Smoothing out...

...life, that is. Or at least seems to be. We'll keep our fingers cross and hope for this even keel to continue. I just wanted to pop back in and say a big thank you to everyone's lovely comments on my last post. It still fascinates me that we can become so enmeshed in the lives of those whom we only know through blogland, but the connections are real and wonderful, and your words cheered me up.

I wanted to share all the paintings I've done in the last few weeks - a really fun and varied bunch. I put a little ad up on the Etsy Father's Day showcase, and it really seems to have worked! I was pretty shocked.

Those are just, wow. Lovely, lovely stuff! I need to get my act together and try and find some pics that would work. At this rate, I might have them in time for DH's birthday in October! Glad things are evening out. Hope you all are staying cool in the humid, early summer weather!

You had done a portrait for us a little while back and it really is my favorite piece in our house. I am glad things are looking a little brighter for you. I really enjoy reading your blog. Here's to more sunny days!

Hear, hear to the last comment. I loved all the pictures and I see how these painting can be such a wonderful thoughtful gift to someone in your family (sounds cliche, but true!)

So nice to have you back. Each day I check forty-two roads I expect to learn something, see something beautiful, or be wowed by toddler speak!

Yippie! A new post and FABULOUS paintings. You are amazing and I am so glad we have become friends (real and virtual).

I just love your work! I asked my husband to order me one for mother's day, but he didn't seem to get the hint. I think I'll just have to order my own. Finding just the right picture is the hard part. I'm glad to hear things are looking up for you.
