Summer Quilting

Even on a cold day like today, I have to imagine that someday it will be Summer and I will no doubt be quilting.  Even dreaming of Summer seems to warm me up a bit.

Memories of Summer

It’s gray and windy here today.  As I look out my window, the trees are mostly bare with just a few clinging leaves.  Warm sunny days seem only a memory now.Summer Memories 2

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!

Day 30 Sail Away

Whew!  This is the last day of the 30 day challenge.  It’s been fun, but I think I will let my paint brushes stand idle for awhile.  Today’s painting is another commission for Karin.  I haven’t done a sail boat before, but I’m happy how it turned out.  It’s also fun to think about warmer days , though the 31 degrees we are supposed get up to today already seems balmy (everything is relative!)  Congratulations to all the other 400 or so artists that have been posting to Leslie Saeta’s blog everyday this month.  It’s been wonderful to see.
