I love long summer evenings...

...when I can escape the dinner dishes and spend time simply watering the flowers.  

I'd much prefer to stare at the echinacea bobbing around in the lazy evening sunshine and leave the dishes and the busyness of the household behind.

I'm having fun with this change in my painting for now and thought I'd try another one with the acrylic paints. Hope you like it!

I let the spinach go to seed...

The spinach has come and  gone in my garden, but I have an envelope of little seeds to plant again soon. I started this painting about a month ago when the spinach was reaching tall and going to seed. Oh, I love the cycle of the garden.

I've tried something new with this painting, incorporating a small drawing on paper with the acrylic painting on canvas board. A bit of collage, painted backgrounds AND plants - I know, I'm getting really crazy over here!

I hope your garden is humming along!
