This month's block includes one of my oil paintings from a few years back along with the watercolor. This is a painting of two of our horses, Taffy and Star.
Look carefully and you will see the use of these paintings in the block below which I have submitted in October. It will be used for August having the birthstone color of Peridot. It is the companion block to the one I submitted last month. This green is not a favorite of mine and my first thoughts were that I had nothing in this color family to use on my block. You know how we tend to buy things - even supplies - in colors we love, and avoid colors we aren't quite as enthusiastic about? I was surprised when I found a few items I had in the Peridot color!
