Painting has slowed down a bit, allowing me to sit on the porch an extra minute (or two) every day, enjoying the birdsong and my gardens.
I'm thoughtfully painting more slowly, trying to get the compositions right, in order to do these beauties justice. I always try to sneak in one of my grandmother Helen's blue Mason jars from long ago, in homage to her, and women like her everywhere, who put in so many hours canning good foods for their families.
So, here's to women everywhere who work hard: on the job, in the home, in their gardens and with their families.
Italy and living "la vita dolce."
