Once again, night falls before I get my painting done.  I've been so busy multi-tasking, that it's dark before i know it.  I plant seeds that I collect each year, and this red zinnia has evaded the voles to burst in bloom!  I have two colors - red and yellow, and the long, twisty petals are unlike any I've ever grown!  So, as I tend my gardens - forgetting to move sprinklers twice - I am also sketching this beauty in miniature, as a cool breeze stirs the hot summer air. I love painting to the music of crickets, and the first notes of the frogs!  Great way to center and collect my thoughts, surrounded by my garden. Painting number 3838 in 3838 days.
