Fake It Till You Make It.

A Girl Can Pretend!!!

So far this winter, we have had several very significant snowfalls!

I mean significant!

We had two or three right on the heels of each other that hung around on the ground for about three weeks that totaled well over a foot.

Then we had a brief warmup
and about 3 inches of rain in less than 24 hours.

I know,
at this point we are all going crazy,
then the rain switched over to snow

and on March 3 we had just under a foot of snow overnight.

I need me some serious summer!!!

One thing about being an artist is,
you can pretty much pretend and paint any season you want.

So I want summer.

So for right now,
I'm "Pretending".

(On my monitor, this painting is more pinky rose than shows on here.  It's brighter in person)


  1. I love the original viewpoint and the way this one just pulls you into the scene! Fantastic!

  2. Thanks so much Meredith. I've tweaked it several times but now I've done it. I've signed it so we all know what that means. It's done.

  3. You all really did get pounded this winter!! We had our share up here, but gratefully, we seemed to be in a wrinkle that was spared more often than not, while counties north and south of us got hammered with snow. Hopefully we're finally looking at the end of this weary winter! Your beautiful hollyhocks are encouraging!

    1. Thanks Terri. I don't know where your post has been hanging out but it just showed up in my feed today. Too weird. Thank you so much for commenting. Yes, we have been hammered, and right this minute we are being drowned with 1-3" of rain.

  4. This is one of my favorites! VERY nice painting and composition. Keep it up!
