Ode to Edvard


For some reason -- perhaps too much exposure to OMS -- this little painting reminds me of comedy/tragedy masks. It is more of a tragedy/tragedy, though. It sort of feels like "The Scream" of my still life world. Ha!

Well, I'm off to get a nice dose of fresh air. Take care, friends!

Fresh Peach with Vintage Crate


In the Texas panhandle, we seem to move from winter to summer. It's bitterly cold one day and hot the next. This year, however, we are having a true spring. I'm glossing over some of the horribly windy days, but for the most part, our weather has been gorgeous. Since that is so unusual for us, it's all right to brag about it, right? Good.

Along with the beautiful weather, the market is filling up with fun things to paint. Tulips, peonies, peaches, oh my! Life is pretty sweet. I hope you're having a great week!

Happy Easter to you and yours.

Silver Bowl with Blackberries




I am fascinated by reflections, and this little silver bowl did not disappoint! It turned into a self-portrait of sorts, and that is always fun.

I hope you're having a great week! Happy painting!

Still Life with Peeled Clementine



After a week of feeling under the weather, it was fun to be back at my easel! 

The color orange has always been tricky for me to paint. I'm slowly learning that saturation is the key for the darker value areas. Or at least, it seems to be the key with citrus. Do you have a color that is an issue for you, too?

I hope you are staying WELL and enjoying these last few weeks of winter. Winter is my favorite season, so I am trying to savor each day.

Happy painting!

Still Life with Egg



This little egg was so fun to paint. It was the perfect still life subject for a windy February day. 

I hope your week is off to a great beginning! Happy painting!

Cherry Preserves


Celebrating my brother's heavenly birthday today. He was the creative one in our family. He could play music by ear, and his artistic abilities knew no bounds. And he was wickedly funny. We will forever miss his sweet spirit. Happy birthday, Paul! You are so loved!
