Summer Dreams

8"x10" oil on stretched canvas, gallery wrapped with sides painted (design continued around sides)

Yesterday a couple neighbors and I went up to Boston for the annual Spring Flower & Garden show. It is spectacular- and quite amazing how they bring in all these huge flowering trees and shrubs, granite slabs, stone fountains, etc.  to set up those wonderful exhibits!  We come away feeling like we've been on a great vacation far away.  It is definitely the turning point that makes things feel like Spring is really officially here. I know it's been on my mind non-stop - warm weather, sitting out under the shade trees, with cut peonies from my garden in a big jug on the table.  

The garden is beginning to show signs of life! Tulips, daffodils and Spanish Bluebells are poking through the soil, working hard to grow, waiting for those warm days when mankind and plant-kind feel great turning our faces to the sun!

I'll bet you were itching to paint all of those beautiful flowers!!!
There is a community garden in South Pasadena that is calling me right now. It's a fairly long drive, but it's always so beautiful and I love painting there.
Don't know if there is space to paint in a busy Flower and Garden Show, but it would be pretty!!!

On another note: For some strange reason many many many people visited my website today -- you among them. I can't figure out why. I didn't upload a new painting, I didn't blog, I didn't send out a newsletter --- nothing, but the stats are astronomical...
Perhaps you can write back to let me know why YOU visited my webpage today... I'm dying of curiousity!!
Love that thick paint you love as well!!
