Sense of adventure

Don't you love a sense of adventure? It's sorta like life, never know what's around the corner. Humm, that's pretty deep, what do you think?

Rose and Postcards

My goal is to post more often and improve the photo quality of the paintings shown. If anyone has an idea how to do that would you let me know? Thanks. If you've attended many workshops or just a few you'll often hear the instructor tell you it's all about brush mileage. For you non painters, it means painting more, applying yourself and you know what? Those guys are really on to something. The more I paint the more I become aware of lights and darks in a work and the importance of color. OK, I'm off to work. More later.

Tea With Lime Wedge

Usually, you have tea with lemon. Why not made a little change and try a lime. Tea and life are sort of alike, sometimes you just need to get out of a rut and try something different. Since painting this little 6x6, I've added a glaze and changed the background a little. I'll post this again and see if you like it better. See? Change is, good. What do you think?

Blue Glass

Blue is one of my favorite colors. I enjoyed painting both the flower, which was a challenge and the blue glass. I'm seriously thinking of a series of glass and flowers, lord knows I have an enough of both. Our yard is full of beautiful flowers thanks to my husband Roy so I have no excuse. Do you have a favorite flower and if so, what is it? Let me know.
