a sun drenched book

this is one of my favorite books – the new french country

it’s filled with lucious pictures of homes, gardens, architectural elements, and the beautiful mediterranean sunshine.

i made this painting recently

i always LOVE fireflies, and the fireflies song. then one day on my favorite show, this song took on a new meaning. i get misty watching this every single time — a true inspiration ….

here’s the link of the 1 minute video on youtube, it’s about a boy and his dream of becoming a dancer.

‘Cause I’d get a thousand hugs
From ten thousand lightning bugs
As they tried to teach me how to dance

A foxtrot above my head
A sock hop beneath my bed
A disco ball is just hanging by a thread”

a dove tree


the first time i saw a dove tree blooming was at the san francisco botanical garden/strybing arboretum.

it was like a tree of white doves flying in the gentle wind. i was in awe.

this painting was completed a few weeks ago. one day i will plant a dove tree by our house =)
