The colors in both of these paintings says summer loud and clear. Nice!

I particularly liked yesterday's 'tunnel'. In real life I grow tunnels through holly trees and other shrubs, as I love the idea of a garden of 'rooms' joined by 'tunnels'. I'll put some photographs on my blog sometime.

I must admit I'm thoroughly enjoying your landscape series

Both beautiful and I enjoyed the slideshow. (I tend to count things--I think there were 76.) Gorgeous surroundings.
