Everyday I will be posting a painting I have created or am working on, plus comments, tips, and ideas relating to painting.

"Adirondack Chairs" 9x12 acrylic on stretched canvas $175 SOLD
It has gone from Spring to hot weather here in Florida; today it is 88 degrees! At the pool where I go to exercise every day, they have added bright yellow Adirondack chairs this year, so I just had to paint some! But this is the lake shore and my chairs are white, but it still gives the flavor of trying to cool down in hot weather. The colors also are very peaceful in this painting and I added a good amount of shadows to give that coolness. Look at this for a few minutes and feel the peacefulness!
Painting is my passion and I try to paint as much as possible everyday. I love gardening and decorating my home, but when it is hot like it is here in summer, I find my studio is where I want to be! I have also been writing a book about my experiences in the antique shop business. Writing a book is a lot of hard work, what with editing and trying to get one's ideas down in a concise and interesting manner, not to mention the frustrations of using the computer!! I've almost completed it, though. I love so many creative things, including quilting! There just is not enough hours in the day.
