Spread some out to see how colors work together. I like them even the neutrals.

The container I use to house my abstracts is over-crowded. Damn. I need to find another so i can keep them together. I sat down this am and looked at all of them. Im hoping to find inspiration for a garden mosaic. Lots of inspiration there. It will be fun to adapt my own creation into a different medium.
Before I put them away I counted. Yikes. 151 loose ones. Prob a few more framed here and there. This project of a breakfast painting each day is so productive - obviously. its such a great way to start the day.
Last evening I sat down with the box of breakfast sketches I did over the past year and a half. OMG. thats a lot of art. I have them grouped as landscapes. Still lifes. Trees. Florals. People. Critters. Abstracts. Etc. There were only about 8 that I really dont like. Tossed the worst of the worst. Set aside a few that needed changes. This one I changed today.

We are having another heat wave. My thoughts are turned towards coastal byways where you need a sweater. I spotted this scene in an article in Watercolor Artist April 2011. Joyce Hicks does beautiful landscapes and has a very distinctive style. She and her husband travel around with an eye out for scenes to paint. You can see her work at www.artistsnetwork.com/article/joyce-hicks-watercolor-gallery.

Four art friends from long ago are coming to lunch tomorrow. It was fun shopping for colorful foods for them. . I called my fav nursey to ask them to pick fresh strawberries. Soooo fresh. I bought tomatoes at the nursery too. They had already picked them this am. I started a loaf of herb bread before I left and by the time I got home it was rising and ready to bake. Its going to be a pretty healthy lunch.

I cut open a bag of Trader Joes brussel sprouts and poured them into a steamer. When I checked on them, turning them over - I noticed this odd little sprout. Honestly I did not do anthing to change it. This is a pic. I could not resist taking the photo. Then I put Mr Sprout back in the steamer.
