I have a number of wooden toys and blocks in my studio for me to paint and children to play with when they visit. Panting colored blocks is a great color exercise. I'm not sure how many more paintings I can do this week. My studio will be open for the next two weekends and I must finish getting it ready.

As I'm framing my paintings for this year's art shows and Studio Tour, I look at them to see what I can change to make them a better painting. This painting is one where I've changed the background color. I think it looks much better.

I painted these flowers from Trader Joe's. They make me happy when I look at them. So that's why they have that name.
