Edsel and Eleanor Ford's Island

This island is a pleasant place to walk. Right now, it is abundantly covered with wild and domestic flowers. These are "Virginia Bluebells," Mertensia virginica. This is part of the Ford Estate. The brightness in the background of the first picture is the lake, Lake St. Clair. It was darker in the grove, so the lake was washed out.

And, here is one of my new art pieces, a watercolor a la Tom Jones. (I've been doing lots of art been I've been too busy to post it.)

Beautiful watercolor. Which Tom Jones? The singer, the book or some other one?

Lovely watercolor. The photos are also beautiful, especially the "Virginia Bluebells".

I think it's time for a 'one woman show.'

I love that top photo, but love your art piece more! It is wonderful.

WOW! Thank you all VERY MUCH!! Woohoo!

You are very kind.

Tom Jones, in this case, is an artist. He has how-to videos for watercolor which my teacher likes to show.

I can't "show" this piece, since it is "after" Tom Jones and since I've already given it away to Andrea.
