Time Out

If you are wondering what all the commotion is about here today? It's a parade! Some of the local citizens of Down the Highway are lining the streets, just as it gets underway, commemorating the First Year Anniversary of the founding of their colorful town. Spoon float is passing in front of the judges showing off her silvery sheen. Making her golden debut is Marmalade Redbeckia, a new star and latest addition to the neighborhood. She's the only one around who can, without a whimper, stand up to face the summer inferno. She rocks!!! In spite of her demanding schedule, I think it's pretty cool how she magically produced a diminutive clone of herself onto the face of spoon. Nearly everyone is out celebrating with the exception that little imp sachi who is seen pouting in time out. He was caught trying set off a bottle rocket in spite of the ban on fireworks.

You know, every now and then, I paint a little piece of something that seems to really work in a painting. Leaves are exceptionally tough to get right but check out that one little fellow who fell off the stem and is resting half in and half out of ruby red's shadow...that was a special "aha" moment for me! I love it when that happens!!!

Thank you to all of you who have continued to follow this digital little Peyton Place in spite of all the violence in these not-so-still lives...And, thanks for viewing my paintings!

I am offering FREE shipping this summer within the U.S. on all paintings in my Daily Paint Works ebay and  Etsy stores. These small paintings look great in groups of two or more, and add interest and charm to an entry, kitchen, bath, sitting on a bookshelf, or other small areas. 
To purchase online frames, check out the "floater" frames like those shown below. The paintings just gets glued onto it...super easy.
