5 x 7" original oil

Let's all pretend we have our feet in the still-warm sand as the sun has just set as we take a deep breath of fresh, salty air. 

I have a little event in Salt Lake City tonight with my art (gallery stroll and live painting at Illume Gallery) and thanks to my good friend Heidikins, I've been made aware that the cherry blossoms on Capitol Hill are ready for their close-up. Looks like a field trip to SLC today with  my camera! 

Happy Weekend.

Sun, color, sugar and candy petals. Spring is coming. 

When I was little, my family listened to music all the time and I have vivid memories of one album in particular that played oldies. The song "Lollipop" by the Chordettes is one of those songs written in the soundtrack of my childhood mind. If you haven't heard it yet, here's a link to see the Chordettes singing it on Youtube - I dare you not to grin as you listen.
