farewell may...

what a wonder-full month you were!
so much joy!
so many projects!

i transformed a small chest of drawers
{2 fridas ☺}

& this tall one for my unmentionables
{and hung new blinds}

fresh paint and knobs
for this vanity
because this baby girl passed her state board
and is joining the family biz!
so proud of mia♥
oh! of course i was painting pictures too...
but there was mother's day!
& laundry on the line...
and wine!
oh! yes, i was still painting in-between...
there were beds to weed
 may flowers to love
and biscotti jars to fill with verbena 

 and cement blocks to make useful
 there are always books to read
and saints to paint...
st luke, patron saint to physicians,
healers & artists
st therese of lisieux
patron to flower-people
kit in a flowered frock

my commission
{video on the painting at the end of this post}

may was the finest month this year.
{so far}
this video shows me painting my month-long project...
"the angels"

Xo, lisa


  1. Loved the video, Liza. Your whole month was full of life. St. Luke is outstanding.

  2. Wow, Lisa!!! You have been busy! Lots of amazing art here. I really love the Frida dresser and the video..Congrats to your daughter!! She is so pretty, but I bet you already knew that. ;)

  3. Great stuff here Lisa. You have been busy. Love it all from the succulent garden, the pretty flowers, your paintings and the furniture. These are all such good examples of how you live a beautiful creative life. The laundry hanging on the line is sacred to me. Like the red thread it connects us to our ancestors and to each other. xx

  4. The video was wonderful. A real treat to watch you working. You were very productive in the month of May. Hope June is just as great for you.


  5. what a wonderful looking May! I can see that you are enjoying life so much. Everything feels so positive and falling into their perfect place :) Such an uplifting post my friend ... glad I came here :)

  6. In addition to seeing how this stunning painting came to be, I liked the background music. The Angels are breathtaking. I find it reassuring looking at St. Therese's smiling eyes. I almost gasped when I saw kitty rubbing against your painting, hoping that the paint was dry! What a wonderful fulfilling May must be for you. I love all your pieces!

  7. you def had a great month! great work and love the garden and that chest with Frida is FABULOUS! XOXO

  8. Lisa, what an exciting post! I love, love love the Frida cabinet!!!! Wowee. You are amazing.
