Spring Botanical




sold
This just says Spring to me! I traveled down the mountain the other day and on my way back up, noticed a tree starting to blossom!
 I was so happy to see that and since then we've been enjoying beautiful weather and walks on the trails just about everyday. 
My puppy dog is sure happy too!

Branches and Lemons...and Peonies and a starfish


sold

I'm doing the 30 in 30 painting challenge from Leslie Saeta. I've been following her blog for years now and love her pallet knife paintings and her amazing show, Artists Helping Artists. I always get so much inspiration listening to her radio show and the information is endless! Only problem is I can't keep up with it! Just as I'm having a hard time keeping up with posting a painting a day. I've done about two a day but posting them each day is the hard thing for me. It's great to have goals though, and the new year brings fresh ideas and inspirations! This painting is acrylic which is not my normal choice of medium. I enjoyed the quick drying time for a change and liked the results. I have a few more to post of a few barns and another landscape so look for those in the next few days.

Roses with Fruit



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!

Peonies!

I've done this little painting several times for custom orders. I recently did one for an order and at the same time painted this painting. I had never completed two paintings at once. 
I liked how I didn't have any leftover paint. It also helped keep the colors similar. 
The background and jug is a little washed out in this photo. 

I haven't had a chance to work on my cloud paintings yet but plan on getting to those
and my piece for the gallery this weekend. Christmas time is coming soon and I want to offer some small gifts at a local shop. I just have to come up with some ideas. Do you think art is something 
people buy as gifts or is it more a personal item?

Hope you have a great weekend!

My mom brought me these beautiful peonies from Trader Joe's. It was so sweet of her. I plan on doing a really large one but I think I need to keep it for my new home! I hope everyone has a 
wonderful week!
