Merry Christmas

Hi Friends, this is the painting I used for my Christmas cards this year.  I enjoy painting the image I use for my cards each year.  Because I won't be mailing one to all of you I wanted to share it on here
and wish you all a very Merry Christmas.  Have a safe holiday and I'll be back soon.

Still life

Hi Friends, I have worked on this painting off and on for a few months. The background color changed a few times. Lately I have been enjoying painting lighter backgrounds, I like the softness. I like the idea of lost edges blending into the background. This is oil on a 11" x 14" canvas. 

I uploaded a few images to FineArt America tonight, you can order prints or cards using my images but I haven't figured it out completely.  I ordered some cards to check out the quality of them, I'll let you know.

Also just a reminder that I have a collection of paintings on my website for only $50, the link is to your right.

So great to see you

Fresh Fruit

Hi there! Sorry I haven't posted the last few weeks, we just came from back from a stay in Siesta Key. So great to get away from the cold, I'll have to hang onto those warm memories to get me through our long winter. 

This little painting is a 5" x 7" canvas painted in oils. I picked up this grapefruit in back of our condo in Siesta Key and these little orange fruits looked just like oranges to me though tiny.  Painting the leaves was the most fun.  Do you know what the tiny little orange fruits are? 

So great to be back

Small ones

Hello friends!  All of these are little 6" x 8" oil paintings.  I recently bought a case of gold frames this size so I've been setting up some still lifes to paint.  Time to buy more fresh flowers, it really excites me to paint real flowers.

In a few weeks I plan to run a sale on my website, I'll let you know.

Stay warm and thank you for visiting me.

Sunflowers

Hello there! Sure cooling off here but I love Fall with all the changing colors.

Last week I painted 5 paintings with daisies and yellow mums until they died. I bought some sunflowers and have done three paintings using them and this is one of those.  I am having a ball painting with fresh flowers instead of silk. 

This is oil on a 8" x 10" panel. 

So nice of you to check in on me. ��

Fresh Flowers

Hi Friends,  my birthday was Monday and my sister brought me a bouquet of flowers. I took some Tuesday when I painted with my group and painted this, oil on a 8" x 10" canvas.  I have done two more paintings since using these flowers and different vases. I have lots of wonderful silks but the real thing is the way to go, lesson learned.  I'll be buying fresh flowers when I can. 

I wanted to mention I have a sale going right now on my website until Thursday night, follow the link to the right.  One collection is reduced 20% with reduced shipping too.

I hope you are enjoying your day!
