VANITY UP CLOSE SOLD


I couldn't help but paint a close up of these beautiful bottles of nail polish. I loved the light that looked like a halo around each bottle. The colors of the shadows were equally compelling.

LEMONS SOLD


This painting was difficult to do for some reason. It was a wipe out until I finally produced a painting that I felt I liked. The yellow were a particular challenge in this one.

JUST PEACHY


I bought these 'white' peaches and they were great to look at but not much for eating. Maybe they were not ripe. Still having fun with lots of paint and limited strokes.

LOVE STRUCK SOLD


You know,I don't wear nail polish. Every once in a while I will paint my toe nails. I have, on the other hand, always had a fascination for the varied colors of polish and lipstick. I also enjoy the shapes of the bottles. This red foil heart box is my button box. I am sure that it once was home to chocolates but that has been a very long time ago. When I put these items together I enjoyed the interplay of light and reflection.

STARFISH SOLD


I keep this starfish up on the top shelf in my studio. My late golden retriever, Sky, ate half a starfish many years ago thinking it was food. He lived for many years after that encounter, but, I am aware that these are enticing little morsels to some dogs!

STRAWBERRIES SOLD


I am very fond of these glass dishes with bands of color around them. They are from the 1950's I think. The strawberries were in my refrigerator and I just thought that they'd pair nicely with the glassware.

VANITY SOLD


I LOVE 'girl' things like lipstick, perfume, nail polish bottles, and pretty little compact cases. In this painting I was working for limited strokes. I would lay down the paint and leave it without manipulating it in any way.

LITTLE ORANGE TEAPOT SOLD


Red Orange is another of my favorite colors. When I saw this great tea pot in one of the stores in town I wanted it right away. But, I thought and thought about it and when I went back to the store it was still there and I decided that it was mine! I am not a tea drinker but I have always loved the shapes and sizes and variety of design of teapots. In this painting I backlit the teapot with natural and studio lighting. I was experimenting with the changing values and shadow.
