I know, I know... photo-overload!!  My little corner of the world has become so important to me; over the years I've plugged away at making the interior a reflection of who I am, the things I love, and how I live my life... and every year, there's a few short months where I get to extend this practice to the great ole outdoors.
I thought I had wrapped up the outdoor projects for the year, aside from the usual weeding, mowing, and trimming, and was ready to sit back and enjoy the view from my hammock... that is, until yesterday when I acquired two new chairs from a garage sale.  What's one more refinishing project?

Happy sweet, sweet Saturday ya'll!

Peony in Purple


Now, here are a couple of paintings that I've been meaning to post for months... Peony in Purple is a May baby, and Mauve came about when there was still snow on the ground.  Both were an attempt at something different... new colours, new subject matter (well, a different perspective at least), and smaller canvas sizes.
There's another three bright, summer-hued pieces from June just hanging around the dining room waiting to be photographed... but, who wants to be inside on a sunny 30 degree day?!
Not I.
