July Porch


"July Porch"

This is one of my favorite times of the year.
Flags flying, and warm weather!
Petunias in pots on the patio and porch...
geraniums reaching for the sky,
Cooking hamburgers on the grill,
sprinklers going in the yard!
The smells are great! Especially if it rains.
Watching the crops grow...
barn swallows feeding their babies......
wonderful summertime! and wonderful freedom!

Traffic Lights


'Traffic Lights'

After spending nearly a week in NY, with my daughter and grandson,
I thought I would get out a painting that I did a couple of years ago. It is painted on watercolor paper coated with gesso. What is missing in this painting is all of the cars, taxi's and honking!! Maybe I can add that in the next one! Cars and taxi's anyway.
