Ah, the lazy days of summer. The swinging bench under the pergola is my favorite place to read and sketch. I can see everything from there, on "my mountain". ha ha I finished a couple of paintings last night that I hope to post on Ebay later. One of them is a girl trying to do yoga with a few affectionate cats around her. They are probably breaking her concentration. I have never tried yoga, but I have a friend who swears by it. Maybe it is something I should try!
I am a self taught artist who has always enjoyed creating anything from a flower garden to the perfect meal. Now that my children, (ages 23, 26, and 27) are all grown up, I have more time to create! I also work 4 days a week during the school year with special needs preschoolers--which I dearly love! The children in my life inspire many of my paintings.
