Sun Ripened Tomato

Private Collection - New York

A very sweet neighbor shared his tomato crop with us, and they are so good!  I love to grow flowers, but I can't grow a decent tomato to save my life.  Thank goodness for generous friends!

I hope you're having a great week!

Amber Mallet Bottle with Muscato Grapes

Private Collection

I loved painting this beautiful amber mallet bottle from Jury Smith's Bottle and Bowl website.  It was fun to see our landscape reflected in the highlight, and it seemed to pair perfectly with the black, muscato grapes.  (Which, by the way, are quite tasty!)  

I hope you have been doing well.  It has been a crazy summer here.  Some wonderful blessings and some difficult life events.  I will write more about that later, but it felt really nice to have a day in my studio to just paint.  There is something so therapeutic about pushing paint around on a canvas, isn't there?

Take care and I will talk to you soon!
