Here We Are, 6x6"

So, here we are, the beauties that you've been waiting for all summer.  All it took was a little weeding, some pruning, a wee bit of watering, fertilizing, eye rolling, and tongue clicking.  But here we are, at long last.  Now go sit down and enjoy us!

Tishomingo Blues, 8x10" (Sold)

Last weekend, John and I went back to New Orleans, my home town.  One morning, we went to The Court of Two Sisters for brunch on the patio.  A live jazz trio was playing in the background as we feasted on Shrimp Creole, french bread, and Bananas Foster.  I bought the trio's CD (Charlie Fardella and his Sensation Jazz Band) and have been playing it all week as I paint.

This morning, I turned the music up and painted this scene as I listened.  One of my favorite tunes is Tishomingo Blues, so I named the painting after this one.  I learned that it's hard to keep serious and "in the lines" when you're listening to New Orleans jazz!

Morning Reflections, 6x6" (Sold)

This was a really good challenge-- getting those cherry reflections in the silver almost made me cross-eyed!  I entered this one into this week's Daily Paintworks challenge.

The Perfect Day, 10x8" (Sold)

What could be more perfect than a day spent outside when the shadows and sunlight are "just so"?  Sometimes when I'm out with my plein air group, I can't resist trying to capture my fellow artists at their happiest and most industrious.

And Now For a Brief Intermission...

Dear Friends:

A bit of bad luck has befallen me.  Day before yesterday, I broke my right wrist while I was playing tennis.  Since I'm now saddled with a rather cumbersome cast, I may be forced to take a brief intermission from my painting.  But I'll be back!  And I did ask them to cast me with a couple of fingers free, so I may be back at it before we know.

It's a good thing that my husband John is the cook around here.  At least we won't starve.

See you soon!
