The Sunday Night Digest = me + a possible glass of wine + reflection on the previous weeks ongoings and a glimpse into happenings next week. You're Welcome

There is no such thing as time or days in July. Just sun and sparklers and the water. Enjoy it while it lasts.

Sundays are for new beginnings, gardening and long lazy days in the sun, yard and at the beach before meeting family around the dinner table. This picture was taken at Moore Blooms 6 or 7 or 8 years ago and although my cool old car is long gone, my summer Sundays on this island still look pretty much the same. 

Last week I had the great opportunity to visit this tiny chapel, off the beaten path, and given new life by the work of Piotr Uklański and curated by Dodie Kazanjian. Lucky Newport. It felt really good to be in a space seeing art again in person. See Art & Newport before Labor Day to book your own viewing. Very worth it.
I am not sure what has gotten into me, but I have not stopped painting since returning from my trip to Michigan earlier this month. And miraculously, I love everything I am making. A lot of pieces are already in the gallery and some have already made it to their forever homes, see some here or stop in the gallery any day 11am - 4pm to see them in person... more to come soon too!

I guess this is what my Saturday nights look like these days. If you follow me on Instagram I occasionally post a photo here or there from my home, but not usually. This space is just asking to be shared though with the sun speckled table and overgrown plantings. How are you making it work this summer? Are you finding micro-entertaining at home seems to be the theme? It feels just right for me and I'm hopeful to do more of it when I can in the coming weeks while we still have this gorgeous weather.

My dear old friend from my early days in Los Angeles, Elliot Hans, is starting a podcast... it's not here just yet, but follow him on Instagram to be in the know (he also has a very cool vintage inspired fashion line and takes amazing photographs). Elliot has infectious enthusiasm and has had his hands in so many genres over the years - film, photography, fashion and wellness - that it's just amazing to know he has a forthcoming podcast where we can all absorb a little bit of his being and know-how. 
Happy weekend from our family to yours

Much love XO Kristen
