I hope you enjoyed the few flowers I posted ... I have more; but I didn't want to put this post into photo overload. I sure do enjoy the colors of summer.
Now... here's another project I have going on the back burner... my second attempt at an oil painting. I never drew or painted a dog before ... I hope it looks like our old gal Brandy that passed away 2 years ago when I'm finished.
~ the rough sketch on the canvas ... a work in progress ... I know this one is going to take some time; because I'm really not happy with it so far.
Brandy was the overseer of our place and is sadly missed. Here's a few photos and scrapbook pages I made of her ...
Phew! I guess this was another one of those photo overload post. Sorry about that.
Until next time ...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.
