    Little Pig/ oil on gesso board/ 6 x 6/ SOLD
    I have been experimenting with layering thicker paint to achieve more texture. and mingling colors. Animals seem to be good subjects to try this with.
    I am also painting over an under color. This one was black flat acrylic paint. If you look closely, you can see small pieces of black peeking out.
    I am continuing to work on revising my blog for 2017. ..
    Happy Thanksgiving!!!

    'Sunflower Hill' Oil on Canvas Panel12 x 6
    An artist friend of mine told me about a sunflower field that was blooming, and since it was very close to where my husband and I used to live when we were first married, we jumped into the car and headed out to take some pictures. It was a wonderful evening, and so much fun to see the sunflowers and all of the other places we went to in our old stomping grounds - lots of memories, and lots and lots of changes!!!

    Garden of Eden Beans - 6 x 6 inches - oil on canvas Last weekend I dropped by a friend's house, and, as we sat chatting at his kitchen counter, a neighbor came by to drop off beans she had just picked from the garden. She had the beans in a berry basket and I was immediately struck by the color combination of the aqua basket with the green of the beans.
    Before I left, I asked if I could take home some beans to paint as I thought they were quite beautiful. I gotta be honest, he seemed a bit reluctant to let them go and asked if I planned to eat them (as I assume he wanted to make sure they...
