I’ve been a bit lax on posting the last 2 weeks, but I have a good excuse. It is black raspberry season!! If you have been looking at my blog for the last few years, you know that studio time lessens somewhat when the berries come in. Nothing gets between me and my berries. I have picked about three gallons so far, and if you know how small black raspberries are, you know that is a lot of picking. Almost done though. Next up will be the blackberries, but not for a few weeks.
I enjoyed doing the two little art studios last month and thought I’d like to do something else in the same vein. I found a small Key West cottage in my pictures and thought it would be a good choice. I penciled it up today. I plan to do it in the pen and ink and the watercolors. It has been fun playing with the watercolors on a small scale.
If I disappear again for a short period near the end of the month, just think about me, out in the fields picking blackberries. I am hoping for 3-5 gallons worth. All of the berries seem to have liked our long cold weather and are producing well.
