Rut . . . and a blast from the past

Well, I seem to be in a painting rut.  I did a little bit more on Tomatoes but not enough to post.  I'll just wait to upload it when it's done.  I've been doing a lot of work outside in the yard, that needed to be done:  lots of weeds to pull and gardens to plant and decks to stain.  By the time I'd finish with my chores, I was just too beat to paint.  I can feel I'm getting inspired again . . . have a few paintings in my mind . . . so hopefully next week I will be able to buckle down and get my painting groove on again.  In the meantime, here are a couple of old paintings that I thought I'd post.  They are on my website, but in case you haven't ever meandered over there, here they are.  Also I've thrown in a photo of the little oasis I made outside my studio door.  The tinkling of the water will be delightful to paint to!

My studio door is to the left outside of the frame.
