A Sweet Summer Memory: Geraniums and Parsley

An artist in one of the groups I post in said she could feel the “absolute joy” in this painting. Yes, the exuberance of nature on a beautiful summer day, and my joy at even just a little bit of life and color to be inspired by in the year I didn’t have a garden. […]

Apples and Oranges in Pairs for a Double Discount

Small paintings are nice when paired or in groupings, especially little still lifes and florals like these apples and oranges. I painted these two little pastels years apart but decided I could pair them with identical frames which I finished myself. I include these in my summer collection, but together their colors touch all the […]

It’s That Time Again: Geraniums and Parsley

Typically when I look out my back door I see my big vegetable garden, lots of perennial flowers and wildflowers, and my everlasting pink and red geraniums, some of which are 15 years old and saved in the basement each winter. In 2016, after my wild black cherry tree fell the year before and smashed […]

Winter Still Life, Angled Winter Sun, Fresh and Vintage

That deeply angled winter sunlight reaches farther into the windows than summer sunlight, into the corner with the fruit bowl. I’ve been looking at the late afternoon sun hitting this vintage ceramic bowl where I keep my apples and enjoying the shapes of the apples, the reflections on the bowl with its uneven design in […]

Apples and Oranges in Pairs for a Discount

Small paintings are nice when paired or in groupings, especially little still lifes and florals. I painted these two little pastels years apart but decided I could pair them especially with a similar frame. I have fun adding finishes to salvage frames. For years “Fruit” had been framed in the frame above, but with its […]

Autumn Still Lifes in Oil Pastel

I got to visit a few of my original paintings a few weeks ago when I visited a customer/friend’s home with some framing. These two paintings are “Squashes” and “Green Apples” painted in oil pastel back when I was first experimenting with them almost 20 years ago. It’s always interesting to see earlier works and […]

#30paintingsin30days, Day 2: Geraniums and Parsley

I’m working on my spatters. I think they worked pretty well here. Typically when I look out my back door I see my big vegetable garden, lots of perennial flowers and wildflowers, and my everlasting pink and red geraniums, some of which are 15 years old and saved in the basement each winter. This year, […]

Winter Still Life, Green Apples in Angled Winter Sun

That deeply angled winter sunlight reaches farther into the windows than summer sunlight, into the corner with the fruit bowl.

#30PaintingsIn30Days Review, #30in30

Well, I knew I wasn’t going to be able to do a painting for each of the 30 days, but I did 14 new paintings, and they were 14 ideas I’d been wanting to paint for a while, so I consider that a success, for me. I had five more planned, but things get in […]

Reflecting on Each Other, #30in30 Day 8

I am participating in Leslie Saeta’s annual “30 in 30” painting challenge this month. This is my painting for day 8. At this angle I could see a little splash of orange on the Granny Smith and a few specks of green on the Clementine. The light on each of them, the shadows and shapes […]
