Here’s a good book It’s a long hot summer folks here in the south and one of my favorite things to do (when I’m not painting) is to read down by the lake, so I wanted to share one of my great summer books , “The Bridges of Madison County” by Robert James Waller. The story is about Robert Kincaid, a photographer searching for covered bridges and a housewife Francesca Johnson who is searching for girlhood dreams. One true love, covered bridges and dreams you will encounter in this short read. I really truly recommend this book, I’m taking it down to the water today to reread as I always do each summer….. the book is worn and coming apart, but still has magic………..kind of like life at times?
Christmas in July….and there will be angels
Every Christmas I create a new series of paintings that I sell at Smellie Bloomers, a local gift shop in Elizabethtown, NC. The first year I painted Santas, the second year I painted snowmen and last year I had a reindeer theme. Each year I listen to my friends and family and get ideas from them as to what Christmas subject they would like to see me paint. I am happy to announce this will be the year of angels, afterall couldn’t we all use a few more angels in our lives? Okay, let me get back to my easel and continue on one angel that I’ve already started……….ooooh, I think there might be an angel give-away coming up in the future, what do you think?
Colorful Frivolous Pedi
I love to use bright colors in my paintings and last week I decided to give myself a pedicure. Voila! The bright colors found their way from my palette to my toes. Happy lazy days of summer to all of you, thanks for stopping by!
