'July Sky'  © Robin Edmundson, watercolor on paper,  18 x 24 inches. 
Framed to 24 x 30 inches.  $750

Hello my lovely friends!  
There is something about a July sky.   White hot.  Blazing.  Melting. 

The lazy, hazy days of summer are in full swing.  The rains stopped, the heat arrived, the cicadas emerged and the garden is bursting with loveliness and deliciousness.   We put up some tall fencing around the vegetable garden and that has kept the doe at bay.  For now.   I think that after she consumed every hosta and flower bud on our place, she moved on.  Either that, it got so hot that she moved deeper into the woods and has been too lazy to come out.   

I am logging more brush miles and trying to be more heart-led in my approach to my work.   I let myself play and just see what happens.   If I'm not impressed with the final result, I turn the paper over and play some more.   There is joy in watching the colors run and mingle and merge.  

I promised you last month that I would do some more florals when the echinacea and campanulas bloomed along the road and they have never been more gorgeous than this year.   There are blue starry spikes everywhere this year, and the black eye-susans are still going strong.

Framed  22 x 18 inches, $375

The zinnias are just getting going in the garden and I wouldn't be at all surprised if they showed up here next month.  To see them as they come off the easel, follow me on Instagram HERE.

May your days be productive and your evenings restful.   Summer blessings!
