~Sold~

I'm back!!  Finally back in the studio and playing catch up with the 30 in 30.  This painting is posted as #18.  I have to catch up with painting 14-17 as I missed those.  I will post these paintings as soon as they are completed, but they will not included on Leslie's blog as I missed the deadline.  

I fell Tuesday~ one of those nasty old lady falls that leave a mark.  I hit the wall with my face on the way down and the headache has just now subsided.  I might need to invest in one of those "I have fallen" buttons.  My granddaughter was with me and it was really funny.  I am laying on the floor dazed and she is looking down at me saying "It be alright GaGa - you okay?"  Yes, it was hard not to cuss and cry, but I didn't want to give her an even bigger story to go home and tell her mother....."Mommy, GaGa fell down and cried and said the bad words" --yepper, we couldn't have that~

On Point IV is #18 of the 30 Paintings in 30 Days with Leslie Saeta.

Highway Poppies

 

Highway Poppies 
6" x  6" 
Acrylic Paint on Ampersand Gessobord
~Sold~

Highway Poppies is #13 of the 30 Paintings in 30 Days with Leslie Saeta.  This painting was finished the day before the "big fall".  I was getting behind as it was, but this has really put a damper on things.  I slipped in the hallway and fell.  Before I actually hit the floor, my face hit the wall.  This has been a set back in my 30 paintings in 30 days~   I will have to double up this weekend and, hopefully, get back on track.  I am sure the face will get back to normal...just some swelling and discoloration...and a big freakin headache!   But, back to the poppies.  My first year in North Carolina I was amazed at the beautiful poppies growing along the highways. The spring in North Carolina is fabulous--poppies, day lilies, magnolias, camelias, gardenias, crepe myrtle, the list of flowers is endless...

Highway Poppies was painted using professional artist grade acrylic paint on a museum quality Ampersand Gessobord.  This painting can be slipped into a frame or placed on a small easel for display.

Tea with Lilies

 

Tea with Lilies
5" x  7"
Acrylic Paint on Ampersand Claybord
~Sold~
 
This is painting #5 in the 30 Paintings in 30 Days with Leslie Saeta.  I was afraid to start this painting, another floral failure would have rocked my confidence enough to slow down my 30 in 30.  I am so happy with the way this one turned out.  The vase was a Christmas present from Taylor last year and the teacup belongs to my sister Cindy.  Maybe having things I love included in the composition made it easier to paint.

Tea with Lilies was painted using professional artist grade acrylic paint on a museum quality Ampersand Claybord.  This painting can be slipped into a frame or placed on a small easel for display.

This painting has sold.

I spent the evening going through magazines and looking at pictures for inspiration for the next painting....so far nothing....may be a landscape!

Thanks for stopping by~ see you tomorrow,
