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

Residence in Durham, New Hampshire
I received he flowers on these paintings 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.

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

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
