Mid-August. Summer has flown by at breakneck speed and I find myself gulping in these last weekends in deep breaths, hoping to slow the clock somehow- add just a bit more summer. It has been a season of people- great friends, family, some newly added to our already full basket of blessings. Tonight I am in my little magic studio- twinkle lights ablaze, Pandora on the Nora Jones station (great). I took this pic from the yard to give you a sense for what an evening with a glass of wine, music, and paint can be. Memorable. Tomorrow I will post the little palm tree piece I am working on tonight. Sheer joy.
