July Fourth

Three Flags by Jasper Johns, 1958 [encaustic on canvas]. Johns created this work two years after he was discharged from the US Army.
All of us at Stylish Heath hope everyone has enjoyed summer’s biggest holiday with picnics, fireworks, grilling and parades. There is nothing more decadent than a long weekend, its absolutely spectacular! We are taking a break this week to enjoy a few facets of summer……spending time with family, and celebrating America’s 243rd birthday!!!

And, most importantly our thoughts and prayers are with those who are in Southern California, please stay safe during these difficult times of uncertainly.


Happy Fourth

IMG_2656IMG_2650Taking a leaf from the pages of my past I have been grilling hamburgers and hot dogs all afternoon to serve with homemade cole-slaw and potato salad. I remember as a child how exciting the Fourth of July was as we anxiously awaited sundown so; that we could ignite sparklers, firecrackers, Roman candles and those neighborhood dad’s who would cross state lines to purchase M-80’s made the season explosive for all the kid’s. For those of us who are not fortunate to live close to a “fireworks stand”, the Internet has made purchasing for the private consumer easier.

Today is Independence Day and to those of us who call America home, let’s come together in celebrating her 238th birthday.

Enjoy the Fourth Safely,
