Sparks of Light

Wander a whole summer if you can. Thousands of God's blessings will search you and soak you as if you were a sponge, and the big days will go by uncounted.   (John Muir)

Sun Hat, 16 x 8

I saw her at the pool on Sunday and had to do this quick study
(after a surreptitious photo)!

Summer is here...the light is incredible...AND, as we leave tomorrow for an Italian painting experience with many good friends,  
I am so appreciative of it all, and the surprises to come.  
A re-boot is in order, and here it is just in time! 

This art life just gets better and better....
