Bulbous, oil on panel, 9 x 12 inches
I did not intentionally choose items that are essentially the same shape—bulbous. But I love how they hang together. My friend Randy noted the change in my palette. I had not really noticed til she mentioned it, hmmm.

Pace of Painting

Bulbous (in progress)
It is always a challenge to find time to paint. But as a freelance graphic designer, I am able to eek out some time, if I can stay motivated. I didn’t really make a resolution for the New Year, more of an intention to put painting on top of my list of priorities. I intend to begin every morning in my studio. It makes me happy.

Finding some light on a dreary day

Scattered, oil on panel, 8 x 8 inches
Started this painting when the sun was shining through the studio window—finishing off the grapefruit was such a nice boost to this dark morning. I think a little lemon study might be in order next.

Flour Power

Flour Power, oil on canvas, 18 x 24 inches

After a long break for the holidays, I was able to get back in the studio to finish this painting. If you recall, my dog Spot ate the eggs from the still life. Darn, if that bad boy didn’t hit them again, even though I had posted this little sign on my studio door.
