Pinwheel Summer and Happy New Year

A new painting freshly dried:

Pinwheel Summer

Original available in my Etsy Shop

I've been feeling cold this winter, so had to paint something warm. The grass is always greener on the other side, eh? When it is summer and hot, I wish it were cold. Ah well. Also I must say, that my scanner didn't do this little girl justice -- much more subtlety going on in person.
Happy New Year, everybody! The end of 2009 momentous things have been happening in my life; hence my scarcity here. I feel good things coming in 2010 and a renewed sense of getting my art life in order. Looking forward to seeing where God takes me. Yeehaw!

HAPPY BELATED NEW YEAR from Ireland! New Year's day we woke to snow & -3 C nights. Brr...I refuse to come out of my sleeping bag. Anyway, I love your summer girl. 2009 we didn't get a summer. Just non-stop rain & cloudy skies. Hopefully, 2010 will let me dust off my pinwheel & watch it swirl in the breeze. -Bobbi
