MOUNTAIN POPPIES, 5x5, OIL
I find it hard to believe that summer is gone. One of the disadvantages of living in Florida is that we have not had much of a weather change yet. It is hard to get excited when instead of 95 degree days we are having 91 degree days. If it wasn't for the stores who have displays of colorful leaves and pumpkins, we would still be wearing white! As a result, here I am, still painting summer scenes!

7:15 AM, 18 SEPTEMBER 2010, MELBOURNE, FL, OIL, 6X8 SOLD
This year is another story. Beautiful, dry, days that remind me of our October and November weather. As a result, we are also having the most beautiful and colorful sunrises and sunsets. You know what they say about silver linings..I guess this is it.

GLAMOUR GIRL, 8X6, OIL
In the 1940's, all our mothers aspired to this type of glamour and sophistication. I have to admit, I much prefer this type of image to the slutty chic portrayed by today's "role models".

ANTIQUE FRENCH TEAPOT, 16X16, OIL
I am sort of an Etsy fanatic and I found this teapot listed on a site http://www.dandeliondecor.etsy.com/. I contacted the owner of the site, a very nice French woman, and she gave me permission to use her photograph for this painting. She still has the teapot, so if anyone wants to buy it, along with my painting, it can happen! Wouldn't that be fun?
Today is my granddaughter, Courtney's birthday. She is sweet 16 today. Remember when we used to say "sweet 16 and never been kissed"? Hmmm, I will need to talk to her about that. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, COURTNEY!

QUEEN ANN'S LACE, 5X7, OIL, SOLD
I always try to take at least one long walk with my camera when I am in North Carolina, you never know what you will find. Last time, I found these pretty little flowers next to the road.

MOUNTAIN CHURCH III, 6X8, OIL, SOLD
This sweet little Blue Ridge Mt. church has a graveyard behind it, which I thinks adds to it's charm. These little churches are scattered all over the mountains and valleys of western North Carolina.

MOUNTAIN CHURCH II, 6X8, OIL, SOLD
If you follow this blog you may remember a post from last week of a mountain church. This is number two in what may become a small series. I find it to be very interesting painting these little churches. They all have their own personality. I had an interesting afternoon traveling from one to another taking photos. Today is Labor Day and it has been dark and rainy and seemed like the perfect time to pull out my easel and give one of these little churches a try. This one is located in western North Carolina in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
