Iced Water with Lime

Winter is my favorite season, but painting limes has put me in the mood for the long, slow days of summer, porch parties and playing in the flower bed.

Have a great Thursday!

Two and a Half Limes

I love the scent of freshly cut limes.  Definitely, a pleasant way to practice "seeing" and painting green.

I hope you're having a great weekend!

Happy Hour

Nothing says "Happy Friday" quite like an icy, cold margarita, eh? I hope yours is a relaxing one. Let the weekend begin!

Brown-eyed Peep

The store shelves are filled with sunny marshmallow Peeps, Easter eggs and a rainbow of jelly beans. It can only mean one thing. It's here! Spring!

Signs of Spring

Many years ago, my little niece gave me the ceramic bunny box.  I would always try to stash tiny treasures for her in it.  Mostly sweet treats but it was a fun secret hideaway for us. Some times, it's the littlest things that hold the biggest place in your heart.

I hope you're all having wonderful weekend and a happy St. Patrick's Day!

Flesh Tones and Onion Skins (Sold)

Recently, I read that if you want to get better at mixing and painting realistic flesh tones, you should practice by painting onions.  At the market, I'm always attracted to the pretty reds of apples, strawberries, cherries, etc.  And I've been giving onions the slight.  No more, however, I was completely charmed.  They are really fun to paint!

I hope you have a great Thursday!

Abiquiu Bowl with Apples

I found this handmade bowl at a little shop in Abiquiu. It is imperfect and irregular. And I love it. It is quickly becoming one of my favorites.

Have a great weekend!
