Inspiration: Fixer Upper

Scissors and twine, 5"x7" Oil on linen Panel
SOLD
One of my favorite shows, specially now that Downton Abbey is over (weep quietly), is Fixer Upper with Jo and Chip Gains. I am so thankful for all the inspiration in grays and the texture of things new in old that they incorporate in the homes they design. The Scissors with ball of twine, is one that I purchased from their website. I've already used it to tie my roses that are spreading in my front porch (I hope those roses are to become subjects for May paintings--crossing my fingers).

The eggs below were gifts from a friend. She has the most beautiful collection of chickens that I have ever seen. The eggs represent the gorgeous variety.

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.

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
