Iris



Well....I had trouble with the painting until I determined that what really bothered me was the composition and the color. I replaced an object and added more color and I am happy. :) Perserverence

My Satin Shoes




I used just 2 brushes in this painting. I wanted to work with a limited number of strokes and so I chose a number 12 flat and a number 6 flat. It was loads of fun and I am happy with the outcome.

My Little Umbrella



I have been busy with non painting duties and have missed painting. I pulled this little painting together today...

Autumn



Today on my walk the air was crisp and the smell of autumn was in the air. The colors in this still life evoke that kind of feeling within. Quiet walks...the air nipping at your face and fingers...a time of rest for the earth.

It Falls Like Rain



I am not sure why I chose this title except that the painting made me feel like rain inside. Not a bad feeling just a solemn, beautiful moment.

Two Little Birds



I have been painting these birds over and over again and feel that this painting is finally working. I learned so much from the continued exploration.
