Love this, Marina. 😍July is my birthday month.
Happy birth month, Sylvia!!!!
So glad you like it, my friend!
The name July, from Julius [Caesar], means ‘descended from Jupiter.’ The first part of Julius is etymologically the same as Zeus. There’s a good account of the relationships at
Ah yes… May Jupiter or Zeus or whoever up there, think kindly of us [though I don’t know why they should! 🤣]
Lovely colors and art, Marina, as always, and Happy July! This weekend we’ve had June gloom, breezy and cooler, but we’re not complaining, we baked a couple of weeks ago. 🙂 By the way, I ordered a mug (to add to my collection) of one of your designs. I’ll take a pic when it arrives and share with you. Happy July and sending hugs! ❤️🎆☀️❤️
Ah, thank you very much, Lauren!!! I can’t wait to see which one you picked!
Sending you sun and love and many many hugs!!!
You’re very welcome, my friend. I still want to buy a painting, but I need to figure out where it would go in our house that would inform the design and color. I thought a mug would be a good start. 🙂 Lots of hugs and love and sun to you too! ❤️🌻❤️🌻❤️🌻☕️
Awww… Lauren, I’m honored!
More hugs and love back and wishes for a happy Fourth!!! 💙❤💙❤🌟
Have a Happy July! Next stop, Lammas! 😎🙋♂️
Yes! Let’s hope it won’t speed its way to Lammas! 🤣🙏 Thank you, my friend!
love the green triangle Marina that unites the lines – my birthday month and that big 7 is especially apt this time around 😉 Happy July to you and Hera!
Ah… so happy to hear that and may you enjoy a wonderful birth month, Laura! Sending hugs and tail wags. 😘🤗🐾
Wonderful design dear Marina…. The 7s…. Argh where oh where did 6 go… It flew far too quickly…. Hope we can hang onto the month of July a little longer…. Feel it could be a significant month… 🙂
Thank you so much, my dear Sue! Where did half a year go?!!!!!
May it be so …in a good way. We all need it to be! 😉
Love and many hugs your way. 🤗❤️🤗❤️🤗
🤷♀️….. crazy… Time as we know it is speeding… or our perceptions of time are no longer held in such density… hence our experience of time is shifting.
All good as we break through the barriers of this prison matrix..
Enjoy your creativity and weekend Marina. Thank you. 💕
You too, my dearest friend!
Happy July, Marina!
