Yesterday was perfect…80-ish degrees with scattered sun, everything was blooming, green, and chirping, at the Celebration, Florida, Farmer’s Market.   Anthony and I sold some paintings, ( big yay ) then strolled around buying dried fruit and fresh vegetables, admiring the hand painted silks, and eating more than our share of pistachios and pastries, etc…..the day was perfect, and I am very fortunate Anthony cheerfully drags me, grumbling, away from my paints to do these things !!  Today I am beginning a commission painting for a customer in California.  It is going to be an impressionist oil landscape of a Sonoma-esque vineyard, so I’ll be in the studio, taking a mental day trip, or two, to Sonoma, California  :}   Below are some other vineyard paintings I have done, some plein air, some in the studio.   You can see more of my work at
