Photos of the Week

This week is all about the yellows! The sunflowers and rabbit-brush exploded around here so I took a little walk with my trusty camera.  I've missed doing that.  I forgot how much joy I get from noticing the beauty around me and photographing it.  It's such a gift.

Sometimes painting small and fast is refreshing, especially after laboring over a detailed painting for hours and days.  It's then that I want to create something beautiful and paint it fast!

Happy September! 
I really wanted to go peach picking this year, but since I'm not able to, these peach flowers will have to do.
