Sorry, I have not been mother is here for a visit and we went to Atlanta this past weekend to see my sister graduate from college. Yeah! We had a wonderful road trip.
This is the last of the small canvas. I will have to get some more of these soon. But first! While on the road trip I picked up a new Flow Blue Pitcher. It will be the center of new still life paintings to come.
I also have an orchid in bloom. My little plant that has sat quietly in my studio has come to life with three magnificent blooms. This will be featured with my new little Japanese teapot in a still life.
I have new martini paintings on the way and I am still working on the "Monet-like" pond garden painting. This should keep me busy for a while.
I would like to thank all my new "fans" on Facebook! Thanks for keeping up with my art!
Well, I had better go.... so much to do, so little time.

Two Red Pears - SOLD
6" x 6" Acrylic on Gallery Wrapped Canvas
Available for purchase directly from Artist
$25.00 plus $7.00 Shipping --Click to purchase from Online Gallery
This is the newest pear painting! I am almost out of the case of 6" x 6" canvas that I purchased. I have enjoyed them so much. I will definitely have to order more. That is the down side of living in a small town. --No art stores. The last time I drove to Charlotte to buy canvas, they were out of my size. Since gas is ridiculously expensive, I think I will just continue to order online from The staff at Cheap Joes are wonderful and ordering is simple, but I miss strolling down the aisle looking at all the pretty art supplies and wondering what I could do with them.... My favorite is looking at the pastels. A wall of color neatly organized and on is like a rainbow on the wall. Well, back to the real world.
I do have the water lily pond started....I guess I am intimidated by the beautiful ponds of Monet....I have been putting off really getting into it. I will post it as soon as I have conquered my fear and finished it.
I have recently opened a store on At my zazzle store you will be able to buy stamps, mouse pads, note cards, coffee cups and many other items made from my original paintings. I will not be selling any prints of my paintings, just gift items. I have not fully stocked the store yet, so if there is a painting you would like to have made into note cards, postage stamps, etc..., just email me and I will add the item to the store.
Well, I had better get going. So much to do.....
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the new painting!

Three Olive Martini IV

Three Olive Martini IV

Commissioned Painting

I am caught up! For the time being.

I have sent five paintings to be included in the gallery opening of Flourish Boutique and Gallery in South Bend, Indiana in June. If you are near there in June, stop in and check it out! I will give more updates as the time for the opening nears.

I have just finished this commissioned martini painting and can now get back to the other paintings I have been working on.

I will be opening a store at soon. You will be able to purchase my art in prints, cards, and other gift items. I will update you when the store is opened.

The weather has been wonderful! Much needed rain is here! I have planted hydrangeas, begonias, azaleas, and calla lilies. Soon there will be paintings of them all!

Biggest news! My orchid plant that has been in my studio for two years.....just three green leaves and a stick has finally bloomed! There are three beautiful orchids. These will definitely be in a painting very soon.

Thanks for stopping by....there will be more paintings soon,
