Circling Koi



6 X 6 inch oil painting on canvas panel.

When I pulled the reference photo for this painting I immediately thought it was the perfect composition for a square panel. I like how everything keeps my eye moving around and around inside of it.

Sailing On Choppy Waters

Capturing the atmosphere in this one was a fun challenge. Working with so many blues was hard though. I hope you like it!

Sailing Day



7 X 5 inch oil painting on canvas panel.
S O L D

It’s been a while since I’ve been on a boat, years in fact. The feeling of freedom as the wind rushes by is something I’ll never forget though.

Lullaby



5 X 7 inch oil painting on canvas panel.
NFS

This is the companion painting to “Where Next,” the previous bird painting. Both of these are going to be hung in my daughter’s room.

I’m about 6 weeks away from my due date now (wow). My hands and feet have been swelling (which I didn’t experience when I was pregnant with my son). There are still so many little things I need to do but honestly, I just want to put my feet up and sit in front of a fan these days.

Now that my son is back in school I’m getting in as much painting as I can. I’ll keep posting but if I disappear for a long time, you’ll know why….

With Sprinkles



5 X 7 inch oil painting on canvas panel.
$25 (Plus $9 shipping within the U.S.)

Painted as part of the DSFDF challenge.

It never ceases to amaze me how my son’s eyes light up whenever he sees a cupcake, especially a cupcake with sprinkles. There is always a lot of hopping up and down while he repeats the word cupcake over and over.

What powerful little desserts they are!

Bouquet In Orange and Pink



6 X 6 inch oil painting on canvas panel.
$50 (Plus $15 shipping within the U.S.)

As an artist I find inspiration everywhere and because of that the list of things I want to paint is endless. Flowers have been on the list for a while and I finally grabbed a moment to paint some.

Of course many of you have already tackled this subject and I’ve been very inspired by your work. Thanks Nancy Medina, Dana Cooper, Dori Dewberry, R. Garriott and Karen Phipps your beautiful work always motivates me!
