My newest and latest beauty.

My latest and greatest watercolor of a little chuparosa dancing over some gorgeous Echinacea. This is stage 4 with many more to go

This was the 3rd phase.  First being the thought and sketching, the choice of colors and paper and what I want to create.  I remember from college that my professor had us think clearly about what we wanted to do.  Even write it down.  I don’t do that very often, but it came back to me wanting to take this one slow and do it for me.

I want to create the gorgeous morning light that lit up these Echinacea flowers of purple, pink and bright glowing orange with a little wispy female chuparosa dancing across her stage.

this is where the idea started.  I love the stage of bright orange heads on these wonderful pinks and purples.

And I adore the background colors and feel in this one.  And this will be the little chupa I’m going to put in my painting.  Right now she is covered in the green misket and it will be very exciting when I get to the point where I can start to paint her.

I’ll keep you posted.

I’m also posting on my FaceBook pages

And birds, I love me some birds.  This little guy was inspired by a Field Sparrow that came to our feeders one day.  And only one day, I haven’t seen it since.  Must have been migrating through.

If you ever want to buy any of my art I will pay shipping to your place.  Each picture ought to take you to the link to buy it and then I will reimburse your shipping costs, easy-peasy.

Have a beautiful and lovely day,

CheyAnne

August????? where did you go?

August 30, 2013

My goodness,

And I thought I was really do ok for me with my postings, or so I thought.  And now here it is the next-to-last-day of August, 2013.

I guess I was so much busier than I thought I was:

Daylily n bokeh

can’t resist.

My daughter and her love, Kawika came to visit in later August and I am one proud mama.  She is growing or I ought to say ‘has’ grown into a remarkable young woman and she has found a mate for herself that is as wonderful and beautiful as she is.

I watered my gardens this way with such love and caring hoping they would show-off their finery just for these young lovers on their first road-trip out of Washington, and they did:

Stormy August, Taos, New Mexico

Stormy August, Taos, New Mexico

lots and lots of amazing sweet, nourishing rain-storms came and gave blessing to our part of the world.  And we loved it….everyone, even those people that are use to complaining about the weather, were quiet in their verbal blessing of joy and bliss, and we got more rain:

this is what the rains brought, Blue of Taos

this is what the rains brought, Blue of Taos

A few years back the meadows of El Prado turned blue, but then they didn’t. Wildflowers come in waves of differences over the time of years.  Does that make sense.  Watching the patterns are so wonderful for me,  the progression of times changing and growing.

New Mexico Penestom

I adore these wild flowers and they really didn’t bloom this year at all,  (actually this was taken in July of 08)  but I was missing them, because they come in waves as well.  It all depends on rain, how much we get and when.  What time of year it rains, plays a hugh part in what blooms and what doesn’t in that season.

Beautiful water flows freely with all the rain flowing everywhere.

I love this even slightly fuzzy, because it reminds me of all the big storms we’ve been having.  I adore rain, thunder and no lightning storms. Actually I love the lightning too, but NOT this year, not here.

My crowning glory this year and Rachael loved them.

Lily’s are just incredible and I really had no idea until I grew these. And their fragrance is divine…….

My daughter and her mate were coming and having a bit of a few bumps in the road getting the final details together, so I got into the uplifting, think positive quote thing going on.  I posted this on Facebook for her.  and she made it and we got to meet Kawika.  What a  joyous way to spend August, 2013.

Peace n Abundance,

CheyAnne❧
