LITTLE BLACK BOOK


Hey Friends, Thought I would show you one of my all time favorites. Why is it one of my favorites? I think mostly, it is the colors. Yeah, I'm a color freak. This one is bright, but soothing or calming. This feeling is the way most gardens/landscapes hit me. Maybe I'm a bit lazy but I love to sit in a garden or patio and just take it all in. The colors, the smells, the breeze, the sounds (birds,water,children,dogs,airplanes). If I'm left alone, reading fits in nicely. I ALWAYS want to take a nap outdoors too, but the bugs won't allow it. AND if you can imagine, someone comes along and fires up that big shiny grill and then the smells of burgers and tomatoes hit ya.
I painted this at my sisters house. I used her furniture, etc. but the colors are mine. This is the way I wanted her place to look. I listed it in my ETSY shop and DESIGN STYLE GUIDE.
Now I'm gonna call my sis and tell her to look at my blog. I'm hoping she will get the hint. This is the perfect day to invite me over for dinner!
Happy Trails.

A garden is my inspiration also! The peace and colors and sounds and smells! My real challenge is leaving once I'm out there! Your painting captures all those sensations beautifully!

Just found your blog and I think this painting is my fave on this page. Like you, I love the color scheme. You're right about that, of course.:-)
