Summer. Major Sale !

It's summer....lovely blue and yellow summer.....
Deep blue yellow sunshine...and long lazy days at the beach...and sailing on the seas......

 Maxfield Parrish

 Parrish's work defies categorization since he was part of no traditional movement or school, and developed an original and individual style. However, his work has been highly influential.

summer vacation

means one must pack a suit case...and decide what to take. I always take a bit too much, because I don't know exactly who I will be....what mood, other than happy to be on vacation, will I be in. I always default to tomboy and comfort...that means cowboy boots, Converse, jeans, Tshirts, silver and turquoise. Oh wait, that's pretty much my daily uniform.
