I've been extremely busy in a very happy, creative and productive way. I made more space in my garage to paint larger paintings and I got busy making frames to stretch canvas over so I could paint, paint and paint some more. The above image is on one of the big 4ft x 5ft canvasses that I made and it's a scene I saw while on my vacation in Florida. I had such an amazing and incredible time and I wanted to recapture a little of what I saw while there.
I have the subject for my next painting picked out and I will start painting it this week, preferably tomorrow. My daughter is leaving in two weeks to attend university in Turkey and we have been spending as much time together as possible while shopping and getting her ready to go. I will miss her so much.
I've been reading lots and going to movies and hanging with family and friends this summer, which turned out to be so hot this year. I love it and I love drinking my coffee on the deck every morning while writing in my journal. I will even bundle up and sit out there on the not so hot days. All is so good in my world. I hope it is in your world too. :)
