Pearl and Coral, I detail

This was a blast to paint. I really like the color combinations. I had made a similar necklace for a customer, and she pointed out how it would go with everything, because whatever she wore would reflect on the pearl. It pearl is a large potato pearl in a very light cream, almost white surface, but it looked more pink on her because of the blouse she was wearing. I thought it would be perfect for my study of reflective materials.

With great excitement, I will go through my beads and see what else I can paint. I can't wait to show you what I find.

Labor of Love

Sunflowers in Cobalt Blue Vase,   Oil on 5 "x7"   Linen Panel SOLD  Private Collection in San Saba, TX First, I must say that everything I paint is because I absolutely love. I don't like to paint things that I don't find to be attractive to me for one reason or another. Sometimes it's sentimental reasons and other times it's as simple as beautiful colors or the texture. Either way, it's something that I want to capture and stare at for long periods of time. I want to study it and how it affects the environment around it, as in the case of Sunflowers in Cobalt Blue Vase does.

Thank you for the happy e-mails, the wonderful advice and sharing of resources, and your kindness and support all around. I've found that simplifying my life can be complicated and messy at first, but I am getting into the swing of things and finding my way around raising chickens, keeping bees, organic gardening and teaching art. During winter break, I started my coop plans--all the things coops had to have and the best way to build it so that that it would not be something my neighbors would mind seeing as they step outside their houses. I must add that I have the BEST neighbors in the world. I bought chickens in March and by April, they were ready to be outside of the broode
