A little painting...and more..

Created this wee painting today..after about 5 years or so of having not dabbled in water color painting. I created this is about 4 inches tall by about 4 inches wide.After I painted the image I added pen and ink details.

Just a wee something to try to get the creativity going again.:0)

Then I wanted to share with you another one of my vintage circus themed items.
That I'll be using in my new home..once we get to that point..ha.Anyhow..I like this little guy and can't wait to get him out to display him in a new home.

I'm not into those weird creepy/scary clowns..but I do like vintage, folksy clown and circus type things..ones that have a slightly European look to them like this one has..very hard to find them like this. Either the clowns are too cutesy-kiddy,or too creepy to suit the look I am wanting in the new I was delighted to have been able to find this one a while back.Doesn't it look cheery? And I love the mix of yellow and blue.

Well, we have had a bit of rain here today and yesterday..which is good for the bean plants though..I have a few varieties of heirloom bean plants growing right now.(Jackson Wonder Butterbean, Queen Anne Blackeye Pea, Provider Bush Bean, and Royal Burgundy Bush Bean) Don't the little seedlings look great?

I hope you all have had a good weekend thus far!
Thanks for stopping by.

Clearly five years away did not impair your ability to paint! It's beautiful. :)
I'm glad you're only getting a bit of rain. My sister is being drowned in Bradenton. She went to show a rental property to someone yesterday, in a downpour, only to find the yard had flooded all the way up to the front door! I hope you don't get that much where you are.

Love your painting! reminds me of old-timey botanical illustrations.
Your beans are looking good. Those I planted in May are petering out now, but the ones I got from you I planted in July and they are producing well & will until we get a freeze.:)
