I just finished this one and I think, I have to say, this is my favorite of all my paintings so far. Probably for the fact that I love peach but I really like it. I don't always feel like that. This one isn't for sale.
So I'm sure everyone is super busy with shopping, parties, and decorating for Christmas! I'm excited for my daughter to come home from college. She'll be here for almost a month. It's going to be great and we always have fun!

I did this study for the weekly challenge on daily paint works. I haven't painted anything in over a week
so I wanted to keep this one loose and spontaneous. I think I'll have to retake the photo because it was dark when I took this shoot. Actually it was dark all day. Dark and rainy. This painting shows the mood I've been in for the last few days. I've been feeling tired and achy, maybe fighting something off.
Ahhh...that's how I feel when I think of Hawaii. I wonder if I would still feel that way
if I lived there. Would that feeling go away?
I did this painting for an online workshop I'm doing. It's called The Complete Artist and is
taught by Richard Robinson. This was a challenge for me because of the sloping sand and shadows. The beach is called Turtle Beach on the island of Oahu. The official name is Laniakea.
I thought I'd give do another birch tree painting for the DPW challenge since my last one has a bid! I'm loving the fall colors that are emerging. I think next week might be a good one for taking pictures around town and in the mountains.
I like how this one turned out. It has such a fall feel to it and when I was painting it I was totally thinking...Halloween. It's one of my favorite holidays even though I haven't done anything for years. I used to love dressing up and then there were the costume parties. So much fun! After I had my daughter, I enjoyed taking her trick or treating and sneaking her snickers she got. (shhh don't tell her) haha! Now she's in her third year of college and going to her own costume parties. I always make sure she takes a pic on her phone of her costume so I can see it.
Here's a new catalog from a blogger friend of mine. If you love French items, antiques, jewelry, etc. you should definitely check it out. I couldn't figure out how to put the mini of it on here but here's the link

There's just something about the color pink and when you add green it's even more beautiful. I haven't done one of these in a while and thought it was time for a little frilly pink! This one has deep sides that are gallery wrapped so no need for a frame here! I've had a busy week with sales, sales, sales! I've sold four paintings in the last two weeks! Things are going well. I will be painting another large pier painting and some more umbrellas. Thanks so much for all your support! I appreciate each and every one of you!
I just finished this oil painting of a somewhat abstract figure in a red dress. Any suggestions for a name?
I think it's going to be called "The Moment". Thank you for the suggestion Terra!
I'm so inspired to paint more like this and the other vintage dress painting I recently did.
I just got the Zumba fitness program and am starting it with my mom. I need to loose 20 pounds by October. We'll see if it works! I'm excited to start seeing and feeling the results!
Welcome to all my new followers and visitors! I'm so happy to have you stop by:)
I hope everyone enjoys their weekend!

This is my latest impressionist oil painting. For now it;s going to be titled something like Girl Sitting. Any suggestions are welcome! I'll have it listed on Etsy later this afternoon but was hoping to get a little feedback before I did. Your comments are always appreciated!

These are some belated birthday flowers. They've lasted a while but it's time to get
some new ones now. I love using lemons in my paintings. They add such a fresh feel. The paint is juicy although you can't see in the photo. This is my first painting that I've singed as Jen Beaudet. I may start signing my full name but haven't decided yet. Thanks so much for stopping by. I look forward to hearing your comments and feedback.
