We’re hitting our 100+ degree days now. Tomorrow it’s supposed to be 105 or 107. I’m glad it took until mid-July to occur, because I really don’t like the hot days. I have similar sentiments about mid-winter. I’m sure you can relate.

Still, we’re only 3 weeks away from the county fair, hooray! I just know there will be lots of fun new faces there. I better remember to stock up on camera batteries. 😉

Above are four sold paintings. Can you tell I was on a color theme? I really like the warm ochre. And also, they are all painted with a brush, breaking from my recent knife-painting phase. I have actually ordered more brushes, so expect to see more coming soon!

Oh my gosh, it’s already July. We’re halfway to Christmas. Are you ready?

It’s never too early to ask me to paint something special so you’re ready with a present. No last minutes worries that way. 😉

These lovely dogs are custom pieces recently painted, just to show off a little.

This was one that I started out thinking, “Is this color right? Does this go with that? Am I screwing it up right from the get-go?”


But then I liked it at the end.

I painted a few little pieces by brush this week. I haven’t used a brush in a while, but it came back pretty easily. Well, this style did, anyway. My daughter said, “You’re going backwards,” because I used to paint this style all the time a few years ago. I guess I like it because it’s not entirely predictable what the results will be, and the brush strokes are rough, in fact more scrubbing than painting.


Anyway, he was fun to paint.

I’ve been painting the last couple weeks, so I have several new ones available this week. Yes, doling them out one a day to help etsy’s algorithm keep me at the top of the searches.

Happy Flag Day! Did you get yours hung out yet? I had to run to the store yesterday and buy a new one, because ours was starting to look shabby. Then I put the old one aside, because I know it’s supposed to be disposed of properly, and there probably aren’t boy scouts doing that more than once a year. And looking at the old flag, it’s made out of cotton and could be made into something else–right? I don’t know if that’s desecrating the flag, or celebrating it in a new way…will have to research. I love shabby chic patriotica, and will have to keep my eye open for an idea.

In the meantime, a new sorrel horse painting!
