a painting a day- summer lovin

What's interesting about this picture above- is that I was taking a little afternoon snooze-a-roo and I woke up and took a few portraits.  I think one of my favorite things to do in the summer time is to take an afternoon nap.. well I think taking an afternoon nap any time of the year is one of my favorite activities. but naps are the best in the warm sunshine.

Here is my painting a day! and I really wanted to paint another person riding a bike in a floral print.  I wanted to try and make it more dreamy- and have a little pug in tow. :)  I could also go for a nice bike ride this summer.  What's your favorite summer time activity?

PS Painting is an original oil painting- 8X8 for the Goodfoot group show- 88 strong.  If your interested in purchasing this amazing painting- shoot me an email erikaleesears@gmail.com and we can go over the details.

Oh yes, afternoon naps are pretty much essential!
Fav Summer activity would be anything outdoors: hiking, biking, camping and what not. I love being outdoors as much as I can before the snow comes.

I love naps too. And my hair always looks great when I wake up :)

I love hiking in the summer. Especially toward the end when I can smell blackberries and dry earth.

Is that a pug? I love pugs. Very well done, once again. You're very determined to stick with this regimen.
