There are some days you wake up and your feet hit the ground running… 
Today was one of those days.  
I was woken up to my daughter calling 
and asking if I could watch her puppy for the day…
 Of course I said yes… After all, I would be in the studio for the day painting.
 I figured Ben ( my Border Collie) would keep Leo ( My daughters Golden puppy) 
entertained while I was painting.
I also planned on training Leo  throughout the day in between brush strokes! 

 There was little painting done,
 However, I DID manage to finish one painting that was nearly done. 
I have had so many people comment on how much they enjoy seeing the transitioning of my paintings, so I am enclosing three images of it’s progression.  ( sorry there's not more than three)
The painting is called “Love Birds”. 
It is mixed media, and it is 24x24.

I plan on exhibiting ( and hopefully selling!) this in the Narragansett Art Festival.   
 ( Only 14 days left to paint! YIKES!!!!)

Last week I was blessed enough to go on vacation with my honey. 
We both love scuba diving, and I always seem to get ideas for paintings from the coral and plant life underwater. 
This dive, I saw some amazing coral that reminded me so much of Gustuv Klimt’s paintings. … 
Have you ever noticed that when you are studying something, 
that something just shows up EVERYWHERE! 
Well, see for yourself. 
Do you think it looks like it belongs in a Klimt painting?

Isn't it GORGEOUS!

Now, here’s my interpretation of it:

I’m not sure where or how this will show up in my paintings… 
all I know is that this image is locked in my brain! 
Such beauty is all around us! 
All we need to do is stop long enough to appreciate it 
and then give it our own interpretation!

Well, that’s all for now! Until next time… Happy Creating!
Blessings and Hugs,
