Emma Cheves Wilkins , an artist from Georgia who lived from 1870-1956 is someone I have just discovered. You may read about her by clicking on her name. I loved this red and blue in the painting above which is entitled, "Red Shoes, Blue Vase, Glass and Carnations". I love it!
Remember that I told you that the Sunflower Festival was cancelled? Instead of planting sunflowers, they planted poppies and had an event for Mother's Day called "Mommies and Poppies". I visited there during the weekend (it is close to my Dad's house) and you know I had to take a few photos!
For Memorial Day, I liked that Daddy had these petunias on his porch. The purple photographs as blue, so they look red, white and blue!
For Memorial Day, my friend Mary invited me over for lunch. She had deep red roses on the table from her own flower garden and beautiful blue hydrangeas in a pot in her dining room. The red on the table and the blue beside her table was just perfect! Color is very important to me. Sometimes certain combinations of color come to me in patterns and I just go with it and appreciate the beauty. Hope you can follow my line of thinking! Have a colorful weekend everyone!
