I love sunflowers & today I imagined some right in front of me.  This little painting captures their cheer & joy.  It won’t be long before we are enjoying our hand picked bouquets of summer flowers on our dining room tables.  Ahhhhh!

Bug Light Sailing

Bug Light Sailing • 5×5 • oil on canvas • SOLD

I went for a bike ride over to Bug Light Park the other day & it made me so happy to see the little sail boats bobbing about behind the lighthouse.  Warmer weather is on the way … really!  And so is the Trek Across Maine, which I have signed up for.  🙂  The trek is a 180 mile bike ride over 3 days, from the mountains to the sea & I have started my training for it.   It’s going to be a real challenge for me, but fun too!  If you would like to learn more and support the American Lung Association & my trek journey, please click here: http://action.lung.org/goto/poweredbyveggies

Gina was her name & she was a curious & adorable little llama.  We got to feed her apples & bananas & she made funny faces at us & let us take lots of pictures … we all fell for her.  Can you blame us?

Little Llama Love • 6×6 • oil on canvas • $95

One of the many highlights of our Peru trip was visiting with the llamas.  They are just soooooo adorable!  This little cutie was on the grounds of Saqsaywayan, some spectacular Incan ruins above Cusco, and I couldn’t resist following him around.  Too bad I couldn’t squeeze him in my suitcase.

The cliffside promenade of Lima, Peru is absolutely spectacular! My dad is living a couple of blocks from el Malecón in Miraflores & we got to enjoy several gorgeous walks along it.  Between the views, the flowers, the bright sunshine & the ocean breeze we were  in heaven.  Pure bliss!

I had the most amazing vacation to Peru!  Every day was a feast for the eyes–so much beauty & color at every turn.  I imagine you will see many paintings of the inspiring scenery I witnessed, but for now enjoy this little painting of a look down a staircase in Cusco.  I love that city!
