Yep, I've been absent for a while. Didn't realize it had been this long but here's what I'm working in for the moment...concrete. Kinda fun exploring some of its properties.
Molding it... or borrowing nature for a mold... my cannas, for one.
to get this.
Or hydrangea leaves, or oak leaves, or maple leaves or whatever catches my eye. Even rhubarb (on left) or the elephant ears (one that I repainted that my teacher/friend Paula Stallard made).
Birds love 'em!
They can make interesting splash blocks...
Small hydrangea leaves are fun to paint and scatter. Hosta leaves are great, too, but I don't have any current pictures of them.
If you want to give it a try yourself, here is a link Birdbaths. There are other versions out there but it's a start. Have fun!
