Inspired by Pink Lisianthus - HAPPY BIRTHDAY DORIS!

1/8 Sheet
Arches 140#CP

I saw these pink lisanthus at the farmers market last week and was inspired to paint them to celebrate Doris' birthday today!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DORIS!!! MAY IT BE YOUR BEST YET!!

We picked figs in the --- RAIN!!! -- yesterday -- and didn't mind the soaking! We were doubly rejoicing for the water and the luscious fruit. I've put up over two dozen jars of preserves, dried several quarts and today will finish jars of picked figs (like spiced figs - not too much vinegar) ...!

We've company for dinner and we're still working on finalizing framing and cards for the exhibition next week.

The weekend has flown by in a buzz of activity and chores ....

Hope you have a great Sunday! And thank you for your continued votes -- we're almost to the finish line!

PLEASE VOTE!

Wow! Gorgeous pinks and blue greens -- vibrant, soft and flowing -- what a terrific composition. And the bit of splash off the top edge. You just keep getting better and better dear friend.

So glad you got rain. We've had a couple of days where we really got a soaking and everything looks much better -- and it's even a bit cooler too -- not much -- but every bit helps.!

Good luck with all you have to do.
Big hugs,
Lorraine
