Let’s face it. I’m a terrible blogger.

For the past year, my life has been a tornado of travel and life-changing events and I have neglected my poor little blog. Forgive me, dear followers, but I am back with a post and a brief report on exciting news.

What a travel year 2015 was! From California to New York and from Italy to Tahiti … I have been blessed to have had these opportunities to visit so many great places. But now I’m going to settle down because my husband and I bought the most wonderful retirement home in the coastal town of Aptos, California. It sits on a hilltop amongst vineyards (not ours but we get to look at them!) and is just ten minutes from one of the most beautiful beaches I’ve ever seen. We are beyond thrilled and hope to make our big move from Texas to California soon!

In the meantime, I’ve been trying to squeeze in some painting time and here are a few paintings to share with you … keeping it beachy. Because, ya know … I’ve got beach on the brain. I promise to be better about blogging, even if my posts are brief. Thanks for sticking with me!

All of these paintings are available on Daily Paintworks.
