The Art of the Summer

Our summer was busy. Fun and busy. Relaxing and busy. I thought I'd do a whole lot more painting, but somehow I didn't have the peace of mind to sit in my studio much. But I did manage to finish a few paintings and one big commission I worked on for a long time.
This beautiful Ganesha painting below was a commission I finished this summer. I learned so much painting it and I am immensely grateful for the experience!!  

The two abstract pieces came together while we were doing renovations on the house and had to live in our guest room for two weeks. Doing a little art helped me manage to stay relatively relaxed while all was chaos around me... (Those two abstracts might become part of an animal painting.

The elephant below also was to be an abstract piece, but I saw the elephant in it and here it is.
Now my studio is almost put together again after painting it and putting in laminate flooring and I can't wait to paint, paint, paint!!

I hope you all are doing well! We are waiting for fall here, but so far it's still warm and very humid and mostly overcast and often rainy. Not the best weather, but we are hopeful that soon it will cool down!!
