#1 NYT bestselling author Linda Lael Miller


Latest Discovery

Quite by accident–if there is such a thing–I discovered “Karrie on Canvas” on Youtube–and I love the loose, free way she paints, the bold colors, and the whimsical subjects.  I’ve got a piece underway following one of her demonstrations, and I’ll post it at some point.  (The famous sunflower is still in limbo, if you’re wondering, which you probably aren’t.)  Anyway, I love to share my special finds with you, so I posted a link to one of Karrie’s early videos.  Enjoy!

I’m writing today–and it’s another perfect day for it, too.  It’s going to rain.  :)

I’m listening to a promising new book–new to me, anyway–called “You Are Not Your Brain”.  I’ve developed a fascination with brain science–go figure–and I’m always on the lookout for a better way to do things.  I’ve also begun Andrea Kane’s new book, “The Girl Who Disappeared Twice”.  It’s off to a great start–go, Andrea!

So many books, so little time.  The new Johanna Lindsey is on top of my to-be-read stack–I love her dashing heroes and spirited heroines.

Expecting company today–niece Angie and beau, Taylor.  They’ll be vegging at the lake house, along with their beagle, Gus.  Have I ever told you how wonderful my nieces and nephews are?  :)  Angie is not only beautiful, funny and smart–she’s a terrifically talented first-grade teacher as well.  I’m so very proud of her.

That’s the news for today, pretty much.

Have the best day ever.

    I love watching other people paint. Probably because I simply have no talent for it. (Although I can paint circles around everyone when it comes to painting rooms!) My grown son loved to watch Bob Ross paint on television from the time he was a wee child. He would just lie in front of the tv in fascination. I think part of it might have been Mr. Ross's oh-so-soothing voice…..Oh, if you are growing weary of the rain, send a little our way. We're in a scorching drought here in Texas – triple digit heat every day and it's drier than a bale of hay!
