Artist Kim Meyers Smith was such inspiration to me 
with her painting of a Black Eye Susan.

They are just so dog gone happy!  I just had to 
post more happy yellow, hope it makes you smile. 

Beautifully Suddenly shared this lovely image from  her Farmers Market - Ferry Building, Ca.

Masses of yellow flowers do take my breath away.

Just Perfection! A table centerpiece by

  Market on the Square

I have wanted to get back to playing with 
my photos and it's been awhile since I joined Mary @
 Dear Little Red House - - Mosaic Monday Party

Why is it even the simple tasks can take so darn long?
Last week was her Mosaic Monday Yellow, oh well
Yellow is great anytime. 

 These sunflowers from last weeks Market on the Square were so fresh
and alive the centers just popped with life.

This wonderful watercolor is by artist Leslie Saeta from  

These lovely paintings may inspire me to drag out my watercolors
and give it a try. I am going to add that to my creative to do list. 

Come join me at some of my favorite blogs.  Thanks for dropping by, Kathy
