Feeling Peachy :)

I’ve been really busy in the gardens these past months, amending soil, planting seeds, making new garden beds, and hoping for a great harvest this summer. All to say that it hasn’t left me with a lot of energy to paint, but I have had some great sales at the gallery, so I thought I’d share a few…

Peachy SOLD

Speaking of peachy… I have a beautiful peach tree in my back yard. Unfortunately, it usually blossoms out, and then we have a freeze and consequently no peaches. But this year we did not have that last freeze, and I am eagerly anticipating a wonderful harvest of peaches!!! Can’t get more peachy than that, can you? 🙂

Last year I planted a lot of Dahlias, then overwintered the tubers. I’m hoping for a good year of Dahlias again this year. This next painting of one of my dahlias is a small one 5″ x 7″ surrounded by a beautiful ornate gold frame that I had stored away in my studio.

Dahlia SOLD

And a couple of minis… SOLD

And some cards… SOLD

It has been a good month. Hope you all are having a blessed month as well.

As the weather gets hotter here, I’m planning on spending a good amount of time in my studio working on those back alley paintings and whatever else inspires at the moment. But for now you will find me out gardening…

On my way to our local garden center Terra Cotta to buy some plants for my porch pots. 🙂

Happy gardening everyone, get some sunshine and dirt on those hands… it’s good for your health.


Day 28 ~ Spring Waits

Underneath the snow and cold, underneath the rich black and brown dirt, the daffodils, jonquils, narcissus…wait. Waiting to burst forth in beautiful blooms announcing that spring has come. And for all you living up north in the midst of that polar vortex…just know…spring waits…it will come.

I’m thinking about putting a bee or a butterfly or a frog or a lady bug on the other side…???
