Wow! Almost Summer!

Three of my paintings will be in the Marco Fuoco Gallery's "Summer Colors" show from June 13th to July 8th! I still have a few tweeks to do on each one but they are getting there. I kind of goofed off all weekend so I have to get them finished tonight. These are far enough along to give you a peek of them. I will post the final pictures of them on Flickr & they will show up in my slideshow.

" The Gemini"

"Summer Breezes"
"Sails, Blue Skies & Sunburns"

This weekend I watched the movie "New In Town" twice! It's so funny, better than I expected and the guys liked it too. Even the deleted scenes are funny. I also started some new seeds and got my hands really dirty. My sister sent me a trumpet vine and 2 jasmine plants. I love those! What a nice surprise! I painted a trumpet vine on the side of the house around my patio. Now I will have a real one. Jasmine is one of my favorite smells. She sent a Carolina jasmine and a Confederate jasmine. I don't know if they both smell the same, they don't look the same, I'll have to ask her. I hope they all do well and I don't love them to death like my husband does to his patchouli plants! My family sends him patchouli plants when they find them. He loves them to death. Everyday (and I'm not really exaggerating) I will find it in a different spot because he thinks it will be happier there! He's too funny to watch with them and we joke about it. *Light bulb* I think I'll start searching for one for him for Father's Day!

Love, Love the art work! Such a different Jane!
I have trumpet vines all around my house. They grow like weeds here in N FL. I planted jasmine, confederate 2 years ago up my front walk on a picket fence and it grew like weeds. Beautiful smell and I have it growing up a post on my carport! Feed it a little and it will take off, Miracle Grow will do the trick!
My trumpet flowers start off yellow and turn a beautiful salmon pink!
Blessings,
Mimi

Hello friend! It was so nice to find your message on my blog from May 19. I've been taking time off from blogging while I'm working on a new Etsy shop.

Patchouli plant? Does it have a fragrance around it, like the oil?

As always, I LOVE your latest art work. The Summer colors are so vibrant.

As Usual, I love them all. I think I am torn between the live oak on the corner of willow and 3rd ( that's what I thought of) and gemini.
They are gorgeous. I really love the blue bird in your slideshow too.
