I wrote a lovely post to go with this drawing in an email and somehow deleted it. So I'll try to remember what the heck I wrote!
I had a great artist date with Kerri, my favorite partner in crime. We had the luxury of me staying over night so we could indulge in relaxing and not having to work to such a strict time schedule. Kerri spoiled me with great company, great food, and an only 15 minute commute to my work (compared to a 65 minute commute). I did have a bit of a art-challenged day. I couldn't mix paint colors to save my life. I tried to put together a drawing I wanted to do and it just wasn't coming together. I finally have the wisdom to stop trying to force something that doesn't want to work to work. So the above lady just appeared and I decided to roll with it.
My Dirt Diva is a tribute to Kerri. She loves and nurtures her landscaping and flowers. She made a comment that I found that I also very much relate to. She won't miss her house, but she would miss the outside parts. I totally agree. I love my perennial gardens that I curse at every year when things either die out or totally take over. Seems it is always one or the other!
We had another storm coming with hail so I decided to take some pictures of my gardens before they got clobbered. Here's a couple. We've had storms predicted all weekend and we only got one so far. It took the power out as I was writing this post. Luckily, Len fired up the generator and I'm able to finish. Bye for now!
