summer down


Happy July.

is truly the cat's meow.
Proof that Blondes do have more fun.
Visual overload for me as an artist to capture it all on paper would take a lifetime or a book!
Add -"Summer is a verb" frame by MRR Design. Marnie and I met before her blog. She came to me in pursuit of art for her snappy frames.
We connected on so many levels, Moms, fabric and ribbon junkies, monogram mavens, art lovers, tart lovers, avid readers, frugalistas, knitters and our love for sisters and Summertime, bonded our friendship.
The quintessential white bikini, basket on the pink bike, the coveted Hermes towel and not to mention kitty out for a spin. I really wonder if and when that beach babe has time to "summer down" between all the work-outs between the shopping escapades, the ups deliveries and the five-o-clock pit-stops.
Summer never looked so good on the first day of July.

Summer is my favorite season and these images conjure up all the reasons why! That first image with the hedgerow looks like it's from a home in East Hampton, is it?

You are so right Patricia, summer never looked so good. Your illustration is absolutely perfect. I want to be that dear on the bicycle in that white bikini!

A special 4th of July weekend to you and yours x

Summer is indeed a verb, a feeling, a breeze, a tall glass of lemonade, your best bikini + coverup (at least in my case) and fireflies! Which I noticed were out last night. Beautiful illustrations!
