7 Things That Make Me Smile

Classic cars (especially convertibles),

polka dots,

fresh beet, apple, carrot juice (with a squeeze of lemon),

pineapple basil (smells so good and tropical),

lime green critters,

leaves that curl when touched,

and the hostas in the backyard…all in bloom!


HOW TO PAINT A GIRL & HOW TO PAINT AN OWL are now available on-demand as self-study courses! Access the classroom until August 2013…there’s plenty of time to paint!


  1. Beautiful! Such lovely things to love. :D

  3. Great inspiration! I love the Pineapple Basil, too.
