I returned home from a fun filled few days on Seabrook Island in Charleston, stimulated by all I saw but too tired to paint today. This one sits on my easel begging for my attention. “Sorry, maybe later” Do you ever talk to your paintings? 😂

This is the Episcopal Church I passed every morning on my walk when I lived in Florida, so beautiful in the morning light.

Happy International Cat Day 😻
This old boy isn’t feeling so great today. The little spunky kitten from 15 years ago is all pooped out💙

What a day...so exhausted but so stimulated in the Dawn Whitelaw workshop! Hope I’m still standing at the end of the day on Friday 😂 Here’s my first lay in. So much to learn from this amazing instructor! Thanks Nicole’s Studio and Gallery for hosting!

This studio is not all fun and games, that’s for sure!  I was wondering why my Gamsol was so dirty. Clogged holes, well duh😂

Quick follow up to my last post. I just went back and mom was on the nest. I scared her and she flew out. I will not return to the side of the house again. I will hope she returns and stays💙💙💙
