Deep Purple Stargazer is a new little blossom in the studio. I found a bunch of lovely deep purple blossoms at the store, and am rushing to capture them before they fade. I want to paint red and white poinsettias, red rose hips, red roses, anything that will help me capture the holiday spirit. I can't wait for Thanksgiving and Christmas, my favorite time of year. These stargazers are the closest I've gotten to holiday paintings so far, with a list in my imagination of more holiday hues waiting to hop onto canvases between now and the end of the year.

Even Howard Pee Pugpants has been getting into the mood, and laid claim to a new red throw in the living room today. He has decided this uber-soft blankey is perfect for her favorite football afternoon passtime, perch napping. Please don't try this at home - Howard is a professional perch napper, and has been practicing for years; he makes it look easy!

Your lily painting is so beautiful! I was through Flower Mound TX recently attending my daughter's wedding at Denton. I realized as I passed through that that is where your studio is! Maybe next time I can plan ahead and meet you and see some of your atr work. I totally love your sunflowers!!

It comes as no surprise to me, Nancy, but your home is gorgeous! I so love my HowieP. He's so handsome (insert swoon).

The stargazer lily is just stunning!
