Pink Lilies

Hello there! I painted this recently from a set up. It is always a fun challenge to paint white. I used the Golden Opens, these are acrylic paints that dry much slower.  I like to change things up. They seem a little stickier than say oils but you can blend them better than regular acrylics. If you squirt out a puddle of the Golden Opens and let them sit out they would stay wet a couple of days. This is painted on a 8" x 10" canvas. 

Thanks for visiting me!

Wine Bottles

Hi there, I am not a wine drinker but I grab up great looking wine bottles when I see them. I especially love the blue bottle. This is acrylic on a 8" x 10" stretched canvas. I debated about adding names to the labels and tried it over and over but was never happy with it and I thought that was where your eye would go. 

Thank you so much for checking out my new work

Hi there!  I painted this yesterday. One of the gals in my new Tuesday group brought in this gorgeous azalea to paint.  Most of the group painted it from different directions.  It's fun at the end to see everyone's version of the same subject.  This is acrylic on a 8" x 10" canvas. 

Thank you so much for coming by

Hi there! Did I spell seagull right? Is it one word or two?  Anyway they are such fun to paint.  One is painted on a 4" x 4" panel and the other is a 8" x 10" stretched canvas. Both are acrylic, no surprise there I guess.  

Today is the first day of Spring, woo hoo!  It has been a long long winter, I hope we are rewarded with a beautiful long Spring. 

Thanks so much
for visiting.

Koi Fish

Hi there!  Painted this in acrylics on a 10" x 10" canvas, I like square paintings.  Had fun and added a swirled pattern and stenciled a few metallic circle patterns also, not sure you can see them. 

I have been accepted into a group called The Brush and Palette Painters. A group that has been together for 50 years and were formerly called The Brushettes. It is a honor to be asked to join,  a very well respected group filled with lots of professional artists.  I start Tuesday, excited and a little nervous.

Enjoy your weekend.

I love purple

Hi Friends, Purple is my favorite color and I just love painting with it. Actually a bit of purple works well in almost any painting. This 10" x 10" painting was done in acrylics in my fun wet into wet style. 

Busy painting coy fish right now, always trying something new.

I hope you are enjoying your day.
