Painting Scissors

I thought it would be fun to paint these pretty spools of thread - and it was! But the scissors gave me fits.

More coffee please

Starting the day about an hour and a half earlier requires more coffee than my old routine. Empty cups become subjects.

Fits and Starts

I started this painting early in the day and after painting-interruptous ...

Well,  I started the day with so much resolve. “I am going to spend the whole day painting,” I told myself. By 9:30 am, my husband David was packing up the car to go to the UVa Football Open Practice in Northern Virginia. I deferred because of the threat of rain, and my big plans for a day in the studio. But then the Wahoo in me came forth, and I just couldn’t resist -- I just had to don the orange and blue and go see my Charlie (our youngest) in his Cavalier uniform. Rained the whole time - fabulous.

Friday Fish



Growing up, we always had tuna fish sandwiches for lunch and fish sticks or tuna casserole for dinner.

Breakfast painting

So, one of the hardest things about painting every day is figuring out what to paint. Keep in mind these are small painting that I try to get done before going to work each morning. Often I end up just painting my breakfast before eating it.

Birthday Wishes




Painting to celebrate my birthday. Today was day 30 of a painting-a-day practice. Stay tuned, I will post something every day -- like it or not.
