Summer Bounty!

 I love having fresh fruits and vegetables from the many local farms that surround my home in Pennsylvania.  Fresh from the fields!  I also always have fresh flowers in my home.  I love seeing all the Summer flowers.  I walk in a park every morning just to see and smell all the fragrant flowers.

I hope you are enjoying Summer!  I love the warm days, although lately there is a touch of chill in the mornings.  Stay awhile Summertime!!!

Christmas in July!!

 I love getting a bonus of Christmas in July!  I enjoy watching Christmas Hallmark movies while the temperature is hot and the humidity high.

I finished my annual Christmas painting which I will preview on this blog soon.

I hope you are celebrating your own Christmas in July!

Fuchsia Frolic

 I just finished the watercolor I was planning on demonstrating at the Kutztown Folk Festival.  I enjoyed painting the bright and cheerful fuchsia and hummingbirds.

I miss being in Kutztown!  We would have had a hot week which is typical weather at the Festival.

Enjoy Fuchsia Frolic!

Remembering the Kutztown Folk Festival!

 Today would have been Day 1 of the Kutztown Folk Festival 2021.  I really miss being there this year and hope for a safe return in 2022!  I will post a few photos from past years shows.  Visit:  www.kutztownfestival.com

Happy Summertime!

Summer is here!

 Summer has arrived with all my favorite things, lightning bugs, thunderstorms, warm and sunny days and sunshine.  Only one thing missing this year for me, the annual Kutztown Folk Festival. A decision was made by the Festival Committee to have another virtual show for 2021, due to the pandemic we are just now finally coming out of.  I am disappointed as I love being at this show with my art every year.  I have reserved my space for 2022.  And will be excited to see everyone again!  

I will post some memories from previous years on this Blog, so come back to visit from June 26 through July 4!  I hope you enjoy the first official week of Summer!

June Roses

 Welcome to the month of June.  Summer begins in this month.  Also a wonderful month to celebrate Father's Day, Weddings and Graduations.  I had fun painting "June Roses".  The quilt pattern on the Adirondack chair is a rose bridal bouquet pattern.  Enjoy June!

Summer Joy!

 Summer Joy is part of a 4 Seasons painting series featuring the same scene of the red country store, barn and rocking chairs adorned with seasonal patchwork quilts.

The farmer's baskets in Summer Joy are filled with freshly picked corn and tasty peaches.

I always love Summer sunflowers!
