School is about to start again and it seems when it does the Holidays are close by and time goes faster. I decided this week I would "make" things go a little slower to get myself to relax. I get a lot of inspiration from so many other blogs, for my home and for my art. So, I went to several blogs that I've loved for so long, but really got to stay for a while. It was absolutely indulging--I should do more often. 

t "have to" paint a certain item and I search and search and am not happy until I find it. That was the case with the snap dragons below. I was thrilled to find them after most of June and July searching for them. I think they are perfect with the pink carnations. Although I am also working on a painting that is just the snap dragons. I did have to go a bit bigger than my usual paintings on this one in order to be able to fit them in the canvas without having to lose too much detail. 

There are a few pieces left that are starting at $25. 

I must no forget to say a HUGE thank you for ALL your support. Your encouragement and your desire to have my paintings in your home is more than special to me. 
It is truly an honor. THANK YOU!!!!

Moments after I post something, every time, without fail, I think "Oh, I should have proofread." However, instead I hit "submit" or "Send" the following time end up just regretting it. So, I am so very grateful that you overlook my grammar and spelling mistakes. 
Oh, my Mrs. Cole, my AP English teacher would mark my posts with lots of red ink if she ever read them.

Thank you for the many the registered for e-mail subscriptions. Your interest in my work is delightfully encouraging. I also appreciate your continual support and generous comments. THANK YOU.
The above strawberry painting above is part of a small painting series with strawberries. They are the smallest I've put for auction and felt like little gems, wonderful reminders of when I made jewelry.

Now for the June Giveaway Winner..... And the Winner is......

Landscape plus Still Life Paintings Equal FUN!!!!!!!

This is my new attempt at painting landscapes from my patio room. It's been rainy off and on and a bit busy to venture out to paint. That will be this week. For now, I played a bit with painting of the Oklahoma sky and added the still life later. For the last painting, I used thistle that was growing on the side of the road. I kept passing by it on my way home from work, but was never prepared for the prickly  plant. The color really makes it stand out among the fields of green in the back.

June GIVEAWAY

Hydrangeas in Glass Vase,  Oil on 4"x8" Linen Panel
SOLD

Residence in Durham, New Hampshire
May was super busy and little painting was done. However, I look forward to June and some landscape painting starting this Thursday. I can't wait; my pochade box is ready to go. 

I almost forgot to mention, the flowers on these paintings I received from my gardener friend, Judith Miracle. She asked me to take part with her in a floral design show. Although I did with a bit of fear, as I had never done anything like that before, she helped me be brave. I took a bunch of flowers and props I use for my oil paintings. I was honored with the Petite Award for one of my small arrangements and I couldn't have been happier. Judith was so generous with her lovely flowers from the show and gave them ALL to me. I have several other paintings on the works in which I try my best to do them justice.
