|Sister's Shadow Heart|
I'm always on the lookout for pattern and repetition and no where did I find it so interesting as on the zebras and the giraffes. Early morning means lots of interesting shadows in the habitat.
I am working in my studio, painting with oils and having great fun, but I have nothing to show you yet. My techniques need lots of work. Thanks to all the rain and cloudy days of spring and early summer my garden is at its prime, at a time when its usually burning up. I'm thankful for the conditions that makes gardening in the Pacific Northwest such a rewardingh lifestyle, even though the grayness sometimes sits heavy on my emotions. Still, I would not trade for long spells of 100+ degrees of heat. It's looking like we may not need our AC this summer. Suits me.If you want to look at some interesting art have a peek at these blogs and websites from a few Oregon artists...
