Back to Daily Paintings Soon !

I've been doing backbreaking hardwork in the 90 degree heat... but it will all be worth it, I'm hoping. Our big house is a bit too big for us, so we've decided to get it on the market and see what happens.... As a result the painting is on hold for a little while, but I'm 'chompin' at the bit' to get back, so it won't be long, I promise. Please don't desert me, I'm going to be back posting in a little bit.... thanks for the patience... I don't want to lose ANY OF YOU ! thanks, Sandy

Marigolds from Kentucky

I thought the least I could do was leave you with a painting... rather than just a line or two of text. These little humble marigolds were a Kentucky purchase, while looking for appropriate painting subject matter on vacation. I didn't actually paint them until I brought them all the way home. I liked the way they turned out, even though they don't give the 'big impact' of a larger, more colorful bloom..... somethings are just small and delicate, I guess.

Working on the House....

Life is somehow getting in the way of my painting these days. There seems to be only so much time, energy, and stamina. I'll be back to painting and posting SOON ! thanks !
