It was July 4, 2012 when I started this blog! I really appreciate everyone who has come by here in the past twelve months. It's been very encouraging to have visitors. After one year, the blog is still so much fun, and the paintings continue!
The most recent plein air group I joined is a great group of artistic people. I ran across the group one Friday morning, painting at Arlington Garden and asked if they would mind if I joined them the following week. One of our members, Liz, lives on a street in South Pasadena that is lined with Jacaranda trees which I wrote about in my post Jacarandas!. Liz kindly invited the plein air group to paint at her house when the trees were in full bloom with their purple flowers. I found a spot by the curb, in the fallen purple flowers, across from the shaded north side of Liz's beautiful brick home. Purple flowers continued to fall in my palette and water. No problem!
The diverse painting group, which began in 2004, decided to have a show of our artwork! It's scheduled for July 2 through July 31, 2013 at the Glass Room Gallery in San Gabriel. It's very exciting for me to be included with the group in this show. Who knows what the next year will bring!
