is summer really over already?

 I am a pessimist, and as I kid I was thoroughly depressed about summer ending by mid July. Around this time I would have resigned myself to the horror of ever present back to school paraphernalia lining store shelves and plastering the covers of magazines and catalogs (catalogs are the worst- they like to remind you summer is ending as soon as it has begun)! Hopefully I will never have to go back to school again except in my nightmares, so the preemptive fall makes me a little less bummed out each year, the older I get. And who doesn't love fall, with it's leaves and warm fuzzy things?

finished commission

Just finished this 2 x 3 foot commission on wood panel for the lovely Ellen of her two daughters...she wanted something with a similar feel to this one. Sadly the photo is a little blown out, and doesn't show all the greeny blues in the water.

Have a fun weekend!

I just impulsively bought this adorable tank top from Mammal & Lamb after seeing it in Noƫlle's favorites. I made it a little more than a month (the longest I've gone in the last two years) since my last Etsy purchase, and was having serious withdrawals. Plus I know even if I don't wear this little gem of a shirt, Esther, my sister from another mother, will look super cute in it.
Have a fun weekend everybody! Time for me to get more painting done.

pretty lips

I am procrastinating and eating a pb&j sandwich right now. Aren't these lips pretty! Dark Red Lip Gloss and Stain by Mojo Spa

camping trip photos

Some blurry iphone photos from our trip. We got super nerdy on day three...I discovered whittling, my new favorite past time, and our friend Marcos fashioned a bow and arrows which he lost repeatedly to the poison oak surrounding us.

i'm back from the woods!

Back from a kinda fun camping trip. I brought home a deer tick in my hair, and Kai got a tiny bit of poison oak as a souvenir from our time in the forest in Mendocino. I think I am done with camping for a while. My next vacation will be tick free and must include showers! Maybe I will share a couple photos from the woods later today after I get some painting done.

new painting

Casting Shadows, available here.

pink and blue

Sorry for the weirdly aligned images. I really need to learn Photoshop. So, it's Monday yet again, and here are a few things I have my eyes on.  Lip Tint Hoarder Pack for only $20, you belong in my tiny purse! These sweet vintage 40s Sailor's Gal heels at a size 6.5-7 are sadly a bit too small for me, but what about you?  I definitely wouldn't mind owning this totally fun, Vintage Tropical Fern Crinkled Swimsuit. And this stunning Peach Champagne Sapphire and Diamond in 14k rose gold ring would sure make my bare and bony fingers happy.

Have a fun weekend!

Hope you guys have a great weekend...any fun plans?? We are going to an opening for a group art show Kai is participating in at Quicksilver Mine Co., and then having a big old bbq, probably accompanied by more Jamaicaritas!
