Feet Up, Eyes Closed

If you've been keeping track of me lately, you know I've been pretty busy. Last night, July 4th at 6 pm, I completed my obligations - and quite well if I do say so myself.

Many sincere thanks to those of you who came to my exhibits to see what I've been working on lately. Your support and friendship is truly appreciated.

Today I spent some much needed time staring at the sky from my patio. Man it felt good to sit in one spot. My breath came slowly and gently, with none of the adrenalin of the past several weeks quickening my pulse.
It was lovely spotting the caterpillars in the milkweeds I planted last year for just that purpose.
The coneflowers stared back at me, and I made a mental note to put them on my plein air painting list soon. But not today.
The coreopsis is a nice complement to the more robust coneflower and I enjoyed dangling my feet into their fern-y greenery. It wasn't quite like being on water, but close enough.

Tomorrow I'll kick it in gear again, but for today I'm languishing in the calm that comes with a job well done and friends well kept.

Here's wishing you the same.

I'm so glad you were able to kick back and relax. You're a truly dedicated artist and your devotion provokes me to continue on! Can't wait to see your new plein air work!!!!
