Rattlesnakes and desert things
Hello dear blog readers! We are getting ready to leave town for a couple of days, but I wanted to give you a little something to tide you over, since I won't be posting again until we get back. (Either Wednesday or Thursday). The day before yesterday, on our run with the dog, we had a close encounter of the rattlesnake variety. Mr. Slither was sunning himself in the middle of the dirt road where we run, and Matthias nearly stepped right on him! I, of course, panicked and stopped dead. (I am not a huge fan of rattlesnakes.) I began yelling "snake! SNAKE! SNAAAAKE!" Matthias finally got the message. So of course I had to have my photograph. I made Matthias take the photos, though. I couldn't seem to get myself close enough. Here they are! If you feel like a close up, click on the photo.
I also made monotypes on Saturday, and had an okay day. Not quite as good as I had hoped, but still, it is so fun! (Yes, Priya, I am the luckiest girl! If you ever come for a visit, I will make sure you can make monotypes with me.) Here is one of my favorite ones. This is a bigger one, measuring 14 x 11 inches. I called it "Flower in Violet". You will see more when we return!
I am getting prepared for the Studio Tours in October. I will be participating the Weekend of the 11th and 12th, if any of you fancy a visit to the desert!!! Here is the link.
