Lovely Summer Flowers

Today I have a some summer flowers to share with you. All photos were taken with my iPhone. I love this time of year and always look forward to these pretty views in my yard.

June Daisies

Right outside my door in the evening. This just makes my heart sing!

Yellow Summer Lilies

Oh that golden yellow color. 💛

Single Daisy

Hello beautiful!

Summer Pink Lilies - iPhone photo

I was so excited when these pink beauties bloomed. I’m so glad I was able to enjoy them a few days and got a few nice photos when I did. I expected them to be around a while with all those buds waiting to open.

Unfortunately we had some visitors stop by and eat all of the pink lilies. Looks like I’m going to have to move them closer to the house. I think that will keep them safer from deer and other critters.

What’s blooming in your garden?

Until next time, share a smile and shine on.

Potted plants three in a row

I’m in love with paintings of potted plants and flowers. This week I decided to paint a few.

Hope your day is wonderful, friends! 💚

potted plants - three in a row

9 x 12 inch – Three in a row (a sunny hello)

I imagine these pretty pots sitting on a patio or deck somewhere. I think they would be a cheerful addition to an outdoor space.

A few notes:
– I used mixed media paper here. I might have been better off with my watercolor sketchbook that can handle more water. The paper started giving me trouble at the end and buckled a bit.

– Keeping the color and size of the pots slightly different helps create interest.

– Positioning of the pots is also important. It’s more interesting if the spacing between them is different. I think I was partially successful with this one.

I recently reached 1000 followers here on WordPress. Thank you all for following me on this journey. I appreciate your kind words and support. Starting an art blog and putting my work online for all to see was something way out of my comfort zone. I’m so happy that I jumped in and gave it a go.

I hope you are inspired to create art and do more of what you love. Until next time, sprinkle kindness everywhere.

At the lake…

A few views from last weekend enjoying time at the lake. 🙂

Happy Thursday!

Glorious clouds in the sky photo

The clouds in the sky were big and fluffy.


Huey on the dock at the lake

My dog loves the lake… It didn’t take long until this happened!


Huey splashing in the lake

Lots of swimming and splashing around at full speed. ❤

I wish I had that kind of energy.


Lake weeds at the shore

I just love this view of the grass and weeds along the shore.


Lake weeds in the sunlight

Ahh, the sun peeked out from behind the clouds for a few minutes.


Lake weeds and sky reflection

It is always nice to slow down and enjoy the simple beauty all around.

Until next time, share a smile and have a great week!

Happy Painting!
