Zinnias


This year, I did not have time to do much in the garden. We even razed the vegetable garden because the blackberries had taken over. But I had to have something colorful in the yard. So, we moved the trough to the backyard and I planted lots of zinnias.

Alice Benvie Gebhart will be coming to Roadhouse Arts in September for a class on landscapes in glass. I promised to have zinnias so the students would have something to use as a model. I hope they last until then.

Painted Bunting


This guy has become a frequent visitor at the feeder. I see him twice a day now. I just love his colorful feathers.

I was focused on the bird feeder and trying to get a photo with him not in the shade, Mr Tabby said "Look at that tank". I wasn't even paying attention to what was beyond the bird feeder, so I was quite confused. Apparently, there really was a tank rolling down our street...

Untamed - the Exhibition

The San Antonio Glass Art Guild is holding its annual exhibition at the Bulverde Area Art Center again beginning with a reception on August 15th. These are the items that were accepted.

Heather was a collaboration with Mr. Tabby. He did all of the metal work based on my drawing. She looks wonderful gallivanting through the garden.

Hill Country Summer was a piece intended to combine all of my current passions. It has encaustic, glass and metal. I was pleased with how the very different mediums combined.

Unexpected Mornings


We had an unusual cold front come through this July. The nighttime temps dropped into the 60s and the humidity was gone! It was so nice to sit on the patio with some magazines and a cup of coffee. This morning, it started off in the 80s with high humidity. Uggh.
