"First Friday Flowers" and Happy 4th of July!

I put the arrangement from our First Friday Art Walk to good use during open hours on Saturday ... painting and painting and painting. Pretty much fell on the couch and that was it that night. My "White Swans" ballerina painting is in progress on the easel behind the flowers at the Atelier. The photo is definitely not doing this one justice. I'll try again tomorrow.

Yesterday was delivery day for a commissioned portrait "Sisters" (Madeline and Charlotte). It has already met with enthusiastic approval but needed final "processing" -- framing, varnishing, photographing to leave the nest.

Hope you enjoyed the 4th of July!

Thank you for reading!
