Happy First Day of Summer! I know it doesn’t exactly feel like Summer, with everything so unsettled and social distancing still a thing, but here we are, nonetheless. Even though I’m grown and don’t have summers off, the thought makes me feel happy and fizzy. Let’s celebrate!
I featured today’s artist, Tali Yalonetzki (A.K.A. Tush Tush, A.K.A. Tosya), in my 2018 International Women’s Day Etsomnia™ post. Her painting above has been in my Etsy favorites forever, and I can’t believe I never profiled her before. I guess maybe I just wanted to keep her to myself.
Tosya’s art represents everything summer means to me: memories of happy vacations and trips to the beach and playing outside and freedom from winter clothes and days that seemed to stretch on forever.
