It's Windy Enough to Blow Me Out of the Saddle, So I Paint





The scent of the honeysuckle and the sweet peas right now is absolutely divine. So I grabbed my camera yesterday, and got a snootful of the glorious aroma while taking a few reference photos. These are two relatively small [about 8 x 8 inches] paintings I am currently working on.
Our superb summer weather is shifting a bit, and a strong wind has come in overnight, before rain tomorrow. I'll have to see if I can muster the courage to ride Bruno today - he tends, like most horses - to get rather full of himself when the weather is like this.

Thank you for dropping by, and your comments are always welcome!

  3. I love the perfume of sweetpeas, just a couple in a posy vase fills my lounge with beautiful scent.

    Hope your ride wasn't too eventful, sadly I lost my horse in November (to cancer) but still remember the spooky hacks on windy days :-)
