So Much Depends Upon

So much depends upon A red wheel barrow Glazed with rain water Beside the white chickens.  -William Carlos Williams    
As the weather warms not so gently here in Austin, wheelbarrows are, indeed, important articles for moving piles of compost and leaf mulch to prepare new garden beds. Time to get planting!
Painting and growing are so connected in Arnica's work. Each is a labor of love. Each hopes to produce a beautiful final product. In both cases, the result is far from certain, and takes hard work and dedication to the effort.
Time for a last little vacation before the real work of springtime comes on, Arnica Grace will soon leave on a journey of fun and hopefully some self-discovery. Maybe a caribbean cruise will shake the dust off the ol' girl. Cheers!

Fish House Blues

Sketch nearly complete!

This week Arnica Grace found that foggy days interfere with mural making. To make the most of the limited sunshine, we found Arnica ducking under cover between scattered showers.

“If I paint a little every day, it will get done,” said Arnica optimistically when we caught her hiding from a storm cloud under the barbecue umbrella at Beachgate Condosuites and Hotel. So far, the fish house image is coming along, and the big blue fish are looking like a swimmingly good catch.
