American Flower Pot

We had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend here.  Warm weather has finally arrived!  The trees  just about have all of their leaves and the world is glorious.  Our little town of Antioch, IL (pop. 8500 or so) has put up American flags on all the light posts downtown.  It’s a little slice of midwest Americana.  That’s probably what inspired this  piece.  Flowers and flags put a smile on my face!

Summer Sailors

I finally got my paints out again.  I’m dreaming of warm, summer days spent on the water.  How about you?Image
