My new friend Catherine, one of my yoga instructors ( http://www.catherinetingey.com), has a garden and came over the other day, bringing tons of tomatoes, peppers, chard, and this little bouquet of flowers. I love the look of a real picked-from-the-garden bouquet instead of what I usually have access to…store-bought. 5 simple flowers, each so unique and interesting to me in shape, color, direction (yes, 2 of them seem to have melded). I was frustrated not to be able to paint them for the last three days…but I managed to tackle ’em before they die. I would have loved to capture the tomatoes and peppers too, but they have mostly been eaten by now. I hope she continues her generosity…and that “Catherine’s Bouquet 2” is not far off. I would so love to have a garden…but having a generous friend with one is the next best thing. Thank you, Catherine!
