A rainy day at Honeymoon Island, Fl. This is my first beach scene using water-soluble oils. I love their blending capabilities and I probably won't use acrylic paint any longer.

This is a wall in our den with 3 of my beach paintings. I change the paintings around alot...just ask the hubby...but right now I am dreaming of our next vacation to the beach. I can hear the waves lapping.................Enjoy!!

Welcome to C's Garden..............here are some shots from one of my client's courtyard, where I come to work or as I call it "play". Not a bad place to "dig in the dirt". Azaleas, rhodos and honeysuckle are blooming... The Japanese Maple is an intense red right now! I have just planted out the planters by the pool with Majesty Palms, lantana and geraniums. Soon there will be many more things blooming and bedding plants to go in...a labor of love for me.

Columbine and Dames Rocket are blooming in the backyard woodland garden. It's 90 degrees here today!
This fern "planted" itself here! I could not have planned it better myself. Nature is amazing!!
After 2 years of drought, I'm tired of schlepping the hose to the old veggie garden...I am trying tomatos and basil in pots this year. We'll see how they grow. I might not have enough sun here? I bought the pots for $7 a piece and spray painted them charcoal. The cement pineapple came from a garage sale. I scored two of them for $20!! What a find.
