Oh happy day! Last night, we finally started putting furniture back in my kitchen.

The kitchen, more than three long months later, is finally finished. Now I have the long process of cleaning all the drywall dust off everything and try to downsize all the things I had in there before the tree fell.

You remember the tree incident, right? If not, read about it here.

As you can see, I’ve selected a beautiful shade of burnt orange for the walls called “Cinnamon Sunset” offered by Valspar.

I’m so loving the way it looks against all the wood trim and can you see those floors? I am in love! It’s called Claremont Oak by SmartCore Pro, and it’s luxury vinyl. I’m told you can spray it down with a hose and it won’t warp. I won’t be testing that out.

Also, the contractors scraped off the old popcorn from the ceiling and we now have smooth as a baby’s bottom ceilings. It’s pretty nice.

Below is the door to the deck. I left it the green color it was because I love it and I think it goes great with my new burnt orange walls. I wish I would’ve cleaned the windows before I took the photo but oh well. Dog nose prints, what can you do?

I’ve been sick of feeling like I’m a maze in the house. We’ve had all the furniture stuck where ever it would fit. It was in the living room, dining room, bedroom, the hallway and even in my bathroom. It’s been tight for a long time and now it feels great to be able to walk by without banging my knee or hip on something.

Hopefully now I can concentrate on getting back in the studio and get some new paintings created for my exhibit in August. I’ve got the hallway again at Alexandrian Public Library. I’m hoping to have a new series and I’m thinking of it being trees of all things. Ironic, huh?

It’s just so wonderful to have the kitchen finished I don’t even mind all the rain we’ve had.

Learn more about me on the ‘About’ page under the additional links menu. I’m an artist – a painter mostly and an avid gardener. I paint a variety of subjects including birds, koi fish, my gardens, ponds and flowers as well as anything having to do with nature especially trees and tropical scenes. I also enjoy painting abstracts and have started created more and more of them. My most favorite thing to try to achieve in my painting is is mystery and telling mystical stories.

If you would like to keep up with what I’m doing, I have a newsletter e-mailed about once a month that gives you special status for invitations, birthday greeting and more. I’d love for you to add your email to my Friends and Collectors list!
