Two Posts today..... TGIF!!
Our Art group is trying to stay employed, stay healthy, and get together on Friday mornings. It's not always possible, but we have been working really hard to make it happen. With the sketchy job market, several members are having to prioritize and WORK! We are just grateful when we can manage to get most of us together.
We have had torrential rains, lots of lightening (which turns off all of our computers for long stretches), and a bit of flooding (though not at our house, thank goodness). Usually, Coloradans are praying for rain, but after nine days of storms, I think we are good for a bit. It's hot and steamy....which is NOT normal for this dry high plains part of the country.
Today was such a day.....only one person had to work early, so we put our paintbrushes, colored pencils and water color pencils to paper and got to work. It felt good to get some work done.
You will notice that our Hydrangea's have a definite purple cast, rather than blue..... just can't get that soil to a happy place, here in Colorado. Still, I am thrilled that they grow, no matter the color.
So, here is the unfinished piece..... just the show you what I have been up to this week.
Have a great weekend. I hope it's not sweltering, storming, freezing, or too extreme in your neck of the woods. Everyone deserves a nice break, don't you think?
I am sending you all hugs..... Be Well!
