Sunshine & Autumn

Bid on this painting!
Sometimes I miss the cool autumn breezes, but today the temperature finally dropped!  I felt some cool air for the first time in months!!  Sorry, I'm not complaining but it did inspire me to paint another fall painting.  I love fall colors, your probably wondering where does she find fall leaves in the desert?  Well, I had a little help from Michael's craft store!  

Hope you enjoy!  Happy painting!

Carry On

6x6" original oil painting by Krista Eaton.  Painted this today because I love painting pretty things like this!  I just wish I had more time to just sit with friends and enjoy tea.  We artists paint and after that there is a avalanche of tasks waiting for us when we are done painting.  And the days can slip by very fast!!  It's all good.

Apples & Blossoms

I used to ride my bike along the shore in a place called Blackie's Spit, near crescent beach in British Columbia, it was a park on the the ocean and wild birds lived there and the apple trees.  Around this time of year I would find apples along the trail!  Click here to bid on this painting!

Afternoon Cup

Well, I just love teacups!  I drink lots of tea.   Lately I enjoy making chai tea lattes in the afternoon.  I guess I like things to be cozy! It is back up to 100 degrees today but I am still try to reel in the fall by doing things that remind me of Fall in Canada!   What's your favorite?  Hope you enjoy!

Looking for a looser brush stroke I painted without thinking!  I had to keeps hand moving so that my brain would not try to correct it and straighten everything out!  Hope you enjoy!
