New Painting, Bell Peppers

Bell Peppers

8 x 10 Acrylic on Canvas

Well, I didn't mention this one in the last blog, it was one of those, "saw the peppers had to paint them".

Now to get back on track, tomorrow I plan on starting the larger Magnolia. This weekend, it is the new martini painting, and I am working on a new red wine painting....11 x 14.

The weather is supposed to be great this weekend. Hopefully, I will not be tempted to plant flowers instead.

I am thinking this summer I may do a series of plein air pastels done in my backyard. Small creations from hanging out in the great outdoors. I will keep you informed.

Thanks for checking in!

Happy Day!!, "Art of the Day"

I am so excited. I have been a member of since November 2005 and this is the first piece to have been selected as "Art of the Day". It is such motivator. This past weekend I started a companion piece to go with this Martini.

I have also started a larger Magnolia. This time on a 16 x 20 gallery wrapped canvas. I vaguely remember the small magnolia not coming together easily, I have my fingers crossed on the larger one.

I took the baby back to school yesterday, "Go HEELS!" It was sad to leave her once again, but I have Miranda and Sadie to keep me company.

I did not get as much painting done over spring break like I wanted, but the house is clean, the yard is looking good, and now its time to paint!

Thanks for checking in and your continued interest in my art. I have some surprises coming up....Marine art!! I am thinking of painting a boat.....also, getting back to my roots with some new Western art. Cowboys and cows!

Happy Spring!

New Paintings

Blue Rooster 16 x 20 Acrylic on Canvas

Three Green Pears 8 x 10 Acrylic on Canvas

Vacation!! Courtney is home from Chapel Hill and I have taken the week off from the Hospital to enjoy family, friends, and painting!
These two new paintings will be listed for sale on eBay this evening. My sister will be in today from Charlotte and we are going bear hunting in the mountains. --Mom wants a carved wood bear for her front yard and we are going up to Lake Lure where the wood carving artists hang out and find her a bear.
This is going to be a fun week of painting some new and different stuff. Hopefully, I will not get distracted by yard work, house cleaning, and laundry, and can just have fun painting.
Check back again soon.
