Right now there are a lot of violets, ground ivy, and lily of the valley on the ground in my yard in Elmhurst. I am really enjoying the fleeting moments in the garden with the perennial wildflowers. I also have colorful pansies in pots around the house. And a few carnations and fun things. Love this pink!
I have moved a lot of my watercolor painting and acrylic painting to my Idaho art studio. They are both paints that dry quickly, which allows me to easily ship and produce them. While the actual painting time can be painstaking slow with watercolor, they are dry within 24 hours. Look forward to more watercolor and acrylic paintings as well as my usually favorite oil paintings.
While I don't sell these or get sponsored for mentioning these soaps, I love them! I used to buy the goat milk brand ZUM at my local grocers. But these are larger for the same price, locally made, and come in so many wonderful varieties. I use them and buy them as gifts as well. The brand is Mion and they are sold online and locally at my city's farmers market. I really love all the owner's projects and offerings.
Just some photos from around the house. First, the blood oranges are in! Have you tried these? Red as wine inside. And delicious too! Second, the dried gouache in a flower-shaped palette looks like a work of art to me! Freshly bloomed. Third, grape hyacinth starting to fade. Will put in the ground soon by the peonies in the back yard. Fourth and last, some seed packets to go in the Elmhurst house garden.
