It has been a typical Baltimore July with heat and humidity. My trusty General Electric Fan has been moving the air in my studio every day. I honored its service with an oil painting last week.

The hydrangeas in our garden are bursting forth with hues of pink, purple, lavender and blue. We have eight bushes and no two are exactly the same color. There is one that stands out with the most brilliant blue blossoms imaginable. I snipped a few flower heads to bring to the studio over the weekend. I wanted to remember how much they comforted me in my melancholia entwined with sweet memories of Thierry Jeannier who left us too soon last month. Rest in Peace dear man. You were a genuine friend and beloved son to us and we miss you every day.

Bees are buzzing around the studio this week. Here are my new tiny paintings of our waxy, winged pollinators. A generous friend who has a studio down the hall recently gave me a few small frames that he could not use. I decided that these little bees would look very cozy nesting in two of the beautiful gold frames. The little oils will be dry by the weekend and ready to rest in their new "hive."

My first outdoor show of the season is in Arlington, Virginia next weekend. I will have many new oil paintings including this typewriter (featured here) that I found in the attic during the 2016 Baltimore blizzard. Since many of you have made the request, I'll bring additional paintings of vintage objects including the sewing machines and telephones. Hope everyone can stop by my booth. It would be fun to see all of you!

Maybe it's the arrival of spring. I'm not sure but I painted another rooster. This one was a rescued rooster who soon became a resident at Long's Park in Lancaster, PA.
