Dear summer, take all your weddings and shove it

Wow, what a busy summer!  Weddings, bridal showers, bachelorette parties, birthday parties, and bonfires are just a few of the things I’ve had to handle.  Pretty much all of these things require gifts or food to pass.  So, in the absence of a favorite pal, money, I have been making the gifts.  That, too is consuming a lot of time.  I count myself lucky that I am crafty and creative enough to make the presents. I’ve still been painting off and on, just not as much as I’d like.  This picture is of an oil painting I did for a friend’s birthday.  She loves wine and has had wine tasting parties in the past.  It is a bit more old school traditional than I usually do, but I was happy for the results.  The painting is only an 8×10 on canvas board so each layer went rather quickly.  I don’t usually like canvas board, but it’s affordable and easy to fit in a standard picture frame.
