The last Monday....

Accessing a Place of Wildness


Star Spangled Dream
(home sweet home)

This is the last Monday before school is out and everyone got out the door without much of a fuss this morning. There are field trips, parties and an 8th grade graduation to keep us busy and then just like that another school year will have ended and next year I will have kids in elementary, middle and high school. I meant to post these two new paintings Friday but am finding myself very distracted by my four new office mates. They are all chirping away right behind me as I am writing this and then all of a sudden there is quiet (which draws me over to the box to see them all snuggled together in a big fuzzy, sleepy pile). "Accessing a Place of Wildness" is actually painted on a piece of scrap wood from the coop : ). Today the chicks move to a bigger box and I paint more boards for the coop which is coming along nicely. The bounty at this weekends' farmers market reminded me of the joy of summer dining. A bit of this, a bit of that all enjoyed outside and savored. Because of the extreme weather things are coming in a bit slow but there are lots of great greens, radishes, carrots and spring onions around right now. Lots of salads going on in these parts...what's in season and on your table?

Lovely pieces. Our veggie garden is so sad this year due to the cooler weather. Lettuce looks good and the peas have a blossom.
