Flower Power done!

Flower Power
24" x 24" oil on board

Got this puppy finished. Lots of interuptions today and didn't get started until close to noon. But once I got settled, put some music on, it finally came together. The flower was tough, but I think it works now.

So, I started the companion piece for "Flower Power" below. It's also a 24" x 24" oil on board. Got some values put in before my dog, Annie, got hungry. So did her owner, actually.

Had to deliver two paintings to a customer today also. It's been a great summer for painting sales. Only problem is that in 3 weeks I'm exhibiting at the 59th Grand Detour Arts Festival and my inventory is suddenly a tad low. Oh well, these are the kind of problems we all wish for!

My daughter, Morgan, is moving back to Chicago this week (finally got a new apartment...no more roomates!) and we're driving back and forth getting her settled. She's starting her senior year at Univ. of Illinois Chicago. Sure liked having her around this past month. She's an excellent bartender and waitress and she really helped out at our business. Gonna miss her. Nice to have someone to talk to in the evening.
