For days now, I've been feverishly preparing for the Parade of Homes Tour in Raleigh, North Carolina. Eighteen paintings. Many large mantel pieces. Here I am putting the varnish finish on several smaller ones. Wiring. Framing. Details. Details.

Ok. Here I am...back to blogging after taking about a year off...don't know what happened. I suppose I had my hands wrapped around brushes instead of typing on my MAC. This time I hope to do a better job. I might even try to post a video or two. With that said.....here goes my first post.
There are so many things to paint. I can hardly stand it...but in the spring and fall the wildflowers along the highways are magnificent! ( courtesy of the NCDOT Wildflower program) Those images and colors get stuck in my head and just have to come out.
