Purple Hearts is a new small work on the easel today, as I pack up paintings to ship to California, Illinois, Massachusetts, and Providence Village, Texas. I always start my day with the housekeeping chores, the packing and shipping, the turpenoid cleanup, the studio tidying. The best part gets saved for last (well, yes, the best part is when the pugs get fed, but that's a different story.)

The best part is when I get to retire to the studio for an evening of painting. Before that, today, we had some time to sit out in the garden and enjoy the beautiful sunny weather. Hannah, my foster girl, was the sunbather today. She's quite glamorous with her big bobbley eyes and tiny little nose. I'm sure in some past life (she is, after all, a woman of international mystery, having come from Germany), she was a silent movie queen, or perhaps a spy. For now, she is my just little snuggley potato.

Hannah soaks up the sun

The Purple Heart Roses are so beautiful! All those shades are so happy together.
Little Hannah is sooo adorable soaking up those sun rays...
Too cute!

Thank so much for telling me about Hannah, Nancy. I'd been wondering if she was still with you and also how she is feeling after her surgery. She's a dolly! The roses are just exquisite too!
