Just a quick dash~

I’ve been hard at work on a few different pieces, none of which are fit to share yet. Here is a little one I did quickly for the Daily PaintWorks site.


Curvy trunks of a service berry reach up into blustery skies while native sunflowers tumble gleefully down a hill.

It will be changeover time at Lemon Street Gallery this weekend up in Kenosha. I haven’t been there since a few days after the rioting there. What I saw that day was distressing~demolished buildings and boarded up windows and doorways everywhere. But. On all that plywood were messages of love and strength and healing and inclusion. What a beautiful thing. Let’s bring those things to the whole country.

  1. The pretty sunflowers brightened up my morning, this rainy day. (Not complaining, we need it.) Lovely painting, Melissa. Joining you in offering healing energy to your gallery, Kenosha and our whole wounded nation. šŸ’™

  2. I’m so glad, Barbara! Thank you. Hooray, you’re getting rain! It is such a relief, isn’t it?
    Together we and so many others like us will bring our beautiful nation back to itself again.
