I couldn't be happier that summer is finally here! I love my regular job but I'm really looking forward to catching up on all of my special orders and having a little time to paint before midnight!

I love working with the windows open, music playing and nothing else to do. It awakens my creative side, sends me to a place where nothing else seems to matter-just words and paint. Lovely.

I was so excited by the thought that I found myself in a very deep construction site dumpster yesterday, throwing wood over the side, thinking about all of the new designs to come this summer. I had a little trouble getting out but luckily I did. So, tomorrow-the studio. Ahhh...

Run Like a Girl 8k

What an amazing day! I know this isn't really Sunnygirl Sign related however I just had to write about the Run Like a Girl 8k Women's Only Race that I ran with my almost 10 year old girl. Over 2,000 women and girls ran, jogged, and walked through the woods and fields, five miles to benefit Ovarian Cancer research. I'm not an athlete and wish I exercised more regularly so I was curious to see how I might survive this adventure. The energy was overwhelming and the positive spirits of everyone involved helped us make it to the finish in less time that we ever imagined! I encourage everyone to check out this super fun race, no matter your age or ability level-find out that you really can do anything you make up your mind to do. I can't wait for next year! I take my tired legs and achy knees back to the studio-it was very worth it!

Sunnygirl Sign-done and ready to mail!


Thanks so much for visiting my blog! Please let me know if you have any questions. I hope to paint for you sometime really soon!
