Happy Independence Day!! Our daughter, Joanna, has her birthday today so we will be in Austin to see her. We will be celebrating here on Saturday as our town has fireworks that day so the Austin Symphony Band can come, they are in Austin tonight.

Irwin, sadly we won't be to your side of Canada. We would so like to get back there, but it is soooooo far. We will be up around Nelson and Cranbook in BC. Weather should be great about the end of August. One year we were snowed on as we left Canada in Idaho. So we go prepared. Ha. Thanks for watching out for us, though. : ) I bet your scorcher is 80 - 85, eh? Ours is 92 and expected to go to near 100.
"J", your honey makes me want to eat some and I hardly ever eat sweets for breakfast. Your weapon remark made me laugh, probably will never see my rolling pin the same way again!
Paul, you are getting so good with the watercolors. I'm impressed. Are you liking them? Cool beach scene. Wow on the box. Wish we would get some of your rain.
Joan, you post even when you are busy. I am amazed. Love the bag. Well, all of them. Cute lady at the salon.
Barbara, lovely rolling pin and basket. Beautiful.
I did a couple on Canada Day and yesterday. First two in the brown paper sketchbook with the Prismacolor Pemier 08 and the other two on my iPad with Brushes. All freehand and quickly. Not using "undo" on the iPad except where I accidently touched and made a swath across the page. Ha. I do change the texture and opacity of the brushes.
Number 1, bird - the cardinal is probably more from my mind than seeing him. They move too fast.
Number 2, picket fence - none near here so our iron fence/rail.
Number 3, limb - one of the pine limbs over the storage shed.
Number 4, shrubbery - none around here so used the vines growing on the fence.
