My birthday was last week and we took a trip to Lake Lure, NC to celebrate on Friday. It was so beautiful and only 45 minutes from where we live. We swam in the lake surrounded by mountains and then we rented a canoe and ate lunch on the water. It was so peaceful and beautiful and I felt so grateful to have the life that I have. I've been a bit introspective since then. I'm trying to come up with some new paintings for a Seattle show in August but I'm having a hard time. I've just been enjoying the lazy summer and my birthday week.
Hope you're all having a wonderful weekend.

Pillows featuring my painting titled "mylo" are now at Urban Oufitters. I don't think they're being sold online yet but they are definitely in stores. Yay! The color is different from my original image but the pillow has a nice distressed look to it that I really like. They measure 18" x 18" and are solid green on the back. I love the tag with my name on it on the back! Unfortunately, we don't have a store here in Asheville so if you see them in stores let me know what you think.
Long view of Pisgah Brewing Company. It's even bigger than this.

Believe it or not the pictures above are of a bar! It's a local brewery called Pisgah Brewing Company and it's about 15 minutes from us. We've been meeting our friends there every Thursday evening for the past few weeks. It's kind of an indoor/outdoor bar with live music and a firepit. But just behind the bar is a huge lawn (a part of the bar) with a creek and a bridge. Sitting outside on a beautiful evening, drinking great beer with your kids running around. You can also bring your own food. Brilliant!

"only slightly less than happy" (sorry, I could not get a good scan of this image because of the wood grain)
I will have 2 new paintings (and 3 of my Mother's Day paintings) in the "Just Because" show at C.A.V.E. Gallery this weekend. The show runs from Friday, July 3rd - July 25th. The opening reception is this Friday from 7-11 pm. If you live the Los Angeles area please check it out. It looks like it's going to be an amazing show.
