Dog days of summer

It has been hot, grey and drippy in South West Florida.
Day after day of it.
So I pulled out my paint and my yupo and made a colorful statement.

Yet another background.  I had to come up with a plan rather than adding it to my growing
collection of backgrounds.

I am not done yet.  I think I will stamp a few solid white letters around.
So that was one day.
The next day I took on an old background  (from the "collection")

I spent hours cutting out my stencils
But I got a nice a flower arrangement for my efforts.

In the midst of the grey drippy weather, two of my orchids are blooming

I wish you could smell them.  They have the lightest, most delicate scent, each one different from the next.
Wishing you a Happy Paint Party Friday!


  1. Beautiful work, love the colours you have used - a good balance to the cold and drippy weather! Have a nice weekend, happy PPF, hugs, Valerie
