“America’s Independence” Celebrate your Spirit to be American this weekend; Decorate your lawn or your bike with red, white and blue, Go to a parade and wave a flag, Salute your troops and give thanks to a soldier, Have a slice of watermelon or apple pie, Ride a wave or jump in the pool, Throw a volleyball or some horseshoes, Play kick the can and eat a hot dog, Light a sparkler or a punk, Take a rock and smash some caps, Watch the fireworks or better yet have a kiss under the fireworks, But above all of this, Be kind to your fellow-man, Have lots of fun and laugh until your sides hurt. Most importantly, Stand Proud and Tall to be an American because men fought for our Independence and gave us the freedom to do all of these things in this Beautiful Land of Ours. Happy 4th of July America. -bp

In order for me to start a new painting I must have order in the studio.  First, I wipe down my table and put away all my brushes and paint  I used during the last piece I was painting. Then  I get out a clean sheet of watercolor paper, T-Square, triangles and erasers, sharpen my pencils, have my photographs ready for reference,  and select my new group of music for the cd player. Now I am ready!

I  stare at a Blank piece of paper, the ideas one gets from staring at white paper is incredible!  First thing that pops into my head  is the  composition, then how large do I want to go, where is my horizon, I wonder if the Phillies are playing tonight, wow, it sure is a beautiful day outside…oops I got to get back to my painting, what color will I make the sky…..oooh, I love this song, I think I’ll dance now!    -beth palser
