good afternoon lovelies!   

so this was what i have been waiting to share with you!  my newest painting & project which has been under wraps until late yesterday.  holly of decor8 and ez of creature comforts were sweet enough to invite me to be a part of their joint project called kindred.  inspired by the sounds of summer, i've created this mixed media summery painting called "late night june bugs." i have more to say about the process, and the ideas behind the inspiration, in the little interview over on the kindred site, so be sure to pop over and read it.  but, i've saved the best part for last~ over kindred, you can download this, or another summery image for yourself as desktop for your computer!

i also have brand new prints of "late night june bugs"target="new"in my etsy shop!   if you'd like to purchase this print, just mention kindred in the "message to buyer" area and  i'll throw in another summery themed print as a special treat just for you, absolutely free!  see the summery ones up for grabs here to take your pick!  they are some of my faves!  : )  just a little something from me to you~
