favorite breakfast

I guess you could say I'm on a health kick lately.  
I have been juicing like crazy,
eating a lot of raw foods,  
and enjoying summer-time's yummy deliciousness!
My favorite breakfast is 
plain yogurt 
fruit 
and 
granola...
love it!  
I really need to pick up a paintbrush...it has been a while...
maybe soon:)

juice and soup

loving freshly made juice
especially the 
carrot, apple, and strawberry

and even if it is 100 degrees outside, I still love a bowl of homemade soup!
(this was potato leek chowder with turkey bacon)
yummy to my tummy!

another strawberry afternoon

I love a yummy strawberry cake.  
And this one was probably the tastiest I've 
ever made.  
Totally from scratch....delish!

Monday Recovery

 Yesterday I had the most fun with these little seeds that fell from the sky...
It's funny how the simplest things in life can make you the happiest.
I so love their
texture
and
colors!

this one looks like a landscape to me....


I couldn't resist...
these sweet little seeds looked like wings...





Happy Monday to you!  
I hope your day is sweet and full of spring-time love!

wish you could smell this!


 I am in love...again....
This time with beautiful, fragrant wisteria.
Years ago, my mom had wisteria growing on a tree in her backyard,
and now I have it growing in my backyard!
This is the view from the inside of our screen porch...


purple petals, purple toes...**love**



I think this may be my favorite pic from today...



Can't keep my hands out of the petals, either! 



love the purple and gold together in this one...
sweet complements


 and as much as I adore purple...
I also love this one in in antique light...
how divine!
 

What's blooming in your yard????

monday recovery

 I needed a rainy weekend to finish some paintings I've been ignoring for quite a while.
I recently found my old high school notebooks.

I found my notebook doodles quite interesting...
I wanted to add some color to them...and this is the result....
The colors reminded me of 80's Cosmetics...
How appropriate...that's when I had this class.
enjoy!!

flying red eye


 a few more paintings with 80's colors...

salty and sweet


crimson tubes

and one more...

blue mascara


----------------------------------
This is a painting I've been working on for quite a while!
I have been working from a photo that I took of 
downtown market square a few years ago.

whew! I'm tired!

80's Cosmetics


I'm working on a new set of paintings...
80's Cosmetics...
because I loved the 80's so much...
and the colors are so perfect!
Wait and see...
I think you'll agree:)

of course, you have to listen to the 80's while painting....

I feel totally alive and energetic with this color palette!
sneak peek...
