Wishing you a spectacular Fourth of July!  

Garden Roses, 4th of July | happyandsimple.wordpress.com

I’m sitting out on the patio enjoying freedom, sunshine, birds chirping, and these gorgeous roses from the garden.  About to head out and celebrate with a family BBQ.

Posts have been sparse around here lately due to long work hours.  The promised DIY planter has been built – just need to paint it!  And… plans for a fun outdoor table also on the way!

Apparently I am computer illiterate.  I joke all the time that my parents don’t what they’re doing on a computer!  Now it’s me!  I keep attempting to post on my new ‘spinoff’ blog – but wordpress automatically brings me back to my home blog.  Sorry – I will figure it out soon. :)  p.s. – This is a painting I did of Juno – my sister’s pup, rescued from the Joplin tornado a few years ago.

 A Valentine’s Day treat recipe will be posted in the next few days!

Tiny (5x7) Mountain Road Trip Painting

Painter’s block no more!  The last several months, I’ve started a few paintings and just couldn’t quite bring myself to finish them.  They were all very true-to-life detailed pieces… perhaps that was the problem.  So, this morning the sun was shining brightly in my work room and I pulled out a palette knife and a tiny (5×7) less-daunting canvas and got to work.  These thoughts were my inspiration:

It’s a sunshine-filled day and you’re on the open road.  You find it hard focus on driving as your gaze strays to the distant snowcapped mountain range.  Minutes later, it’s all a blur in your rear-view mirror and you’re wishing for a pause button.  So, I paused the sunny-skied view stuck in my thoughts and focused less on details, more on the broad scope.  This was the result.
