I am, just too glad it's Gladiolus season! This pale lovely was for sale at the local grocer along with some yellows and peach versions.

Hot Days call for a Cool Swim...



This little guy knows what to do! Take off for "a sparkling swim" and I'll bet he can maneuver a lot better in the water, too.

I had such a great time doing this little painting, wax and watercolors everywhere! Using fingers to paint as well as brushes, you really get a feel for the work - HA!

Play with food...


...or paint food!
I can tell I'm hungry but I am trying to be good so, I'll paint a healthy snack and hope that I don't go after the licorice before dinner!

A Little Place in Montana



Here's a little place in Montana. Actually, quite a bit of it is missing, the pages in my sketchbook are about 5 x 10. The ranches appear to go on forever. You should see the mountains!

In Recovery !



Why is it that I need time to recover from "vacation"? Maybe it's all those domestic goddess responsibilities like restocking the larder, cooking, cleaning and making all the dirty clothes clean again after the unpacking that wipes me right out. Then there's the catch up game with all the mail, snail and electronic and dealing with a few surprises, too.

I am definitely in recovery from my "vacation".

Look what I found in Idaho


A Spanish Mission just outside of Coeur d'Alene ID...sure took me by surprise.
I expect to see them in California and Arizona and New Mexico but this one way up north in the Idaho panhandle caught my eye.

Yes, I have been out wandering the country side and here's the proof right out of my little sketchbook. This farm is in Washington state.

Crazy for Lighthouses



The perfect trip was along the Oregon coast with frequent stops for viewing Lighthouses in the wild.

Well, the weather can be wild and it changes quite often!
Here's Cape Arago after the fog lifted.

Take Your Pick



Here we go again...a little bunch of house plants just waiting for me to knock them off!
Actually, these are the only African Violets I can keep without killing them.
