PPF and Sweet Saturday - Summer Sunshine and A Tweet Friend!

Just finished...colorful sketch on my desk.
You can't help but be happy and sing a song of joy when the sun is shining bright and there's blue skies above...that's Summer in the O.C. and the inspiration behind my latest mini adventure
Summer Sunshine!
Copyright 2011  18"x24" Oil Pastel
Baby blues and a bright sun in the sky this little lady is enjoying the sweet "tweets" from her red birdie friend! (thx Sarah for the suggestion...definitely the perfect choice) And with more suggestions from FB and Twitter friends her Mod, "Peter Max" inspired dress is "popping" with summertime sunshine too! (thx Shari and Cindy)
The side by side comparison view...a few changes from the original sketch.
So there you have it complete, I'm through...ideas swirling in my head for the next mini, it's true!
Shared (a day late...eeek!) over at

WOW! Thanks so much for all of the awesome comments...they make my day! I so appreciate that you took the time to pop by!
Andrea, most of my mini's are not really mini...lately they've been in the 12"x18" size on paper canvas all done in oil pastel! I always seem to forget to add the little details, but will try and make a point of doing that on future posts...thx for asking! A BIG THANKS again to all!!

Dawn said...

carlarey said...

I am always floored by how my detail you put into things like patterns in fabric. It gives such life to your already terrific paintings.

Carolyn said...

She's great - from the eyes to the bright colors of the dress and pattern.
