Rollerskates

More experimenting in Procreate. I am totally having fun with this app. My daughter just got herself a pair of rollerskates. I have the song “Brand New Key” stuck in my head. I LOVED that song back in the day. I hummed and sang that song when I put on my strap-on skates. I later advanced to real quads in a roller-rink. Lots of fun memories!

Ice pops

As always, doing art is my restorative practice. I have been painting ice pops – they are cheerful, and colorful. A moment of escape. Things are so heavy right now.

This one is my Amador Pop – my daughter’s high school colors – purple and gold, happen to be my favorite color combo. If you would like me to paint your school colors or favorite flavors, drop me a message. I’d be happy to do a custom artwork piece! This one is 5×7 inches. They make great gifts.

First Cherries of the season

I bought our first batch of cherries this past weekend at the Pleasanton Farmer’s market. They did not disappoint – a perfect balance of sweetness. They are my favorite summer treat. The market was wonderful – ran into a friend – kept our distance. It was just so nice to be together, even briefly.

This is a small painting – acrylic on a panel 6×6.

Which are your favories? Bing or Rainier?
