Imagine yourself on vacation
Somewhere in Europe I would guess
You've ridden your bike to the market
To get a bottle of wine perhaps
And a loaf of fresh baked bread

Summer Shade

I painted this from a picture I had taken a few weeks ago on the patio boat when my brother and his wife (from Thailand) came to visit along with my sister and her family (from Paradise). We were lazing on the boat and I saw this scene and I thought it was a good subject to paint. I didn't do a great job capturing the coolness of the shade, but I'm happy with the painting anyway.

Desert Glory

This one was fun to paint - I love the striking colors

Dear, Sweet Charlotte

I went to visit Charlotte today
Who always greeted me
With a smile and a gladness
That filled me with joy

Today I found dear, sweet Charlotte
Sitting alone in a wheel chair
Barely able to turn her head
To see that I had arrived

Her eyes smiled with familiar warmth
Beaming happily when she saw me
But then she soon became frustrated
Unable to remember who I was

It breaks my heart to see her like this
Lost and trapped inside her head
But dear, sweet Charlotte is my friend
I can't give up until she's gone
