New Summer Folk Art Painting

I started a new painting and it feels great.  I can tell I'm a little rusty when it comes to ideas, but it's been fun.  My Christmas and autumn paintings are my best sellers, but I need some sunshine in my life right now and I'm sure others feel the same way.  This is a remake of a scene I had painted on a  fireplace screen I did many years ago.  It's a horse farm and will have children playing in a pond so I'm looking forward to getting to the fun part.

Rick and I have spent a couple days out in the sun with Daisy cleaning up the yard.  Is the sun shining where you are?  I hope there will be flowers to put in pots this year.   I love gardening and I need flowers!  I have little violas popping their heads up and I may move some of those around.

We are homebodies normally and I'm fine with staying home.  I just wish I'd been prepared with mulch and annuals.   Missing my kids too!  I pray each of you are doing well.  Get creative;  it really helps.  How are you staying busy?


  1. Hi, Catherine. That's great news! I love your work, having 2 myself. Look forward to seeing the finished painting. Stay safe.

  2. Creative is what you are! I am glad that you have been able to be out in the sunshine. It is such a chore to clean up the yard in spring, yet invigorating and good to have a helper. It has been rainy and windy (howling) here this week so gloom is all about. We need the sun as moods are already dampened. 🌷☀️🌷
