My latest pansy.

September has always been the month when I get back on track.  The lazy days of summer are over and it's time to get reorganized.  This year I thought I might have to wait until October.  It's the 19th and I'm just getting back on a schedule today.

Did it ever feel good to get in a morning of painting and drawing practice.  I finally finished a pansy I started a couple months back (except for my signature) and reviewed my drawing lessons to remember what it was I had learned in the spring.  This afternoon I'll prepare for the painting lesson I'll teach on
Wednesday morning and review what's needed to enter the "Under 100" show that's coming up at our local gallery.

I want to mention a special guest who stopped by my booth during Art Walk.  Dennis Weber is an amazing artist but I think his real passion is playing the flute.  When he stopped by my spot during the show, I noticed he had his flutes with him. I was so pleased when he offered to sit a play a while.


  1. The pansy is lovely. Feels like its really happy to see the sun. Just saw Dennis Weber's website, seems like he is an all rounder. I am sure you had a great show.
    Best wishes,

  2. Je pense que vous avez passé un bon moment...
    Très jolie pensée...

  3. Ohhh, lovely one Bonnie. Hope things are good with you.

  4. I love pansies and this one smiles! Looks like such a happy day at your booth - wish the music came thru here...blessings.

  5. What a feast over here today, Bonnie! A beautiful purple pansy and a delightful booth with not one but two beautiful draws for attention (your art and the musical stylings of Dennis Weber!)...

  6. Dennis is fantastic. Some of my favourites of his work aren't even the Métis works, but more generic ones. And I didn't know he played the flute- or maybe I did, but hadn't heard him play. So cool that he played at your booth!
