Flower Girl full of whimsy and surprise. Naive, innocent and sweet. She surrounds herself with bitsy blooms. Flowers in her hair, flowers everywhere. Happy Sunday, happy week.
Painting whimsy. Two new projects in my year long journey. Love bloom, a color wheel, summertime picnic, floral bloom. Bird Blossom whimsy in flight and a greeting delivered on the wing. Calling on my inner child for advice.

Sitting in the shade with iced coffee watching dog TV happening in the yard. A good Craig Johnson Longmire mystery and a nap in the hammock. A new way of eating, can […]
