So last week I sent off this pair of paintings to their new home in Oregon. They have the loveliest owners, a pair of musicians who met through their mutual love of music. It was so much fun to paint this pair and have free reign to make them over in an old-timey style :) She plays the autoharp and he plays the cello, among other instruments. They are such a sweet and talented pair!

In other news, its hot and and just getting hotter. There hasn't been a summer like this since 1911. 1911! We've skipped the entire dust bowl, people ;) I'm doing my best to not whine so much about it, but obviously I'm failing miserably. Everything is brown and dead. I am holding onto thoughts of autumn though. It will be here soon! And then there will be Christmas, and Christmas is always so nice. We've been watching a lot of Christmas movies lately too, it helps to cool off :) If you've never tried it, you should ;)

I'm working on more autumn themed art and will be showing it to you soon! Take care and stay cool,


  1. I LOVE these paintings! I adore their old style charm. Just perfect. So sorry you are still experiencing such hot temps - it is getting warmer here...thank goodness for the AC! :)

  2. Thank you Theresa! Im glad you have AC, I know we'd be miserable without it! My greatgrandpa was born in 1911, and now I'm wondering how his poor mother survived, being pregnant during the hottest year on record and NO AC whatsoever! No wonder he was an only child ;)

  3. they look great! i love these!
