|Zinnias, oil, 8x10, original painting by Tatjana Mirkov-Popovicki|
Not much going on around here these days, just trying to extend the long summer days as much as possible. Setting up in the back yard garden is perfect for this.
Without commitments and expectations, everywhere I look there is something to paint. The 8x10 canvas boards are light, unassuming, happy to be keepers or not.
There aren't many art critics in the area. Baby red robins chirp from their nest and the resident hummingbird generally leaves me alone. Brushes in the grass, paint tubes at an easy reach. A brand new hammock beckons from the patio but the easel is always a priority. I think I can do one more by the end of the day.
