Got notice flight was delayed an hour..
Somehow that was good news as I could now wrap up my packing with a little more ease by leaving one hr later...
Got notice flight was delayed by yet another hr...
Somehow that was tolerable..
As I brought lots of toys: watercolour paints, sketch book, pastels...
HAPPY FUN FRIDAY, everyone! urbanSketching#urban sketchers #airport sketching #watercolour sketching #people sketching
Painting with differently abled students...
Kevin painted his first dog portrait ever..
He worked really hard fine-tuning the mouth, paws, erased, tried again and again.
I was concerned he would be overwhelmed and give up..
But he never did..
Translated into a wonderful card which has been very popular in sales..
YOUR PATIENCE PAID OFF, Kevin! Way to go! So proud of your endurance in the process..
‘Sidewalk Summer Surprises’ 16x20
Art Competition Brampton
The height of summer prolific blooms nearly always hide me from your view…
You walk past hardly a glancing my way..
I hear every conversation you exchange on your phone pressed warm against your ear....
When no one’s about..
I rise up and offer dances of appreciation for the beauty of my constant floral companions…
Who sway in the breeze in rhythmic dance
In syn with my heart and inner being 🕊🙏🏽🥰💛💙🕊

Love doing this study of a white house...
Car parked right in front of my view...
Had to finish off in the middle of the road..
No worries....just lifted my easel and walk to the side of the road each time a car came by..
So grateful for the peace I live in...
Must not forget about Ukraine... 🥰🇺🇦💛💙🕊
Painting with differently abled individuals..
Painting ice cream cones on a hot day to cool off...
Taylor: " I am so glad I came today..I so love painting!"
It was so good to hear:
During the process, they would say they didn't know how to do it...
But they all pulled it off in the end..😊🦋🙏🏼

Day 4 Adirondacks Painting Event..
Wanted to paint a sunset after supper..
But the beautiful setting sun was behind me...
When what attracted me was the land of trees jutting into the water...
Oh well! Just borrow from one scene to stick on top of the other... 😜
The water can be so calm and yet so tumultuous at another time...
So is life..calm one season, tumultuous in another..
But seasons change..
May we have the courage to just be during each season...
May we be open to learn from both the pain and the bliss.. 🙏🏼🥰🕊💙💛🇺🇦
Day 1 Adirondacks Invitational plein air event..
Arrived earlier abd did a painting before evening orientation..
Was feeling proud of myself for having driven for the first time for 7 hrs by my little self across the US border..
Relishing feet on the ground feeling the wind playing with my hair..
My eyes resting on placid waters…
Making sure I don’t inadvertently roll over the edge 😆

Delivering my painting:
“Salute to the Queen “
The Queen Bee that is…
Although we’re also thinking of the Queen”s Jubilee celebration 🎉
It”s been accepted into the juried show “Beauty of the Bees “‘ exhibit as part of the Streetsville Bread and Honey Festival…
Highlighting the need to preserve our bees on this planet…
Which would not thrive without the intriguing activity of our bees …The centre of which is Her Royal Highness herself…🐝 😄
May you beesily enjoy a bee-tiful day with the bees in your garden, dear friends 🌻💙💛☀️🙏🏽🐝🐝🐝

The sun decided to drop by just as I was finishing up…
Well! Hello! Where have you been all day!
