Relishing Summer

So much to be grateful for this week... skies...

...warmer temperatures...

...LONG days...

...and Summer's Screaming Green palette.

Best of all, our Daughter is coming for a week's visit tomorrow and our Son is coming up to work for the summer on Sunday.
I will be taking a little break from studio work this week.  Here are some projects in mid-stream, waiting for my return:

detail of  one of a series of procion dye paintings, waiting to be stitched

monoprint, acrylic paint and prismacolor pencil on cotton, 6"x8", waiting to be stitched

containers of low-water emersion over-dyes, all cottons, which I will rinse out tomorrow while I wait for Daughter's plane to land in the morning

Hope your week is going well.  Got gratitude?


  1. Great landscape photos -- I'd love to get up to Alaska sometime.
    I'm grateful EVERY DAY for an unfettered life, no have-tos or shoulds, and everything I need.
    Have a great week, too, you. Enjoy your kids! xo

  2. Screaming green for sure. I am going to paint today. . . unfortunately most of it will be with deck paint, but I am GRATEFUL for the SUN!!

    So delicious to have children at home. I always wish all of ours were closer. Enjoy yours!

  3. Wonderful photos Sus -- they'd be great painting subjects. and the ongoing projects look like they, too, will be winners.

  4. i can find some of that luscious green in your work and the light,
    such a happy post dear Sus, life can be so sweet, enjoy it all, xx

  5. Glad summer 's there, Sus !
    Wow have a great time, with the whóle family together !!!
    Sure the studio can wait a bit ;-)
    Oooh, that tiny (because I see a huge pin !) monoprint is a little gem !!!
    (looks like a happy house to me ;-) !)

  6. Fine photos. beautiful dyed fabrics, and good news about your children, enjoy them, I also I have two daughters far away, and when they come to visit us is a party (then, I cry farewell, but everything is too much to ask, right?) :))

  7. I too am loving the long daylight hours, the blue of the sky, the warm temperatures and the green of the leaves! Thanks for sharing the beauty in your world - the lovely scenery, your amazing creations and that you get to spend some time with your children. I too am feeling blessed to have my children (plus another mothers daughter) with us for the summer.

  8. wonderful pictures, great nature! and your work is beautiful.
    I wish you a happy time with your children! :-) mano

  9. Hi, Sus. Your scenery photos are always so gorgeous and remind me of the differences in light that we experience. Of course, I paid particular attention to your pieces that are awaiting stitching--lovely. And I rather fancied "Nadia's View" in the previous post with the warm colors.
    best, nadia
