Little piece of the hawaii trip we took last year.  Walking around at sunset trying to get Lily to doze off in the ergo :)

Leadbetter Beach - 16x20

The little one took amazing naps one day last week and allowed me to finish this piece.  This week we had no such luck, but I'm trying to look on the bright side.

Carpinteria Bluffs, Late Afternoon - 18x24

I had this piece all sketched out and ready to paint on a 5x7 panel....and then I looked at it and thought "I'm going to have to mix all those colors anyway, I might as well paint it large!".  And thus began my current project of big paintings.  It makes me feel like I've accomplished more when I use an entire naptime to start something big, rather than something so small.  

There was going to be more to this post, but I hear a chorus of "ball, ball, ball, ball" from the other room, which means the baby is up.
