Officially summer

It's officially summer -- my favorite! Being outside painting while my girls play in the yard is a pure delight.

Lately I've been productive, too. Today I was outside working for around an hour when the rain started. Drat. As my neighbor pointed out, now we don't have to water our gardens! Time to take care of other my blog!

Here are two recent works, both 12x9" and both in pastel. I am experimenting with new techniques. The verdict is still out on whether I like the results. Seems fussy. Finding the balance between fussy and loose is my goal. We'll see how I do this summer with that!

On a personal note, last week I lost my dear grandmother, who quietly passed in her sleep in her own bed at the wonderful age of 93. I discovered some delightful photos while looking for some for a photo board to be displayed at the wake.

Finally I'm getting the courage up to do some figurative work. Between some of the gems I found and my own two young girlies in day-to-day silliness, I have no dearth of material!

Professionally I'm thinking about ways to increase traffic to my facebook page, Kim Morin Weineck's Art. I think a giveaway is in order. More on this soon.

Thanks for reading!
