I enjoy painting still lives partly because I LOVE TO PAINT, but also because I enjoy looking staring at all things in nature. Leaves, flowers (all flowers), birds, insects and even clouds. I could stare at clouds all day. Well, my lovely family indulges me with tiny gifts that they find out on their walks. So, when I come desk, I find flowers (some of which I have planted), leaves that are changing colors, insects that lived their last day (they have to have lived their last day before they are allowed to collect them as my specimen (or props for still lifes), and more recently feathers. I have many beautiful iridescent feathers that turkeys leave behind as they walk through our backyard in the mornings. The painting above is of a feather my husband left on my desk. This picture doesn't show off the turquoise in the feathers as much as it does in person, sorry.

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. In that respect, I feel ALL my paintings are a labor of love.  More often than not, I have to create a painting, wipe it all down, and start all over again if something is just not working. Some never get completed and I just end up painting something totally different on that panel. Then there are some, that I just have to paint, no matter how much trouble they are giving

Roses, Chickens, and Bees

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
