looking toward the Solstice
Imagine the colors. Or print it out and add them yourself. I’ll be adding my own eventually.

Pebbles in Pachysandra
On my way across to my studio I saw the local skunk, who made a nominal effort at hiding under the truck. I don’t suppose we’ll ever be friends, but maybe at least neighbors who wave hello?
Then I went to admire the twilight fireflies that I am so happy to have living in my little, unkempt yard.
What I Did On My Summer Vacation
I was out all afternoon and evening at a reception for my oldest niece, first of that generation in our family to get engaged. She tried on my wedding dress, and the one my mother, sister and cousin all wore. Real live princess time!
Below is the painting as I originally posted it. I always have the urge to tidy up “looseness”; I’m not sure that’s always best. In this case though, I like the colors in the finished image better, and it more nearly matches my intent.
