Hydrangea Bouquet

24″ x 36″ oil on gallery wrap canvas with painted edges

This is a painting that I did in my studio. I used a photo of a smaller painting of mine as a reference. I was thinking that it might look nice in my dining room.

Sugar & Creamer Set

11″ x 14″ Oil on panel

I finally found time to paint a still life of my whimsical sugar bowl and creamer set. It was last year’s Christmas gift from my husband. He knew I would want to make a painting of it. The cherries were added for a touch of color.

I needed to be at Rail Walk the last few days.  So instead of plein air I practiced using a palette knife to paint a still life including one of my favorite blue bottles.
