This lemon press/juicer has been used to make lemon pies for five generations of my family. I had bought a bag of lemons to use in still life arrangements --after taking reference photos....we made a pie.
My apologies for my gallery being down for the last few days. which hosts my gallery lost a server. The new server is in place and the gallery is again up and running and even faster!
Currently working on new martini paintings. These should be done hopefully by the end of the long weekend.
I am really going to finish the landscape paintings in the studio.....the Monet style pond and the poppy landscape are on their way to being completed.
I have to weed the flower bed and plant the tomatos---then back to painting!
Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Honey, I'm Home!

Back from the Beach!

Me and my fabulous new camera are home from the beach. I took this picture from my fifth floor hotel room balcony of the birds on the beach. I had a marvelous time. The staff at the Patricia Grand Resort were very nice and the three days went by too fast! I took several pictures of children playing in the surf and on the beach. There will be watercolors of the vacation coming soon.

The baby is coming home for two weeks from Chapel Hill before she starts the summer classes. We will be grilling out and bonding before she leaves home again. She will also bring home great new ideas for paintings.

Well, I better get going. 250+ emails to catch up on and tons of sandy laundry.

Thanks for stopping by!

To the BEACH!!

I am doing my part to stimulate the economy! I have taken my $600.00 from the Government and gone to the beach! I will be back when the cash runs out...
Look for new watercolors of the beach and other new fun paintings when I get home.
