Nandina, I Oil on Canvas 4"x6"
A Painting a Day? That is my New Year's resolution. This is practice for it.
The OKCPS Fine Arts Department met last week at Gail Sloop's home, a wonderful artist and friend. Gail had some beautiful berries for decoration. They are so very festive. The next day I found a bush in front of my eye doctor's building and they were so kind to share a few branches with me. It's amazing how things work out that way.
My plan was to use it for a still life for the kids to draw, but we ran out of time, so I brought them home.
The little green ceramic piece is one that I purchased at the City Arts Center Pottery sale. I still have to work on it. I don't know why my shadow, among other things looks a bit off. I'll finish it before the Christmas and place on Ebay along with other paintings.
I am very thankful that you have visited my blog throughout the year and left or e-mailed me your wonderful comments. They have been extremely delightful and oh so very precious to me. I do hope you continue to visit and share your thoughts.
With this, I would like to wish every one of you a very Merry Christmas, happy Holidays, and a peaceful New Year!
