It's September, and if you live in Florida, it means that you are waiting for some sort of storm. For us, it is Hurricane Irma. It is so hard to believe that a category 5 Hurricane will be coming our way soon, as the sun shines and the birds are singing all around us.
We are prepared! We have put up the hurricane screens, put away all of the outside 'stuff'; put our valuables & a suitcase full of clothing aside for immediate evacuation. We have water and the cars are all gassed up and waiting to sit on I-75 heading away from the Hurricane. It might not be too bad, but one must think about such things and wait patiently for Mother Nature to make up her mind.
On a lighter note, I have been quite busy this month. I have been drawing a lot this summer, and I want to share my work. I have also been doing some projects around the house, since the heat has limited a lot of outdoor activities. So, let me begin.....
Well, it was only a partial one and we didn't have glasses
so I made up a wheaties box for viewing.
This is my photo with my phone
Not sure just what to make of it,
but I think that we missed the effect of the total eclipse.
|I had some cards made from a drawing that I did in Maine.|
|work in progress|
|I worked on this Wasp Nest. I had brought it from Colorado|
and wanted to draw it for several years.
It was done in graphite and overlaid with colored pencil.
|We are using it as a bar or serving station, when company comes a calling.|
|This is a very old piece, a dried Sunflower,|
that I went back and detailed just a bit.
It is fun to go back to look at old work and be able
to make it feel more finished.
|While Houston was dealing with a deluge, we received 16 inches of rain.|
Our 'already saturated' ground couldn't hold any more water, and
we had some neighborhood flooding.
I fear that this will repeat itself again this weekend.
|Water, water everywhere!!|
|This was almost finished...but I wanted to add a different pillow.|
Let me know which one you like best.
before it was ironed and a few details were completed.
|Here is the final look. I stenciled the chair & the pillow|
with chalk paint. The chair now sits in a transition space
between living room and the family room.
I may trade out the pillows for fun.
