Every day when I wake up in this house, I’m inspired to create art. From the endless supply of fresh fruit, to the abundance of adorable wildlife in my garden, each and every day is a wonderful gift of inspiration!

This weekend I finished up a piece I’ve been working on in preparation for the “Bolton and Harvard Open Studios” event that will be here September 28-29. I’ve got a lot of new pieces to share that will also be available for purchase and I’m adding this beauty to the art shop wall this week!

It’s a rather large painting measuring 18” x 24” and filled with bright and vibrant flowery blooms. Of course, in every garden inspired painting I do, there are 3 ladybugs and 4 bumblebees hidden among the florals to represent my 3 kids and 4 dogs, who are all the loves of my life! Couldn’t have ever asked for a better group to surround me each and every day!

Wanna see more photos of this painting? Here you go! And it is available here for purchase.

Have a wonderful week and enjoy the first week of school if it’s starting for your crew! Ours begins on Wednesday and if I’m honest, I’m crushed that they won’t be with me all day every day. Gotta find a new norm and new routine! Funny that the kids are more excited than the parents in this house. But I’m excited for them and can’t wait to hear all about their new adventures and what the year will hold. We’ll have a middle schooler too, so that will be a new thing for all of us!

With summer fast approaching a closing date, I’ve been trying to create some new pieces to add to my online art shop. Small works of art that are easy to find a special place to sit and cheer up a room! It’s no secret that I love flowers so most of my pieces focus on flowers because they bring such joy and happiness to my own life. Simplistic and colorful. Those are two of my favorite things!

I’ve also been busy creating some new holiday pieces to share with you. A bunch of new handmade ornaments. As I’m sure you’ve read, my family recently moved into a new home and this coming Christmas will be our first in this house. There’s a lot more room here, so I’m thinking of putting up several more holiday themed trees throughout the house. I’m sure this will be an ongoing venture for the rest of my life because I’ve only just begun this whole thought process! But, I figure, let’s get a head start on creating some new ornaments that I’d personally hang on my Christmas trees!

Living in New England, there are barns about every 15 feet! And I love them! Especially the ones I see in our new town. So I’ve painted 3 small canvases and turned them into ornaments. Perfect for a farm themed tree!

I’m also a total snowman freak and leave those little guys up til Spring arrives! I love happy little snowmen and colorful, vibrant scarves and hats. So I’ve painted a bunch of those too! They’re also available in the Ornaments section of my online shop.

Aren’t they ridiculous? I just used flat little canvases that are 4” x 4”, did a few layers of paper, paint and doodles and they came out so sweet!

Of course, all these and more to come will be available in my online art shop as well as in person at the Bolton & Harvard Open Studios in September. If you are in the area, stop on my and check out my art, say hello and have some laughs while you’re here! I can’t wait for it!

Front Garden Tour! These Flowers are Epic!

Never in my life have I had such a gorgeous yard with blooming flowers that are so gorgeous they nearly make me cry every time I see them!

The lady who used to own this house had an incredible green thumb! There are just beautiful flowers, trees and bushes all over this yard. I notice new things each day like a little treasure hunt gift! So this morning I wanted to share with you some of the beauty that surrounds my house.

Since it’s raining here today, I clipped the peonies and one of the irises because the weight of the rain on the peonies and irises was forcing them to the ground. Now they sit in my favorite vase in the kitchen, brightening up my windowsill and putting a smile on my face!
