July into August

July has flown by filled with unseasonable heat and some special visitors.

Sunday brought the AS IS (Artist Salon In Session) to my house in Winona.  What a wonderful day with deepening on topics that effect our lives and art, doing an art project together and lots of great food and visiting.  I was the "inspiring artist show and tell" but got more from the wonderful support of all of the others than I could ever inspire them.  Photographers, writers, painters, actually all kinds of artists from Il, WI and MN.  The only websites I have here to post of some of the artists are Cathy Missaghi and Nancy Wong  It was a more than lovely day together.  Thank you all!


I have fallen behind in my projects with this insane (in many ways) last month. but I've started a series of pastel veges and fruits.  Yes! it's that time of year where the tomatoes are beautiful next to the tall glossy basel and the cucumbers are plentiful. Still getting enough snow peas to make it worth going out early to munch on them while scanning the garden for pests and newly arrived vegetables to harvest, seemingly overnight.


  1. Hmmm that peach looks so delicious! It was a great weekend, good company and great art!

  2. Hi Julie. Tell me more about this ASIS project?
