Still Morning On The River, 8x8 Inches, Acrylic

Mornings this time of year are spectacular.  I've taken to either sitting on my front porch with my camera or my acrylics ('hi' to everyone who drives by, then tells me they saw me...).  Some mornings are rosier than others.  Sunday morning's (below) was really sweet.  Soft, atmospheric colors... very dreamy.  WHAT a weekend.  I'm kind of shell shocked, actually!  
 Saturday morning my partner-in-crime (my husband) got up and came with me to another dog event, so I could maybe get more shots of these pups strutting their stuff.  It was SO much fun - please don't ask if you can come with me, you'll only be miffed at me!  I'm totally absorbed, and no company while I'm at dog events.  As a matter of fact.. I kind of shut the world out, and get in a zone.  I didn't hear the announcer (speaking to ME) saying "LADY WITH THE CAMERA - YOU ARE IN THE SPLASH ZONE..."  duh.  I knew that - but that's where the best shots were!

Then it was the South Coast Open Studio weekend (I'm only doing the August Tour) and I stopped by the Art Stable Gallery, Karen Raus' and Susan Medyn's studio's - then on to a snazzy party with a FOOD TRUCK and tons of fun people.  Seriously.  I really enjoyed myself.  AT A PARTY.  Sunday brought a family party, then picking up at Little Compton Art Show where....
my Water Dancer found a new home!  I will miss that little girl!

And remember 3 years ago when I was on the verge of tears because I never had a puppy who was as much work as a baby?  Little Paco?  I found some quick doodles I had of him in my sketchbook.  Here's one:
 He was a constantly moving target...

  4. The water looks like glass and the shape of the sailboats is stupendous. Love everything about this one. We had a great water week-end paddling the Dragon Boat.
