1 - I picked up a Moleskine watercolor notebook back in New England, and started doing quick paintings as a sort of journal of our travels. This trumpet vine kept me company in South Carolina while Kevin watched swallows and swans near Jim Bakker's compound.
2 - I am endlessly obsessed with Becca Stadtlander's whimsical paintings as of late. The way she captures fields... be still my heart.
3 - The sunflowers behind our house are finally blooming, and most of them are deep red or exploding red and yellow like this one. The soil back there isn't great, so most of them reveal their radiant faces and then flop over, but this one is standing strong.
4 - Kevin and I have been working on things, as always, and are hoping to get our online shop up and running in the coming days. I had to pry myself away from my pile, as this yellow tree was waving to me through our big back window. It's a few blocks away, so I grabbed a few cameras, strolled over, and visited. I decided that he needed to be showcased on a new banner, which made me realize how badly this space needs a facelift. So that's under works too, keep peeking around as stuff gets updated.
