Summertime and the living is easy...or so the song goes. Summertime at Dragonfly farm keeps us hopping! Between gardening, grandkids, work and daily life, our lives are full and blessed beyond measure.
I have been wanting for the girls and I to make a fairy house ever since we had to cut our old walnut tree down. The day finally arrived! We took a big plant saucer and put beach sand from an earlier trip to Port A and covered it with pea gravel. I had a couple of bird houses in the studio so we converted those into fairy homes. I have seven grand daughters so we are taking turns making things for the little fairies. I thought you might enjoy seeing our fun and creativity at work!
Twice as nice when fun is shared!
The beginning of our fairy village...hopefully more girls and fun to come!
No Fairy home would be complete without an American flag and a Sunflower umbrella.
Or a Home Sweet Home sign and flowers.
Little Artist at work...she took her house home for the fairies that lived there.
I hope Pearl, the Tooth Fairy enjoys her new home!
"The Fairy's Gift" painting is now available at the Legacy Gallery, 1500 14th Street, Lubbock, Texas.
Everything is brighter and more colorful in Texas according to our little 5 year old friend from Denmark. Rena Rose is a lover of animals and wanted to see specific ones when she visited us in June. We did see quite a few but Bootman could not catch Mr Raccoon that hangs around our farm. In honor of her visit I painted a very colorful, West Texas version of Mr. raccoon...I hope she likes it!
Fireworks and Freedom always come to my mind when I think about the 4th of July. Along with swimming, sunburns, watermelon, homemade ice cream, family, friends and cookouts. I guess I am about as traditional as it gets when it comes to holidays. Wishing you a happy 4th!
