Time Flies

Here is a lavender-colored, flowering plant in an old crock--taken this past week. May use as an accent in stone house, or meetinghouse, photograph and create an altered art piece. Or...may do a sketch using tinted graphite pencils.

A week has gone by since I last posted. Where does the time go?

During this week, we had company and prior to their arrival did a ton of cleaning. The house looks nice.

Went to an estate sale and also to my favorite resale shop. Found some neat props (all for under $50.) The best find is a wooden saffron container from the 1800's. Coming in second is a blue and white porcelain Chinese ivy starter. There was a millifiore paperweight (at the estate sale) that appears to be "end of the day." "End of the day" is when the artist uses scrap glass to make some not so perfect items. Since I already have an antique millifiore paperweight, a collection may be in the making.

Painting seems to be on the back burner for now. Instead, I will make my photographic paintings using light instead of paint and a camera instead of brushes. An occasional drawing will be fun to do too.

Thank you for pointing out which items were which. The Queen of Renaissance is at it again. Pot with lavender flowers is an excellent photograph. Glad to see you are posting again in your journal.

Time flies is right. It's been weeks since I've done anything online.
Of course, coming to your pages always feels like coming home and your images delight my visual senses.
And I have a deep love of lavender, so todays was the perfect visual.
