Drawing Challenge - Grass


Today had to be the day I accomplished the Grass challenge, as challenged by VERONICA...

I haven't stopped today, up by six thirty, it's eight thirty now, and time to set my photo art in place!

I took time out to take advantage of the beautiful sun we are having just now, phone in hand to snap some grass... Found our lawn seriously bereft off a decent blade to show the world... So have used my right of artist licence! Lol... Hmmmm anyway! you say!

Sat there in the sun on the steps high up in the garden I spied this little busy bee, near to the newly flowering forget-me-not flowers... And here he is, preserved forevermore happy in the heat...

I've been filing more photos away in some more plastic sleeves which arrived today, I still do not have enough, I threw some away, photos that is, sad and painful, again, but some pics are more than doubled up.

Going to clear through all of the so far filed photos and clear more, I have to, I must have about 1500!!!

Also been trying to learn more about an invitation I have, belonged to my great grandfather, its an invitation to a ball at the guildhall in London, to celebrate the opening of the Great Exhibition, with Queen Victoria in 1851, it was printed by the makers De La Rue... Very important company, then as now...



Now I'm beat... Hope my almost grass is grassy enough amiga!?!

Your almost grass is just perfect Marian! I love that pollinator buzzing around. Also, I'm so jealous of the beautiful weather in the UK just now. Robert tells me how lovely it is and I'm stuck here and so tell him to shut up! :( Anyway, I'll be there soon enough. I was juts thinking. Any chance you could send me a good quality scan of that invitation? I'd love to print it out and paint something lovely on it , an, of course, send you a print. :D Only if you want to, only if it's not a great big headache for you with all the monster stuff you have going on, and absolutely perfectly fine to say "forget it V!" Also absolutely fine to say yes and get around to it in two years time...I'll still be here. :D

What a delightful little flower in the grass with the bee. That's how it goes, those little chance moments that we are fortunate to capture!
