Daises and sunflowers are my favorite flowers. They are simple in design and color, but their happy faces bring happiness and cheer. This little daisy charmed me with her upturned face soaking up the sun. Opening bid is $20 or you can buy it now for $45. Let me know if I can help you with framing!
"Bumble Cafe" 3x4 inch oil (Image slightly larger than the actual painting)
One of the great sounds of a summer garden on a warm day is the buzz of bumble bees collecting nectar from the many-colored "cafes" that they find. How to simplify the wings and still have them read properly was a challenge, especially on such a tiny canvas.
The last two years has been a mixed bag of big events in my family, ranging from my sister's cancer, my son's wedding, my father's severe stroke, my husband's retirement and other major celebrations. My focus has been on painting in my available time and I gave myself permission not to spend as much time on the business end of art. This post begins my return to connecting with all of you online, so I'm resurrecting my once a week blog post. I'm excited to share my latest work and the progress that I'm making in the studio!
"Amber Eyes" was painted from a photo that I took about 5 or 6 years ago. The image has stayed in the back of my mind all this time as one that I wanted to paint. I ran across this pretty tabby while roaming through a tack barn here in Colorado and I fell in love with her sweet nature (That shows in her eyes doesn't it?). Being in charge of rodent control in the barn meant that she only had sporadic company, so she was happy to great all visitors!
