Blossom Benediction Geraniums is drying on the easel as a summer thunderstorm rolls into North Texas. The wind is whipping the trees around in the back yard and the sky is dark as night to the east. All of this drama is giving us a break from the heat wave. I do love a good window rattling thunderstorm!

Today I was supposed to troop out to the Dallas Aboretum for plein air painting, but my dear friend Judy Mackey and I opted to stay indoors. If we had braved the heat, the afternoon would have ended for me in a nap, instead of this new painting! Now I know why the folks in Spain have siesta....

favorite shops for uber cute puggy stuff!

Methinks my Howie wants to know why Mommy keeps bringing in new Pugs! Look at that expression on his handsome face!!! LOLOL

Love the geraniums, Nancy. The pop of blue in the vase is a nice complement to the red and white flowers!

I love your work-I love the incorporation of the blue and white into many of your paintings. I have a large Blue Willow china collection.
And of course I love Melissa's shop, too! Anything pug is okay by me!:)
