W.I.P. not sure where this is headed at this point wanting to make sure the rose hips will POP!
W.I.P. I had some fun with lemon yellow- I do wish I had kept more of the white on the hips but what is done is done!
W.I.P. glazing some of the leaves to try to unite them and put them more in the back.
Travelled to Sturbridge Village this past weekend. What a unique place. You walk into the museum and get a glimpse into the way people lived in early 1800’s. They have a section of the museum that uses water to power a saw mill and wool carding machines. It was really interesting to see the mechanics of the waterwheels going. We stayed a creepy motel and I was not feeling safe to use the internet so I did not blog on my usual Sunday. On the way home we drove up the Pioneer Valley in Massachusetts. It was beautiful there were fields of sunflowers in bloom and the peppers were on the vine. My camera just does not do it justice. We stopped by Historic Deerfield which also really interesting.
