I've never painted so many paintings in such a short amount of time. And I have been neglecting everything else in my life. Please forgive me for a few more weeks as I love this burst of creativity and the joy it brings me to see the studio filling up with color and new stories. I am only going to post 4 of the images I have completed for Bellevue; I love to show up with new work that no one has seen before. So I am saving the best and will show it here after the show. But after Bellevue I go directly to Coeur d'Alene the following weekend so the posts will be brief until sometime in August.
This is my cellist. I am adding to my little orchestra. I have done the pianist, the violinist and 2 accordianists in addition to this one. Some of them have been street performers but this lady plays in the symphony.
This is about my wish to see fireflies again in this lifetime. I grew up with fireflies in my life when my family drove to Illinois on our car trips to visit the relatives there. It was summer with big family reunion picnics and what I remember best was the home made ice cream and catching fireflies in a bottle while the old folks talked and laughed. It was magic. The hard to see writing in the sky says, "Miracle No. 257".
Cowboy boots. Need I say more? I want a bright red pair to wear everywhere and feel like the FFA Queen. I have never owned a pair. I have cowboy boot envy.
Guess who this is? My rare man, my gentle farmer and husband of 26 1/2 years. He grows the food and I paint the pictures. He is my hero, my rudder, my best friend.
Come see the rest of the new paintings at Bellevue!!
