No I haven't been this busy!
I rarely do a still life and this was years ago. 1992. It's also a lot larger than the pieces I do now. This is the second of the same subject, someone came along and wanted the first one, so I painted it again, this one for myself. . Since today is first day of summer I commemorate that by posting yet another floral. Happy Summer to all my blogging friends!

Todays Painting

I always feel like I've accomplished something when I've at least painted something for the day. So this was it. I have three African violet plants and they do pretty good for me. I like the looseness of this one and think I'll put it into the Etsy Shop ... As you already know all of my originals are for sale . Friends from Biloxi are coming in this afternoon , so painting is done for the day.

The Wonderful World of Blogging!

Through blogging I met Nancy from Adventures With Paint. We discovered that we live about an hour apart here in hot muggy, soggy Fl orida. We made a plan to meet last Wed. in Dade City, a quaint little town 20 min. from me, but a lot further for Nancy. We had a wonderful day ,walked around visiting some antique shops, had lunch at an interesting in-town restaurant (with real tableclothes and napkins )No paper plates for us that day! We came across an interesting art studio where a lady sits in the window and paints. Fun!! We have a lot in common , she's a Scorpio like me and we had our share of laughing too. I look forward to seeing her again. Thanks Nancy it was a good day for me.

This Is Who?

This little girl was sitting in a sandbox and someone took her picture a long time ago. The little girl is me... I painted it from a black and white photo a few years back...Well, those were days.!
