#234 – SHOWER PROGRESS

#234 - SHOWER PROGRESS (8)

I’m working feverishly on my outdoor shower, however I have decided not to give anything away until the big reveal.

Here are some more supplies I was working with today:

All sorts of goodies I’m digging up from the shed, garage, & basement.

Top Secret!

I’m such a dork.  Obviously I watch too much HGTV!

Onto Art….

Today was a tweaking day. 

I re-sketched a new bouquet of dahlias.

I want to try again painting them again.

Learn from some mistakes.

Next, I drove over to pick up some butterfly bush blooms from my girlfriend’s house.  I had a 30 foot butterfly bush in my yard and I accidentally killed it.  I didn’t think it was possible since they grow like a weed, but I manage to do it.  I cut it back to hard and it didn’t come back this spring.  Total sadness.  We are on the Monarch butterfly’s path to Mexico, so I got hundreds of butterflies on the bush.  I bought a new bush, but I won’t get butterflies this year.

Anyway, I sketched and began to paint Buddleia, the Latin name for the butterfly bush.

Lastly, I added a few more leaves to the rose bud vase.  Every time I walked by, I kept thinking it needed something.  Whether it needed it or not, it got it!  No un-doing that one. Luckily it was a quick fix otherwise I’d be adding it to my long list of re-dos!

This is my final day without the kiddos.  They come back tomorrow.  It was quiet while it lasted!  I’m looking forward to seeing them.  I haven’t laughed as much while they were away.  Tonight my husband has prepared a feast.  I’m off to enjoy it!
