Summer . . .

Summer is here, it is right now. I think about time and how it swiftly moves, it's wings wafting carelessly over our heads without any desire to slow. We watch and can't help but stare, hoping with our hearts and minds that time would land one day on the porch, by the swing hanging there, ready for us to lounge in. But sadly, time wafts on, carrying on, lifted higher by breezes we cannot see and by winds we cannot feel. Time is the enemy of artists. We create and time goes by, we paint and time laughs at our efforts. We try again and again, but time changes everything, from our styles, to our supplies, to our subjects. Time molds us into artists that we never knew we could be. Time . . . what does it mean to you?

Here are two more on ebay!

Well, here are two more paintings that I listed on ebay tonight. . .




And this next one is a result of being inspired to try cardboard as a painting surface! I got inspired by Mystele from Little Glimpses Studio. Click on her name to go to her blog if you want to see her beautiful art and her cardboard creative creations in paint! (Thanks, Mystele, I love working on cardboard!)

A poem I wrote

When the night
is dark and ebony
breezes blowing
crickets chirping,
I think of you,
reaching to me
from years past
from memories in my mind
from photos in my book
silently watching me paint
as the night grows late
I feel the breeze on my cheek
and know you are there

Here is an impressionistic floral I finished . . .

I gave this painting to my sister-in-law for
her birthday . . . lots of birthdays lately . . .

More New Art . .

This painting is in my daughter's room.

When I was finished with it, she wouldn't let me sell it.
