some.some.some.summer

So the ‘official’ start of summer was eons ago the unofficial mark is today, the 4th of July. We had our first hurricane, ART. appropriate.

.

A lighthouse seems like the perfect ART piece to celebrate summer. I will be painting some big dogs today, and just finished a really romantic commission from groom to bride, but will wait until after the wedding to share that one – surprises are important !

So enjoy your day and your summer season – we have already vacationed and have some things to attend to – freshman orientation at Virginia Tech, summer soccer training, and maybe some just plain laying by the pool.

Beach Life

I just can’t get the sea off my mind – when I was young we went to Maine a lot . Recently a couple of my college buddies did a mini tour of New England (maybe more like New England Pubs) and posted pictures of the coast in RI – I couldn’t go due to kids activities – but I did manage to squeeze in a painting – (and a couple of cocktails) so I was almost there.
