Oh be swift to love, make haste to be kind.”

Country Woman Studio. The subscribe link should work and send you a confirmation.  I think I’ve fixed that but cannot tell. It won’t let ME subscribe, I guess because I am the blogger causing all the problem!!

Apologies to my wonderful friends who did leave me comments on my cowgirl travelogue post. Or tried to subscribe. About half were successful from what you said in your comments. But I’m afraid they landed on the photography page.  I couldn’t figure out how to move them, but haven’t given up yet. As are those who know a whole lot more than I do. So they will show up if I have anything to say about it. They were in the right place and I replied to everyone… Imagine my surprise! 🙂

Some doodles that became much more. A repost that is just as relevant today. Telling the heart’s pain in colors piled upon one another. A ball of wet hue, a color illustration.

I Moved HERE! Country Woman Studio


L’Adelaide + Thunder with Cheerios

Gone Cowgirl Shopkeeper

The time has come to break down this country woman’s campsite, kick the embers aside, load my saddle bags onto my faithful steed, Thunder, along with his cheerios snacks. I’m off for greener pastures …. my very own website!!
*Country Woman Studio*


I’m up and running on my new site now.
Come watch me fumble along in my illiterate website building. It’s a thrill almost everyday I add something new or something else breaks.
What fun is that!? I’m already a bit nuts, so what is the best thing to do?
You guessed it!

My new site is here:

In fact, you can visit me and watch me fumble along in my crazy, OCD website-building illiteracy. What fun is that!?

Be sure and say hello so I can find out if I did that comment thingie right, OK?




I Could Eat Color – I Have Synesthesia

am friends with a lovely blogger and artist named Sarah. Recently she posted an excellent Synesthesia article to her blog, First Night Designs, with a link to the original Neuroscience News report, here.

Synesthesia + Me

I have synesthesia but only learned a few years ago it was called synesthesia.  I had never thought much about my need for {certain} colors in my life or my art. I did know that certain colors made me physically ill but didn’t everyone feel that way? I didn’t talk about it because why? I had no idea I was different. At least not in “that” way-other ways, well…

Inspirations of the Summer Garden

Beautiful Victor Hugo Quote~
A Garden

A garden to walk in and immensity to dream in–what more could he ask? A few flowers at his feet and above him the stars.”

~ Victor Hugo

Garden in Late Summer

Garden Corner in Late Summer

Crape Myrtles do nothing most of the time. But once summer is at it’s height and just beginning to slide, they decide it’s time to glow… literally glow in my garden.

They sit back by the oaks, next to my crochet Mexican swing and have interspersed themselves impetuously around the garden, like it or not! Some are bushes like these and others seem to want to be trees. Either way I much appreciate their luscious red beauty about now when most everything has succumbed to the heat of the day!

Next to these are blue salvia, Mexican Bog Sage to be specific. Don’t plant it unless you never want to be rid of the stuff!

And always there’s a pot of flowers or five… This one is a beauty and admittedly fat and fragrant from my nursery not my green thumbs….  Continue Reading
