What a lovely reminder to slow down & enjoy life. I sometimes feel like I’m in a competition for who can create the most to do lists. It’s great to have goals, but it’s OK to take a break & relax when you need it too.
I love being able to step out into my backyard first thing in the morning for fresh flowers. Very thankful to my home’s previous owner for planting the enormous white hydrangea bush I’ve ‘borrowed’ from time & again.
It’s always a treat when I’m offered the chance to create art in a style I’ve never done before. These are some of the sketches I recently did for a 1920’s/Great Gatsby-themed wedding invitation with a modern twist.
These fuchsia flowers in my garden are almost too gorgeous to be real. When I was a child, they were always my favorite blossoms to see when my mother would take me to visit a local greenhouse because they reminded me of ballerinas with their bright, poofy ‘tutus’. Now I love them for being easy to grow and adding vibrant color to the shady spot next to my front porch.
