Happy Solstice, Happy Summer!

I love Summer Solstice. ♥

Not only because it's the longest day of the year, with over 15 hours of daylight. Not even because it provides a wealth of painting inspiration (today's projects include a bit of painting on a Midsummer "Honey Moon" piece)...

What I love most about June 21st in the northern hemisphere, is that as the days now become shorter, we now officially begin to anticipate autumn (YAY!)

Don't get me wrong, I appreciate the blessings each season has to offer, and summer certainly has it's share; fruits and vegetables fresh from the garden, warm evening breezes, backyard gatherings with friends, weekend road trips...

But autumn still beckons. ;)

How about you? Do you have a favorite season?

Whether you do, and whatever it is, I wish you all the blessings of midsummer today!

Back very soon!

What a great piece. I love your style. I wish I could do lettering and make it looks so good. As for my favorite season, I would have to pick two, Autumn and Winter. That's when the good holidays are celebrated. I love Halloween and Christmas.
