“That beautiful season the Summer!
Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light;
and the landscape
Lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood.”
–   Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

This painting is available HERE

This little princess of mine is turning 11 on Thursday. She is not your average princess and I can’t help but thinking  that dandelions might just be her cup of tea.  She is exasperating, unpredictable and absolutely amazing and she has always been those things.  At the beginning I felt like I couldn’t figure her out, and one day I would understand and know her better. Now I realize, not always being able to figure her out IS knowing her. She loves dandelions just because no one else does. That is just the way she is. We have an enormous amount of dandelions right now so she is  happy as is  Jack, our tortoise, because he loves to eat them! Happy days.

Happy Birthday Scarlett, I love you so much.

If dandelions were hard to grow, they would be most welcome on any lawn. ~Andrew Mason

My peony looks small still but it is growing stronger everyday. It is always such a pleasant surprise to see which plants made it through our long cold winter.

Inspired by Picasso

Picasso has played such a huge role in inspiring me to paint. Maybe not so much as how to paint but to actually put my brush to work. He once said “inspiration finds us when we are working” and this has been my mantra for almost 10 years now. I discovered, the hard way, that sitting around and ‘thinking’ about painting will never, ever inspire me to paint. The more I work, the more I am inspired. I must always keep the wheels turning. I feel I owe so much to Picasso and I did this painting years ago in order to thank him for helping me in discovering my voice. I have never made a print of this work before, this is the first time I have made this one available as it is from my private collection.
