Dust Bath

Here we are enjoying the dog days of summer with the most wonderful weather we have had in many seems September has become my favorite month for that very reason.

And so it was, on a sunny, warm early Saturday evening past that my husband and I enjoyed a fund raising gala at the exquisite home of local entrepreneur Danny Murphy and his wife, Martie.  The evening was spent enjoying cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, a fund raising auction for the benefit of the local Joyriders Club, and wonderful entertainment by musician extraordinaire, Matt Anderson. 

To top off such an unforgettable evening, thanks to my very generous husband, I came home with a gift that will make me smile every day for the rest of my life.....and all I have to do is look at it.  I have placed it strategically near our breakfast table, so it will be just about the first thing I see each morning. 

'It' is this painting called 'Dust Bath' by our own east coast, world famous artist, Lindee Climo.  (As readers of this blog know, I feature my favorite artists on Fridays, so please watch this Friday for more Lindee Climo art and information).

I think you will see why I fell in love with this painting.....even if I weren't already a collector of vintage children's book illustrations, I would have been completely taken with this image......

I hope you will enjoy it, as well!
