Gloria J Zucaro's "Wishful Thinking"

8"H x 8"W  Original Oil on Panel
Unframed $75.00, S&H to your ZIP



It has turned completely frigid and prospects of 4 to 8 inches of snow loom ahead.  Although I love to have cool sleeping conditions and love the four seasons, it is usually around this time of year that I really appreciate the thought of 70 degree temperatures with a slight warm breeze and sunny skies.  I saw these flowers near a weathered chair and vintage rusted car in Door County Wisconsin last July.  Take me there oh my imagination!  This is my Paint Party Friday entry for this week.  Happy PPF!
 If you are in our area of the Northwest suburbs of Chicago, I have paintings on display at Mainstreet Art Centre, The Dole Mansion in Crystal Lake, IL and The Old Courthouse Gallery in Woodstock, IL and The College of Lake County.

  5. Hi Gloria, thanks for stopping by. The pluots taste a lot like plums and look like them too, smooth skin! They are delicious when ripe. I'm surprised so many have not heard of them!
