summer fun

 Ive been so blessed with my beach time this year. Im not one to spend a whole day at the beach ( too A.D.D.!) but my morning walks and evenings there have filled me up!

If you haven't been to Donna Greens magical moon foundation garden and farm stand -get there! I loved every bit of it- truly magical!
This tarp is hand painted painted and hangs over a lovely sitting area in her garden. There is also a fairy house village.
Not to mention yummy corn and organic veggies.
Someone is on time out because she won't leave the fish alone in my pond. She barks at them non stop and tries to catch them. The last straw was her biting my beautiful pond plant. Naughty!

Found all these old bottles at the dump. I love putting flowers in them. Winnie is in the background
 ( not sure you can see that but she's meditating on the fish)

This little wren ( on the left) has babies right outside in my studio window box. She hops on the fake bird sometimes and I love that. I watch her come and go with treats ( bugs) for her brood. Shes bold and quite vocal.She  keeps me company while I paint.The babies are soon to fledge. i will miss them.
Bad lighting for this photo- what's on my easel now....

And my start for the next one. I have this down- simple lines are essential for keeping the painting clear and fresh.
Thanks for looking!

I agree, MSW... amazing post. Fun to read... fun to look at. Fun to do this instead of cleaning and hanging and prepping and organizing.....

Oh, how I envy you that beach! Sure, Colorado is beautiful, but I miss the ocean a lot! Something so wrong about no water.
From the dog side of life, we're rooting for Winnie! She knows fish are for fishing.
