I found the green flowered pot featured in Sunday Dreaming Hydrangeas on a shopping trip with girlfriends one day at lunchtime. I suppose some girls remember vividly making eye contact with exceptionally cute guys when they are out and about, for me, my heart goes pitty pat when I see that most paintable and delectable flower pot! After I ran to the register with my treasure, and it was wrapped carefully for the trip home, I knew the pot and I would have many happy moments together in the studio. Sunday Dreaming was the first time it was painted, all aglow and dewey fresh soon after we had met.

A few of you have asked about my big news - on Monday evening, I attended the reception for the Trinity Arts Guild annual open show, and learned that I had won first place for the still life division for my oil painting, Wish Carnations. I was excited and so honored to receive the blue ribbon. The juror who chose the winning selections described my painting as "old school oil." I came very close to not entering Wish, thinking my two other entries were much stronger. I'm really glad I did!
