If you know me in real life, I have probably told you about how I hit the "in-law jackpot." Since the day I met them, my in-laws have treated me like one of their own. They have never been anything but generous, kind, accepting, and wonderful. While out with friends, I am often reminded that this is not always the case when it comes to in-laws, so I never take them for granted. I hope that someday, I will be as good of a mother in law to my children's spouses as she has been to me. Not too long ago, she brought me a bouquet of roses from her garden, and I couldn't resist painting it. I'm calling this painting "Jackpot Roses" in her honor.

Many years ago, I took an epic journey to Italy. In every city I visited, beautiful red and magenta geraniums dripped from window boxes everywhere I looked. Whenever I see geraniums now, I am transported back to Italy and those beautiful window boxes.

It was a rainy Saturday, and I got an email inviting me to come paint with a friend in her studio. Since it was too rainy to work in my garden, I packed up and headed over. I finished what I had brought to paint, and was forlornly packing up, when my friend offered me a fresh canvas, and invited me to paint the geraniums she was working with. And then, even though the rain was still pounding outside, sunshine returned.

I often gallery sit at the Artist's in Middleburg gallery. This painting was started on a sunny afternoon with my easel set up in the window.

Do you have a friend (and I hope you do) that can make even something as boring as a DMV visit fun? Let's just call my fun friend Kelly to protect the (not so) innocent. This flower bouquet looks like the kind of party Kelly would have, so I've called it "Kelly's Party."

This was painted from a simple, grocery store bouquet with the name "Country bouquet." As soon as I saw that title, I was immediately brought back to summer weekends going up to the little cabin my grandparent's had. Those peaceful country weekends spent lying in the grass looking for shapes in the clouds are some of my favorite childhood memories.

When I was younger, I always wanted a sister, but all I had was a brother. I have many sisters now - some are sisters in law, others are friends that are so close, they feel like family. I've called this painting "Sister Dance" because it is dedicated to all of the sisters in my life, and the way they always show up just when I need them.
