#775 Yardment -The Other Side of the Fence


A flower from Brie's side of the yard. Brie's idea for the next Yardment* is for me to paint her dirt pile, the one she made while creating a hole. Oh, to be a Wheaten. still life acrylic 6"x6"

*yardment defined - if you have no idea what I'm talking about, that's okay, I think I'm being funny, but it might just be funny to me - Duane Keiser, a daily painting superhero, is painting 1000 'Oddments,' so every now and then, I think it's a good idea to paint something from the yard and call it a Yardment. Brie, the dog/art collector is waiting patiently for her own Oddment, we, er, um, I purchased #308 and I'm really hoping it's a painting of a piece of candy and not one of a bug - his subjects have quite the range - Brie is hoping for a painting of a dog treat or a squeaky toy or of the dog across the street, named Stinky, oh p-lease do not let it be a painting of Stinky -
