Collecting Flowers


Here's a piece that I've been working on in a program called Painter.
Years ago I used it on a regular basis.  As my projects required more layers & a more universal software I eventually found my way to Photoshop.  I've missed all the textures & brush that Painter has to offer & I recently got the updated program.  (So crashing is less of an issue now- which is always a huge YAY!)

See Ya Later Summer!


Labor day weekend is always a little bittersweet.
Summer is my favorite season but all good things come to an end.

Most of my summer check list has been completed:
  1. -eat lots of watermelon
  2. -add sprinkles to most things
  3. -play in the sun
  4. -keep the flowers alive
  5. -swim like a fish
  6. -gracefully let go of the season... (still working on this one)
*Now I'll start shopping for sweaters!

Toning it down.


I've been on a grey kick lately.  
This is unusual for me as I typically like to paint with 
a palette that looks like a rainbow.

What's wrong with this picture?

Looking good in all the spots she should NOT be.
(P.S. Sophie's not allowed on the couch. I can sense her inner delight!)

Solar Eclipse


Did you see it?  The Solar Eclipse was at high visibility in Kansas City.  We joined my son's 4th grade class & watched from a baseball field.  The excitement & energy of kids added to the fun of this astrological phenomenon.   Until next time! (which is in 2024)
