Working with Paint

I'm a self taught painter so during the hot months of July, I usually come in from my garden and take out the acrylics and oils. Just for the fun of it I painted these funny ostriches from a terrific book called Birds in Love by Jean Leveille, though these guys don't look much like they are in love.

I also put up a clothes line in my office and hung dried flowers, drawings and paintings. I've been working with oak leaf hydrangeas lately. Below are some drawings I'm preparing to paint.

Above is an oak leaf hydrangea I finished earlier. Below are dried lavender and bee balm along with some random paintings.

More later...
