Ok, the song 'Born to be Wild' was in my head all afternoon as I painted this scene. 
Mr. Piggy Bank is gazing out my front window, - I think he's totally looking for adventure and whatever comes his way. ;)

This is another little scene from our recent anniversary jaunt.
After driving aimlessly (blissfully!) through the farmland around La Conner, WA, we bopped over to Anacortes and got out to stretch our legs by one of the many docks. 
Boats, and boats and then more boats - a beautiful spot to wander.

It's July! Time to paint a flag! ;)

I nearly gave up on this one, - I'm wearing some trial contact lenses that my eyes have not adjusted to, and, it's like 114° in my painting corner. Ok, probably only 80-something, but it is HOT. 
We're having an unusually warm summer here in the pnw, and even though I whine with the best of them, I actually kinda love it. 
(Except for the extreme fire danger and drought and all that, of course.) 
Summer is supposed to be hot! :)

So, here's my flag painting - I had a grand ol' time, even with all the extra challenges. ;)

(This flag adorns the retired Coast Guard lightship 'Columbia', now residing at the Columbia River Maritime Museum in Astoria, Oregon.)

I hope you all have a happy and safe Independence Day!
