Signs of Summer


mixed media on baltic birch 18 x 28 inches
here's my latest finished piece. So, I am squeezing it into an IF topic - "signs".
Note the shopping cart. It's a sign of how we get lost in the "shopping for things" and forget to view the free beautiful world - around us. Trite? perhaps, but lately I feel bombarded with "things to buy" and long to just putter in the garden.
Sign O' the Times at IF.
update - it's in the shop if you are interested... for the next three months i am adding a lot of my own work to the shop - sort of a "tag sale" if you will, work seems to pile up and it's that time of year....

Not trite at all... we do seem to have consumer frenzy, but there is so much beauty and peace to be had in nature. I am so filled with joy when I hear those birds in the morning...and see how lush the trees have become... This piece is gorgeous, Susan. The colors are delicious, rich and light at the same time. Don't you love painting on birch? I have become addicted!

I love this piece! The colors are so lovely and bright!

I wanted to let you know that Ballet New England's end of the year show is June 3 at the Stratham Coop Middle School. I'm going to be premiering a new piece of choreography within the show and I thought that you and Grace might enjoy it if you're free!

Cheers, Sarah

This piece is beautiful, Susan. I especially like how colourful it is. And I can see your meaning behind it, too. I'm feeling the same way about shopping and just relaxing to take in the beautiful natural world, too.
