Sunflowers & Stock

During these busy summer days I enjoy a little me time painting at the kitchen counter easel!  With kids constantly asking for snacks, and things to build, or do all day it's a good break to paint my little daily painting!  Don't get me wrong I wouldn't have it any other way.  Summertime is special.
Hope your are having a great summer!  Happy painting!

Time Well Spent

Bid on painting here!
Decided to take on the "orchid challenge", something I made up... there isn't really an orchid challenge.  
Anyhow, I was given this beautiful orchid for Mothers Day and I look at it and I kept telling myself to paint it and now that I have, I am full of ideas on how I want to capture it in a painting.  I am playing with the abstract in the background, to offset the structured Orchid.  I really quite enjoy this process and will most likely try it out with my other favorite flowers.  Hope you enjoy, and happy painting!

P.S.  "A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing."  George Bernard Shaw

Blooming Bells

I am not sure what these are?  They look like blue bells... I hope they are.  They were in with a bouquet I bought from TJ's , and I really liked them a lot so I painted just the stem.  Plus I love how the green vase picks up light!  Oh, how I love flowers.  Hope you enjoy this snippet
