Another rainy day and art is on my mind

I am going to the Todmorden Mills DVAC show to pick up 
my painting Tea Alone today, and trying to figure out how to
keep the painting dry in this gorgeous rain.

Yesterday was beautifully sunny, and my neighbour and
her daughter drew portraits on their sidewalk.  Then my
neighbour's seven-year-old daughter and I experimented with
drawing using dandelions and leaves.  Then we painted with
acrylic inks -- which by the way do leave a stain if spilled on
your concrete front steps.

Oh and this painting is still for sale, and would be 
another beautiful gift for your mother, or the mother of
your children.  If you're interested write me at:

Happy planning for Mother's Day day (it's next
Sunday, don't worry.)

The day of painting sounds wonderful. So many ways to create❣️❣️❣️ beautiful painting. I love sitting next to ponds watching the wildlife.

Hi Evelyn,

I'm trying to get a very complicated painting finished.
But I realize I'm just at the "canvas is covered" stage. Now
all of the real artistic decisions need to be made. Lol.
