Bees and things...

Working on some new summery paintings.  The nice weather and all the new blooms makes it easy to get inspired and capture  the early flowers.  (and bugs, bees, etc.)

Artisan Barn Sale

The barn fair was so much fun!  It was a beautiful day to drive out to the country and see what area artists and crafters had to offer.  I think I spent any profit on other artists' wares! Happily, one of my original paintings went to a good home.  It's always a good feeling. :)
Part of the profits from sales went to a local Parks and Recreation playground project.

 My displays were propped up on barn walls, tables, and any extra barn pieces we could find.

this fabulous former dairy barn is used for fundraisers, weddings and parties all summer and fall.  The generous owners have refurbished and decorated it for many community uses.  I felt lucky to be a part of this venue.

As I was walking around the neighborhood on a recent spring morning, a shower of crab apple blossoms fell around these bright tulips.  Of course, this could be snow.  It's been that kind of spring!

To top off a great trip, I got the great news that I won this year's poster contest for the Skaneateles Lavender Festival.  This is especially nice because the proceeds benefit the SPCA animal shelter.
