"A goal without a plan is just a wish."

"Onion in Gingham", pastel, 7x5"
This is another in my mini-series of paintings of vegetables and gingham. The 30 in 30 Challenge is really good for me right now. It is helpful to have a goal! My new favorite quote is...

"A goal without a plan is just a wish."

Antoine de Saint-Exupery

"Where Have All the Flowers Gone?"

"Where Have All the Flowers Gone?", pastel, 7x5" 
It was 3 degrees when I woke up this morning and I was longing for summer!I found a photo I took in July of flowers from my garden. Where are they now!?!

Playing with my pastels...

"The gingham dress was all I had to wear"

"Red Pepper in Blue Gingham", pastel, 7x5"
"In your cotton shirt and faded jeans, you came for me
And the gingham dress was all I had to wear
With a dollar in your pocket and a borrowed car
You picked a yellow daisy for my hair
That's the way it could have been"
Something about a voluptuous pepper and gingham makes me smile! The lyrics to this Dolly Parton song are making me long for warm summer sun!

 I am going to try a few  other vegetables wearing gingham during the course of the 30 in 30 Challenge.
