My garden friend shows her personality




Shadows from overhead trees are always with me as the painting comes to life.



Using chalk helps me define and adjust areas.
Later I can apply more paint.






I must work quickly if I want to finish before cold weather comes.

Perhaps by Spring she will have some sheet metal friends.

    1. Hussam, you are kind to say this. Sometimes all of our art is a reflection of ourselves, don't you think?

  5. beautiful in the light and shadows of day.
    do you paint over the chalk? or brush it away as you paint?

    a year or two ago i painted my kindling box, a wooden drawer someone had thrown away. I was surprise at how long it took and how much paint. Your door is much larger, has it been a big / long project?

    it really is wonderful.

    1. I usually brush the chalk away and it still shows a little and sometimes I forget and paint over the chalk and it doesn't really matter.

      This project is not a long one. I normally paint around 2 hours at a time and so far this has been three 2 hour sessions. I'm hoping to give it a couple more 2 hour visits.

      It really has been special, like meeting someone that I already know.:))
