Still Life with Cherries

In life, these cherries are so plump and pretty (and quite tasty.) Ah, summer...the living is easy!

I hope you're having a great weekend! Stay cool!

Peanut Butter with Oklahoma Sand Plum Jelly

Private Collection

This is one of my Dad's favorite sandwiches. We share so many things in common, but this isn't one of them. I do love to paint PB&J, though!

It's been a rainy weekend here. I had to break out my clamp lights this afternoon. I always prefer natural sunlight, but it seemed to work out okay.

I hope you're having a great weekend!

Private Collection

Yesterday, I had fun painting this little guy! When my friend Jessica sent this photo, I loved everything about it. The angle, the colors and most especially, Hawkeye's sweet face. Too cute!

I hope your week is off to a great beginning!

Melon Slice

Cantaloupe is on my Top Ten List of fun things to paint. They practically paint themselves. The perfect subject for a lazy weekend morning.

Happy painting!

Still Life with Temple Bottle and Cherries

May was such a good month with regards to painting. I was fortunate to have my painting "Promise of Spring" selected as a "Judge's Pick" in the Daily Paintworks  monthly contest. And my painting "Three Little 3-Year Olds" was selected as the winner of Contemporary Fine Art International's Spring Juried Show. I am so honored to be included with these inspiring painters, and I wanted to share my good news with you. Please check out their wonderful work!

I hope you have a great weekend! Happy painting!

Still Life with Cup and White Grapes

This handmade cup is one of the treasures that I found at Tlaquepaque in Sedona. I really enjoyed seeing and painting the highlights. With all of our recent rain, the landscape is so beautiful and green. I loved seeing it reflected in the highlight. It is a most welcomed end to our long drought.

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