawing in my mind every day, though, and it helps me to remember that other artists have had their own little gardening foibles. What was that French guy's name.... starts with an M? Here's what I've been working on. I have no photos yet of the front and side gardens. Will show a bit of each right before June 2, the wedding day. Thanks so much for your continued interest, in spite of a temporary drawing drought! Everything feeds the art life, don't you find?
