My artwork on distressed wood planks

Something new and exciting is happening in my studio!  Several years ago I agreed to license some of my work through a company who manufacturers gorgeous giclee prints on distressed wood planks.

 They do a beautiful job and make my artwork look so good.

Floral Still Life, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, Flower Still Life, 12x12x1.5" Oil, "Garden Bounty"

I picked these flowers (peony and hydrangea)  from my garden, and placed them in sunlight.




purchase here
260 + shipping


I have to admit, I struggled with this piece.  I started with a brush, but after much frustration, I turned to my trusty palette knife.  In the end, I am happy with the values, and the glow on the hydrangea on the rigfht.  And the colors, love the colors.  In fact, the more I look at it....the happier I get!

So the moral of this story is, don't give up!




HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my dear granddaughter, Courtney!!

Small Floral Still Life, Daily Painting, "Purple and Yellow" , SOLD

Today I am posting another of my small floral still life series.  I think this one is particularly perky with its polk a dot red mug.

$96. + 6.50



I am finding this series so relaxing to paint.....just what I need during the hectic holiday season.

Yesterday I spent the morning baking and running errands, at 1:00 sharp, my paint group, Pieces of Eight invaded my home for a group project.  I was still cleaning up after their departure when my husband came home with my 10 year old grandson, Trevor.  They had a session of touch football in the front yard while I jumped in the shower and readied myself for a holiday party and play.  Whew!  It makes me tired to just think of it, but it was  a great day.  Although you won't see this post for a while, I am writing it on the morning of our Pieces of Eight Christmas Sale and All Around Great Time.  In a short 45 minutes the fun begins!


So I am enjoying this short moment of inactivity.

Are you ready for the holidays?  I still have to shop, bake, cook.........the list never ends.

Pansies have always been a favorite of mine.  Even as a child, I loved their cute little faces, so it was a natural for me to paint them.
