Daffodil Painting, Small Flower Painting, Daily Painting, 6x8" Oil

Another small flower painting.  I have really been inspired with flowers this spring.  I am experimenting with a few different techniques, trying to find and perfect m"my style".  My art seems to be evolving so quickly right now, and, I think it is from my studies with Elio Comacho.

 I struggled for several hours over this little 6x8" painting, but, in the end I was pleased with the results.  I wanted to stay very loose and added lots of medium to my paint.

Thank you for viewing my art today.

White Rose Painting, 8x10x1.5" Flower Still Life, Flower Painting, Floral Painting

Birthday Flowers!!

purchase here
Way back in December, my son and his wife sent me some beautiful flowers for my birthday.  The first thing I did was photograph them.  Then I forgot about the photos!

I finally found them last week, and decided to try my hand at one.  I am very intimidated  by flowers.  They seem so complex and I rarely meet that sweet spot between too little or too much detail.  I am not so sure about this one, but I do like the colors.

Try, try and try again!

Tribute to Courtney

 This is off subject, but I want to take a moment to celebrate my granddaughter and her many years of hard work.



Courtney is graduating from medical school in a few weeks and has been awarded a residency in OB/GYN at Mayo Clinic in Rochester MN.

Mayo in Rochester is the number one rated hospital in the world, and they only had five OB/GYN residency openings.

I am so proud of my granddaughter, the doctor, and know she will treat her patients with compassion and dedication.  CONGRATULATIONS to her and her wonderful Mom!

Rose Painting, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, 6x8" Oil Painting on Panel

Yes, another rose painting!  But quite different than my last post.


Purchase here 
110. + shipping
 I have been on quite a flower painting jag lately, and still have more to come.  I spent the month of April in the Blue Ridge Mountains, and was inspired by the beautiful show from Mother Nature.  Flowers were everywhere, especially the trees and bushes.

Now that I am home again, I cannot stop looking at my stash of photos and painting flowers every day.

Yesterday, I went to Bok tower, here in Florida, with my paint buddies, and got inspired all over again.  Miles of beautiful gardens!



Thanks for viewing my blog today.

Dolphin Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting

 

 Years ago, I painted a dolphin after visiting the Florida Keys.  When our local art club announced a contest, I decided to enter.




The idea was to submit a design that could be re-created as a mosaic, which would then be embedded in the sidewalk of the local art district.


Since I live on the coast of Florida, I thought this dolphin painting would be perfect.  Apparently I was correct because I won the contest.  


I have never attempted mosaic but have always had a desire to try.  Now I will be working with an accomplished mosaic artist to complete my mosaic.  The idea that it will be embedded in the sidewalk for hopefully many years is very appealing to me.  Wish me luck as I attempt this new procedure.
