I haven't been to the flower markets in a few weeks. My apartment is so hot in high summer, it seems like flowers wilt as soon as I get them in water and I don't have the heart for it. That might partially explain why my blog seems full of painterly alternatives this week. Linda Monfort's acrylics are also hitting the right spot. I especially love the blues in the first image, but then again, I always do, don't I?! Visit her Etsy shop here.
