Happy Memorial Day, and a big thank you to all who have sacrificed their lives to serve and protect our country.
Happy birthday dad (yesterday, May 24th) - who turned a very young 81! :) Dad celebrated with good food, chocolate and family. Yay! I'm grateful for such wonderful brothers and such a great dad...I can't ask for better.
Had a little time to sketch and paint last night..there's little time now between work-work, but it's something I have to do to keep balance.
Hope everyone's enjoying this long weekend in the USA, and hope everyone beyond is off to a great start to the week! ~ Shirley

In the summertime, mom loved watching squirrels grab persimmons from the neighbors tree, and then head back to her part of the fence and eat them.

It's beginning to feel very summer-ish over here. The flowers are in full bloom..I'm loving our California poppies! What's wonderful, too, are the sounds of the baby birds in a nest above our door...what a treat!
I wanted to share a little snippet of a piece I've finished for my agent..I'll be able to share the whole piece in a week or so. I hope you've all been well, and I wish you a wonderful weekend ahead! ~ Shirley
