Summer Cottages

Today is a big day for us.  Our son, Eric, is buying his first home and closing on it this morning.  I can't wait to share photos of his new place.  It's the cutest little cottage and has the neatest butler's pantry.  We'll be over there today stripping wallpaper and lots of other fun things.  His home reminds me of something that I would put in one of my paintings like this one:

Paula realized, a little too late, that she had outgrown her bike from the previous summer and keeping her feet on the pedals was no longer possible. 

This is one of my favorite paintings because I, like Paula, would love to ride a bike down a hill with the wind blowing my hair straight back.  

Have a Paula kind of day!


  1. How exciting for Eric to have his first home. Your painting is wonderful and love the little girl on the bike. Very sweet!

  2. Congrats to Eric! You don't suppose your paintings have had any influence on him? = D

    Have fun with the wallpaper peeling!

  3. How exciting for you and Eric. I'm sure it will be fabulous. Wish I could ride a bike.
