Jansen Memories

watercolor
14" x 21"

This is a memory from the past.  I remember going here when I was a little girl with my parents.  My mom would always get veggies here along with her plants for the garden and  for her flower pots.  She always would buy a bunch of gladiolas, too.  She always loved flowers so maybe that is where I got my love for flowers.

This farm stand is long gone along with the one that they also had in Hobart, Indiana.

It was another fun day taking photos and then coming back to my studio to paint them.... Digital photography is the best.  I remember when I was an art student.....eons ago.  We had to go out and take photo references.  Back in my day slides were cheaper than prints.  I think the reason why I married my hubby was because he had a Polaroid Instant Camera.  That was so cool in the day.  He also had an expensive calculator and I think it just added and subtracted.

Pansy demo II

watercolor
floral

Another demo for my students.  These flowers I bought early spring.  I thought they only bloomed for a little bit.  They looked like their time was up.  One of my students who is a master gardener told me to put them out in the sun....so I did.  Wow.  She was right...they started to bloom again....LOVELY.

It's so nice watching the flowers grow.  We have had a few very hot days...like 90 degrees....today it was really cold and windy.  I wanted to plant more flowers....but hopefully it will be warmer tomorrow or at least not as windy.

have a great weekend.
