Sunbathing Seal






Last summer, we made a quick trip to San Diego, where my husband and I were born and raised. We visited one of our favorite places, Seal Beach. This little seal was dozing off and every few seconds would his body would jerk and he would awaken. I guess it's a natural instinct for protection against preditors, but what a very restless way to sleep!

Fall Study




I painted some produce and leaves to try to remind me that it's Fall here in Texas, where the daily high temps are still close to 90 degrees. We don't have the brilliant colors I grew accustomed to in Ohio, so I'll make up for it with by painting a bright orange pumpkin and yellow squash.
