I'm a bit late for the party (Paint Party Friday, of course!) but I finally had the paints out and have something to show! May was a very busy month. I have been away and haven't had much of an opportunity to paint or visit PPF partyers. :(
On Monday, one of the sketchbooks that had been out of circulation for some months, arrived in the mail . Yay! I wanted to turn it around and get it on to its next stop as quickly as possible. That inspiration lead to action!
Today I finished it and ran to the post office to send it on its way to Nicola in Australia.
This book belongs to Kim - Queen of Arts and has only a few entries - mine is for the month of September! It was very hard for me to paint and write about September at the end of May, beginning of June but I think I found the perfect poem...
First spread before poem added...
With poem... words read...
The torrid kisses
"July, my only love" "Say you remember."
- LaRetha Adams, Before Winter
Since I too love July and am yearning for it as the weather here has again turned cold and rainy, this poem seemed perfect!
This is the second spread where I talk about September means to me. (Hint: it involves grapes and pears, and apples (up until last year when my apple tree died) which I grow in my yard.)
Hope everyone has a great time at the party! I will be dropping by to visit this weekend. (My expected distraction this weekend - the incredibly growing weeds - are safe for now with this miserable weather...)
