Places I go, or things I think, either way, I'll be rambling on.

Hats and Hosta updates
You may remember that during the summer I got invited to sit and paint in a beautiful hosta garden as part of a fund raiser. People who would also be going for a lovely tea in a local church basement toured the garden throughout the afternoon. I had never tried to paint in public before, and decided, since acrylics dry much too fast for me outdoors, that I'd work in watercolour. Well, I didn't think it would be very interesting to have others watching paint dry, so I got three different hosta paintings started before I arrived, and then worked on which ever ones were dry enough to proceed. It was an interesting day for me, and I hope those wandering through enjoyed it too.
I never would have had the courage though, if it had not been for the fact that we were supposed to wear hats, since the event was called Hats and Hostas. I have a hat that I thought would get more attention than anything I was painting, so that gave me courage.
Summer is over, but I thought I should share those paintings, now that they are finished. Tell me, do you like one better than the rest?
