American Frozen Fathers...and some Flowers

Hmmmmm, weird title, but let me explain:

Father's Day was low key here at our home. We grilled steaks for lunch and then the boys gave Dad a gift of a quiet afternoon so he could have a nap! I think he had a great Father's Day,
Hope your family enjoyed a nice Dad's day.

It was a cloudy rainy weekend too, so not much gardening was done. But I needed to finish a few paintings, so the rain was a good thing. I cut a few flowers from the yard, snapped a photo and brought them inside for the rest of the rainy weekend.

We were given fresh cherries from a friend's cherry tree and I didn't want them to spoil. I don't think we would have been able to eat so many in a few days. So, I washed them and placed them in the freezer. Has anyone frozen cherries before? I hope they stay fresh and taste as yummy as they do now!
Here they are drying on the butcher block before the "Big Freeze"!

American Folk Art will update today at noon, with an Americana theme. I was able to finish one new item, a soldier silhouette:

(this gent is 5 X 6, framed)

Please visit to see all of the Americana offerings of all the artists.

......I think I covered everything in the title, but I'm not sure if it makes any more sense!

Hi Suzanne, Love your latest gentlemen painting. Ah seems to have been raining here in NY for practically the whole month of June. LOL I know someday soon we are bound to see the sun again.
