Summer so far...

Good Morning!  Happy Friday! :)
 
Summer is flying by and we are loving the warmer weather.  Our garden is sharing yummy tomatoes and zuchini with us.  We've been busy camping and of course I'm always painting.
 
A couple of weeks ago I was able to meet up with a couple of Paint Party Friends! 
Heather from Little Red Henry and Cameron from Paint myself Pretty.
Heather took a photo that I will share when she sends me a copy. 
They were so nice!  ♥♥♥
 
Last weekend I had a little road trip on my own to visit my daughter at college and deliver a painting to its new home in Missoula Montana.  It was an adventure for me.  I stopped off the freeway in the middle of nowhere to explore an old abandonded farmhouse.  I had to shimmy underneath a barbed wire fence to get to it.  It was beautiful.  As I pushed the door of the old house open, a dove flew out the window.  I took that as a good sign.
 
Wishing you all well and Happy!!!
 
I still have some room in my art retreat this fall!
You can find out more HERE!
 
Much Love,
Jenny

  1. Jenny, your painting are unbelievable, I especially love the top one. Amazing! Then I scrolled down to your fabulous pictures. That farmhouse? OMG, what a diamond in the the rough, I would love to restore that! Your painting retreat sounds so wonderful...hopefully I can participate someday...this Fall is already pretty busy for me. Looking forward to hearing how it goes.
