Summer in the Desert

 This picture was taken on a recent trip
 to the Desert Botanical Garden. 

I love the juxtaposition of the beautiful
delicate flowers, alongside the stiff piercing thorns.

It reminds me of life. 

Summertime is coming. It's held off until
now, and we've had such beautiful weather. 

My husband and I were on our walk this morning
and talking about how this is the longest we've gone
into the year without having to turn on the air conditioner. 

Thanking God for that blessing!

The following are a hand full of some
recent pieces I've painted. 

My husband cut a silhouette of Arizona
out of pine wood for me on our scroll saw 
and I did my thing. Cheerful as
cheerful can be. I really love the 
way this turned out. 

This is a landscape I did on a gallery wrapped
canvas with acrylic paint and posca pens. 

A couple of sweet kitties. . .

and two colorful fish, finish
out the bunch. 

Now it's time for me to get back to work
on a couple projects. 

I hope you're having a wonderful day!

Catching Up!

Things started getting really busy
around here once the holiday season started 
and it's been hard to get back in the 
swing of blogging ever since. 

I've missed my blogging friends
though, and look forward to touching
base and saying hello. 

Here are a few of my creations
from the past months. 

I hope you're having a wonderful week!
