the past few months have been a wonderful whirlwind! i have loved painting in my newest series ‘in the garden’….five soulful paintings emerged, (so far!) and i am beyond grateful.
these two out of the five have found homes in private residences on Maui, and a couple of more are Maui bound as i write this. i’m working with an amazingly talented interior designer there, and i absolutely love her work…so i feel completely honored that she shows my paintings to her clients!
it was a long winter here along the gulf coast of texas! not anything like what some experienced up north, but, for me…well, let’s just say i’m not a winter person! i’m thrilled to see everything in bloom…or close to it! our newly transplanted crepe myrtles made the shocking move…(some friends of ours are re-landscaping, and the crepes were not in the new design!!! lucky us!) the leaves are now budding out! they survived!
this is the perfect kind of weather for me to be painting outside! one of my favorite spots is on one of our front porches…top or ground floor! the wonderful ocean breeze is enchanting, as is the sound of the waves. speaking of…here’s a photo of my painting partner, and creative muse, laynee (the light of our lives!) painting with me last year on the porch! i’m sure there isn’t anything better than painting with a little one! they are so uninhibited by anything or anyone! totally free! it’s contagious! we have quite the little gallery going on for her as well…i’ll share in an upcoming post! if she is so inclined, when we have visitors…and she wants to give them one of her paintings…she does! it’s quite endearing!
i’m happy you’ve found me here, and i’m glad to have a place where i can share with you about my art, and my sweet and simple life here on the island!
