If you’ve been with me since the beginning of this blog (almost six years) you’ve probably seen one of my favorite posts from 2009. Shot in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. Fiestaware bowl.
Summer heat as intense as the winter’s snow. Rain this afternoon. Sitting on the front porch and listening and watching it rain without getting wet. Used a new white pasta bowl V gave me for my bday. The ripe sweet fruit. The hammock where the naps are especially restful. Love summer! See a small oil by Picasso with a bowl of cherries click here.
