Pair of Peppers

6"x6" Oil on gessoboard

More from the farmer's Market! Had to buy these because of the colors...they complement each other so well, not only in painting but in salads too and yes.... purple and green are two of my favorite colors!! The purple looks so much better in life, the photo has made it look too dark!

Yellow Daisies

8"x6" Oil on gessoboard

I picked a few of these small daisies and just plonked them in this vase to stand on my window ledge...but decided to paint them first. I like the shape of this small vase and I find yellow a difficult color to paint sometimes, so thought it would be a good challenge for me...and It was!!

Another very nice surprise..."Olive Snack" was selected for FASO's Fav 15% in theApril Boldbrush Competition....I can't believe it! That is the second one, It is really encouraging!

Heirloom Cherry Tomatoes

 6"x6" Oil on gessoboard

A quick little painting of these cherry tomatoes I bought at the Farmers Market! They remind me of traffic lights. Still managing to do some small daily paintings between the larger ones!!

Daisy Love

8"x6" Oil on gessoboard
$100 + s/h

More daisies! I really love the white ones...well... anything white really!! This set up actually started out as a full vase of daisies until I got my viewfinder out! I started cropping in and this composition really appealed to me.
My smaller paintings are still taking a back seat until I finish bigger ones for a joint exhibition in October. 
Three finished...another three to go!!

Recap of April Paintings


There seems to be a green theme going on in last months paintings... my favorite colors are green and violet and I think it definitely shows here!!
I have finished two larger works, two studies  and now onto another big one... so things are moving in the right direction at last!!

I was very happy to have my painting 'Sauce Bottles' selected for FASO's Fav 15% in the March Boldbrush Competition, it's a nice surprise and helps keep me painting!!
