My assistant, Foxy, is compiling a list of flowers for me to paint. On it are a yellow daisy, a small delicate yellow poppy, and an orange mystery flower. Camas is also on the list; blue lily-like flowers with a nutritious, bulb-like root (a staple food of Native Americans in the Pacific Northwest). Camas was requested by a visitor to my booth at the Scappoose Farmers Market.
Below is an image of the daisy painting in progress.
Foxy was a lot of help so I gave her some chocolate for desert. Then I discovered that she found, and ate, almost the entire bar of chocolate. I scooped her up and put her to bed.
Golden colors and crisp temperatures make for perfect walking weather, so I took myself outside this morning for a walk. Not a soul on the trail up to the castle, at least not any living ones, unless one counts the goats that had broken through their fence!
