We are all in this together…Colorful hummingbird art with beautiful words…
Going through my files I stumbled upon these bright flower beauties. I painted these over 10 years ago and somehow they never got listed. It’s like weeding the garden only to find a beautiful flower sprouting up in a hidden spot. 🙂

Spring has past in Florida, but we still have so many birds in our yard that when the breeze blows, you can close your eyes…listen…and still feel it…
The Summer sun is particularly brutal this time of year in Florida. Temperatures soar and it is nearly impossible to spend time outside during the hottest part of the day. As I head back to my retreat after a long walk along the ocean, I am always stuck by how parched and dead everything is on the dunes. It looks brittle and bare. But there are these little bursts of color dotting the landscape. Yellow flowers that withstand the most demanding months of Summer. The Beach Sunflower……Summer’s brightest!
I will be away for awhile….see you when I get back!

I went outside today to see if there were any flowers left blooming. In Florida we have a short Winter and then a handful of nice Spring days with bursts of color everywhere. The azaleas…….the bromeliads……and then it all dies………….9 months of HEAT. Not much grows in Summer except the grass and weeds. All of my irises are brown and crispy looking. The lilies look like beef jerky. But this little group of tiny dancers was still celebrating, so I snapped them quickly before the sun was full in the sky.
I will be in my studio painting now for a good long while……..expect some new acrylic work very soon!
