Berries Mix Still Life, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 6x8" Original Painting SOLD

Moving Sale!!

25% Off most original paintings

I couldn't find anything to paint, so, I decided to paint my breakfast.  On this day, I was waiting for Hurrican Irma to pass by us.  After an extremely stressful week, with reports ranging from landfall on the east coast of Florida to the west coast, and back again, it is headed for Tampa as I paint.


 Our house is encased in metal panels and no sunlight or noise is heard outside.  It is sunny, or raining.....I have not idea. Later, the wind will howl and the walls may shake, but our primary fear is flooding inside out home.

Painting has helped me get through the day and taken my mind off what is happening outside.

Thanks for viewing my blog today.

This time of the year is so hectic.  Now that I think about it, every time of the year has been hectic lately!

I am busy painting several large commissions, so for the moment, my daily paintings are scarce.  I decided to post some older works, and the theme I chose today is yellow.

Animal Painting, Cat Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 6x8" on Canvas Panel, Hello Kitty SOLD

This cat lives at our local art supply store.  My art group, Pieces of Eight, would meet there each week, and we spend the morning creating, visiting, challenging.....and then have lunch together.

 Kitty loves to interact with us, jumping in the middle of our paintings, climbing into our art bags, doing her cat thing.  Usually mid morning, she climbs into her favorite sleeping artist browser.  For those of you who don't know, it is a canvas sling, much like a hammock.  That is where I snapped a photo of her, which of course, woke her up.

Can you tell, fom her expression, that she seems less than happy with me?

Hope you have a wonderful day!

Tree on Fire, Autumn Painting, Fall Foliage, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 8x10x1.5" original art, SOLD


25% OFF most original Paintings

Autumn in the mountains is where I want to be.  Last year, I was very lucky to spend two months there.
 I was inspired to paint this one from the ever evolving show I saw each day.  It brings back childhood memories of northern Ohio and Michigan.....minus the mountains, of course.

 What more could I ask for?  It gets better and better each day.  Of course, in the mountains it seems the color is climbing to the sky.

One evening we spied a herd of Elk in the meadow.  You can hear them bellowing in the woods this time of year.They come down to the meadows to feed at dusk and dawn..  This herd was one make and about 30 females.

As much as I love it there, I was ready to head south to Florida when the weather got cold.  When the trees are stripped bare, and the cold winds are blowing, I enjoy the beautiful beaches. Life is good!

 Another fish painting.  Don't ask what kind of fish it is, I don't know.

I do know I am enjoying these palette knife paintings immensely.  I have been so intense about my brush work, that I had ignored the palette knife for months.  Now that I am working with it again, I am enjoying the freedom it brings.

Thanks for reading my blog today.
