As I looked at the flowers and checked for tomatoes, my eyes fell on the willow chair I had made over 15 years ago. I still have the scar from when I hit a knot on a branch and sliced my thumb.From cutting the willow branches, to sawing the pieces, to nailing the chair together, it was a special challenge.
Having taken a long blog break, it is time to return to a favourite challenge - one that continues even on holiday. While in Lake George and Saratoga Springs I was able to capture a number of shadows - once you start noticing, you can't stop!
Be sure to visit here for wonderful shadows from around the world.
Yes - fireworks!
Over a month break from blogging and I am ready to return. I needed the break but I have missed the challenges and the daily contact here.
I have done little art or writing but now I feel refreshed and ready to create.
last week we spent a few days in Lake George - our yearly trip to the area, especially Saratoga Springs. On a Thursday night we found ourselves in Shephard Park watching the Weekly fireworks. What a show!
It is appropriate to share one of my photos of fireworks as this week at ABC Wednesday, the letter of the week is "F". I am joining in the 17th round a wee bit late, but better late than never"
I have decided this round to start with a photo and then create an art piece for that photo.
F is for flowers. There were so many lovely flowers in Lake George. Here are some of my favourites.
I then created a watercolour of a single flower today.
I am returning as well to WOYWW - the meme hosted by Julie at "Stamping Ground" - where we are asked to share what we are working on and what's on our workspaces.
Here's my dining room table - where I was working this afternoon.
