It was amazingly awesome taking a little jaunt to Long Island. I had never been there before and everything about our trip was fabulous~seeing @JimmyBuffett, the gorgeous beaches, the waves, the sunshine, the company, etc.. but there is truly no place like home. 🙂 Mystic has it’s own magnificently beautiful vibe and I love it here. There is so much to explore and see in this world and I am grateful to be surrounded by beauty wherever I go.

“I don’t think there’s anything on this planet that more trumpets life that the sunflower. 🌻🌻🌻For me that’s because of the reason behind its name. Not because it looks like the sun but because it follows the sun. During the course of the day, the head tracks the journey of the sun across the sky. A satellite dish for sunshine. Wherever light is, no matter how weak, these flowers will find it. And that’s such an admirable thing. And such a lesson in life.” ~Helen Mirren⠀

May you find a little time to follow the sun this weekend. 🙂

This painting was inspired by the sunflowers and sailboats I see this time of year here on the shoreline. I painted it last summer for “The Collective”~ an ongoing collaboration and passion project with @tinahirsig. Tina’s latest piece in the collection is up on the LauraTwoTina blog. It always amazes me how different our work is, yet out ideas about art and life are so similar. You can take a peek here: https://bit.ly/2nt6Gcj or follow us @LauraTwoTina 🙂
