Summer Garden Food Painting

          By now your summer garden is producing more food than you can consume and now is a good time to start canning your surplus vegetables to enjoy for months to come. Here we have some of our garden’s vegetables laid out in preparation for canning while our tuxedo cat is soaking in the summer sunshine from the comfort of the window sill.

Flying A Kite Painting

         One favorite summertime activity is flying a kite. It is recommended that the wind speed be between 5 and 25 miles per hour. It is important that you choose a wide open space, stay away from power lines and never fly a kite during storms. For more information on flying kites, visit http://www.nationalkitemonth.org

Summer Reading Painting

Summer Reading Painting

          Another great summer past time is reading. Whenever summer approaches the media always publishes lists of books that they recommend for your summertime reading. Books for the beach, books for your vacation and books for your personal leisure. I created this painting originally for the newspaper that I worked for.

Summer Dreams of Travel and Adventure

         Summer is the most popular time to travel and it is difficult to resist the allure of dreaming of your vacations, real or imagined, past or future vacations. Sometimes your dreams can have a direct influence on your decision making process. Perhaps your dreams will steer you away from poor decision planning and towards a pleasurable vacation and adventure experience.

Summer Garden Illustration

Painting Garden Weekend Art Joanne Meshew 225

Summer Garden Illustration

       Gardens represent the wonders of nature. Many days of hard work in the spring erupt into an explosion of color and beauty in the summer. Sunflowers, zinnias and other flowers create a sanctuary for the bees and birds. The flowers will attract exotic small birds that you normally do not see to your garden and reward you with their beautiful song. Do not forget to plant some catnip for the cats to enjoy.

      This was a cover for weekend section of our newspaper.

Cicada Painting

Painting Cicada Season Art Joanne Meshew 225

Cicada Painting

      Another friend of summer is the cicada. Their presence is mainly heard and not seen. I always thought that the sound from the cicada was similar to the sound emitted from the alien spaceships in the movie “The Day The Earth Stood Still”. The cicada soundtrack is unforgettable and synonymous with summer.

Butterfly Painting

    It is still summer even if school is now back in session. One of my favorite visitors in my garden are the butterflies. They are a most welcome addition to my summertime paradise as they seem intent to visit each and every flower in my garden. They seem to be especially attracted to my zinnias, which are almost as bright and colorful as the butterflies themselves.

MerMouse Sculpture

Mer-Mouse Sculpture by Joanne Meshew

MerMouse Sculpture

            No, he is not the result of an errant CIA experiment gone wrong. MerMouse is all about evolution, which explains why he has put his past behind him and no longer wants to have anything to do with water including getting wet. While he is dedicated to adapting to his new lifestyle he occasionally finds it convenient to return to the water to escape his new enemy, cats.  We wish MerMouse a successful transition and if you would like give him a safe home to live, please follow the Etsy link below;

             Here is an update of the Calico Cat and his Bird Buddy sculpture. Their Best Friends Forever relationship has added an extra 3 members as our feathered friend’s eggs have finally hatched. Here we see the mother bird providing food for her babies while the calico cat continues to provide protection and support for his growing family. 

             The summer months have a way of providing a foundation that transitions into different responsibilities along with the seasons. The love and support that these 5 Best Friends Forever share will help them thrive in the later months and seasons beyond summer.

Chameleon 2 Sculpture by Joanne Meshew

Karma Chameleon Sculpture

        There is more than one chameleon in my summertime garden, introducing my Karma Chameleon wood sculpture. The chameleon can see in more than one direction at one time with his stereoscopic eyes which makes him well suited to see the changing of the seasons. This Karma Chameleon is immune to being surprised over the quick close of summer that the rest of us experience yearly plus he teaches us that our behavior during the summer months will directly influence our fortunes for the remainder of the year.

Pegasus Sculpture

      Introducing another one of my friends of the summer months, my Pegasus wood sculpture. In Greek mythology, Pegasus was commanded by Zeus, king of gods, to bring thunder and lightning from Olympus. In my summertime environment he streaks across my garden as quickly as the summer months streak across my calendar. Pegasus would certainly win the Triple Crown of racing if winged divine stallions could enter the Kentucky Derby.

Merman Sculpture

          Introducing the merman, a wood sculpture citizen of my summertime mythology. He is shown on the sea floor in his underwater environment. In Greek lore, the merman is considered a powerful figure but in my experience he often gets lost underwater and refuses to ask for directions.

          It would be difficult to find 2 better friends than this charming calico cat and his bird buddy wood sculpture. It is summer and the bird is busy hatching its egg while his best friend forever calico cat is more than happy to provide the shelter and protection necessary to help his feathered friend. The top of this sculpture opens to reveal that this calico cat consumes fish so there is no reason for his bird buddy to be concerned.
