My friend and fellow Indianapolis artist Kat Silver asked me if I would be interested in doing some collaborations for a local exhibit. I absolutely LOVE her work, so I jumped at the chance. She is a very skilled artist with a wonderful sense of whimsy, so we decided I would do the background landscapes, which are what I do best, and she would finish it with people, animals, etc., depending on what the piece looks like it needs. I can’t wait to see what we come up with. I think my part is finished, and now Kat will add her lighthearted magic!

At this point, I could not guarantee it would be ready before Christmas, but think about birthdays, Valentine’s Day, anniversaries, Mothers’ Day, Fathers’ Day, or the best of all: a gift for no apparent reason.

I planted some orange sunflowers this year, and now that the lilies have come and gone, it’s on to sunflower phase. I intend to keep checking this beauty every day until I see orange. I must say, though, that this is stunning to me just the way it is today.
