I'm still experimenting with different color combinations.  Please bear with me.  This is a complementary/split complementary color scheme using red, green, yellow-green and blue-green.  I love red with turquoise.  And green with red.  I'm just not sure about using them all together.  One thing is for sure, however, the turquoise needs to be lightened a great deal.  I would prefer a much more watery hue.  Ah, well, next time. 

Have a great evening!

Dreama's Kitten

This is my entry for last week's Daily Paintworks challenge posted by Dreama Tolle Perry.  This little kitten ate my lunch, but I have a weakness for all things furry.  So, I couldn't resist trying to paint such a sweet subject. 

I hope you're all having a great weekend!

Wow, it feels like I have been gone forever.  My husband and I went away for several days to celebrate his birthday, and I can't tell you how much that I have missed painting.  And all of you.  It was nice to be away from the Internet for a bit, but I'm looking forward to seeing what you've all been up to these past days!

No sooner than my bags were unpacked, I started painting.  A girl's got to have priorities, right?  My cupboards are still bare, but fortunately, my lavender has started to bloom.  Along with catching up on laundry, purchasing produce is on my "To Do" list for this evening.  Well, I had better get busy.  See you all tomorrow!

Table for Five

The little sugar bowl is my latest thrift store treasure.  The sugar bowl and the background are more of an olive green shade, but I was not able to successfully correct my camera's color distortion.  Usually, I have to decrease the yellow in my images, but today, blue seems to have staged a coup.  Don't you hate when that happens?  Me, too.

Wishing everyone a wonderful Mother's Day tomorrow.  May your special day be filled with blessings!
