For He’s A Jolly Good Fellow

For He’s A Jolly Good Fellow, oil on canvas. 10″x12″.  Sold.

He looks a little surprised- you think?   I think it’s definitely a surprise party and he’s well chuffed.   I hope everyone is making the most out of summer.  Of late, I’ve been working on the book like a mad woman and growing things in the garden like red roses and pink peonies.   I’m slowly overcoming my fear of creepy crawlies- baby steps.   Tomorrow is the ‘super moon’ and I’m looking forward to cracking open a bottle of ‘Noble One’ with John and enjoying the sight before we run inside and watch the last episode of Mad Men- weep.   Aside from that I’ve been enjoying restaurant patios, gorging on fresh strawberries while watching films from the 70′s and early 80′s like ‘Klute’ and ‘Shoot The Moon‘, and trying to get my super white legs some sun as I don’t want to glow brighter than the super moon tomorrow night.

The Chirping Cricket

The Chirping Cricket, oil on canvas panel, 8″x10″.  Sold.

One of my favourite things about summer are the sounds of crickets and cicadas.  I think our dog and cat enjoy the sounds of crickets too as they seem to disappear into the kitchen in the evening and lie down near the open window.  They don’t seem to do this at any other time of year so I’m chalking it up to nature.  All we need is a pond and some frogs and that should complete the orchestra.
