Yes, it has been a while since I checked in, but I have been busy.  I took a break from the 30 paintings in 30 Days to complete two commissioned pear paintings.  I accept commissions when time allows and I rarely refuse the opportunity to paint pears~

Green Pears 2013 and Pears and Grapes II were painted using professional artist grade acrylic paint on a museum quality gallery wrapped canvas with painted sides to allow for hanging without a frame.

Now, back to the 30 in 30~  I will finish the last day with one of my favorite pear paintings~  It will be posted tomorrow and then I will post a compilation of the paintings I was able to complete during the month.  Now off to bigger and better~

Check back again tomorrow for the last of the pear paintings for the month~

Better late than never!  I am going to get caught up!  It is tough finding time to paint every day and work full time.  I couldn't do it without Kevin cleaning house and cooking~ 
I must admit I did spend time quality time with my loved ones this weekend instead of painting.  There was shopping, eating out, and martinis so much fun~  

Now back to painting~

Sunflower with Shadow

Available for Purchase

Day 5~  Thirty paintings in thirty days in September  ~30 Paintings in 30 Days with Leslie Saeta.  

Continuing with the Sunflowers.  I was pressed for time to stay caught up and still work on the larger still life sunflower painting.  One of my sunflowers took a dive and had to be separated from the others.  When I put it off to the side in a small bottle, I noticed a cute shadow.  I thought this would look good on canvas and painting was born.

Tonight, I am having dinner with friends, so I might get a day behind, but I will catch up on Friday night!

Day 4~  Thirty paintings in thirty days in September  ~30 Paintings in 30 Days with Leslie Saeta.  

Continuing with the Sunflowers.  I am working at painting more loosely. This went a bit crazy,  but I love how the wild brush strokes on the dark canvas turned out.  I had purchased several small black canvas and I think this was a really great start to the sunflower painting.
