Beacon Hill Art Walk~This Sunday in Boston, MA.

" There shall be eternal summer in the grateful heart. " ~Celia Thaxter

I 've been pretty busy getting ready for  the Beacon Hill Art Walk in Boston this Sunday from 12 to 6. This is my 12th year showing my work.   It's going to be a beautiful but HOT day. I am looking forward to seeing so many of my wonderful customers who have come every year.  The show itself is quite unique.  It takes place through out the nooks and crannies  of Beacon hill.  Art work is displayed in the lovely court yards and gardens  of this Historical place. 
Hope you can stop by!

Garden Fox-Little paintings

I've been carrying out  a much needed cleanup of my studio in preparation for my  Boston show  next weekend.  I keep finding things I've misplaced like paint favorite brushes  and other materials.  I found a bunch of small canvas panel-boards in various sizes so I decided to do a few fun small less expensive paintings.  I think this little piece would  look great and a kids bedroom ( or an  adults!) Garden Fox is 8x10 painted on a flat canvas panel.   I love little red foxes.  I am working on a 5x7 butterfly as well.  Thank for looking.

Positive Engery II~My new botanical painting

This is my newest painting.  It's 40x30 painted on gallery wrapped stretched canvas.  Working on this painting has been extremely therapeutic.  I have hit a bit of a rough patch in my life concerning my youngest son and working on this painting has helped me in so many ways. 
Thanks for looking.  For sale in my etsy shop

On my easel~Magic Hat 2

This is a fun little piece I've been working on.  I use to love black silk top hats when I was younger. I guess I still do.  My father had a collection of fancy hats he kept up on a high shelf in his closet.  I remember even liking the boxes the hats were in too.  This painting is 14x11 painted on a cradled wood panel.  I hope to have it completed tomorrow.  Thanks for looking.

For Today~

Stress, worry, and anxiety simply come from projecting your thoughts into the future and imagining something bad. This is focusing on what you don't want! If you find that your mind is projecting into the future in a negative way, focus intensely on NOW. Keep bringing yourself back to the present.

Use all of your will, and focus your mind in this very moment, because in this moment of now there is utter peace.  From The Secret.
