Sharing a floral sketch done this month. June always seems to have so many flowers blooming at once. It is hard to decide which ones to capture.
These were sketched directly in the garden with a micron pen. Later a bit of watercolor was added in the studio. Canson makes a great Montval Field Watercolor book. Seems to accept light washes well without buckling. Mine is a 10x7 with 50 pages . This size suits my taste because it is easy to carry outdoors.
It is hard to realize that the last week of this beautiful month is here. Where did June go?
Guess time flies when one is soaking up the sunshine and enjoying those glorious blooms!
May all of you enjoy those last days of June...See you in July!
My dear father passed away two weeks ago on a Sunday morning.
He slipped away from us ever so gently into the arms of the Lord.
His love and faith for God, family, and country left a legacy that will live on in all of the hearts who knew him.
There is much I could write but grief is just too fresh to allow the words to flow.
Let me simply finish by saying I know that my Dad is finally home in heaven. "...No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him." 1 Cor. 2:9 (NIV)
