"Life can feel unfulfilling until we learn to appreciate the magnitude of joy hidden within the smallest insignificant moments."
 Our friend who is a boat captain and skilled spearfisher, caught hogfish and offered us two filets. They were so fresh and tasted so clean! It was a delicious meal and an unexpected treat.
 I made some fresh compound butter to go along with the hogfish, using ginger, garlic, and lemon.
 This little angel started her first day of soccer practice! Such a cutie pie.
 I went to the movies and dinner with a group of friends. We chatted about the movie at dinner and then celebrated Clay's birthday! We managed to surprise him with dessert.
I made the cupcakes and frosted them with his favorite colors: red, white, and blue.

Jon and I did a joint lesson on Monday and had a great time! Even in the heat, where it reached 100 degrees that day.

100 Paintings on Canvas #96, Florida Landscape Series

#96 is a painting in my Florida Landscape Series that was a favorite of many. The beach entrance sign, "Please leave nothing but your footprints" is a kind and whimsical way to say "no polluting".
Kind of clever? This painting has sold.

100 Paintings on Canvas #95, Florida Landscape Series

#95 is a painting of a pair of Ibises. These seabirds are interesting with long legs and long beaks, patrolling the shore for dinner.
