Half Full

Half Full is one of my tall juice glasses "half full" of refreshing cranberry juice.  It was painted for an art exhibit with a theme of "Perspectives".   I think everyone has at one time or another heard of the old saying... "Is your glass half empty or half full?"

Berry Pail - A Full Day

The last of the series on the berry pail.  In this one I added some wild daisies from a field.  Hope you enjoy!

Berry Pail - Goin' Pickin'

This is the second in the series of the berry pail paintings... a 5x7.  I love these old enamelware kitchen items.  They tell a story and have a lot of interest.

I painted this berry pail in three poses... closed lid, open lid and closed lid with daisies.  (Too many of one subject... :(  which I will change up in the future.)    I had mixed way too much paint and didn't want to waste it so I painted two more versions of it :)   Each has it's own statement to make...

Here's the first one completed (6x6 on linen):

Fresh Picked

At a recent trip to the market I purchased some beautiful tomatoes still on the vine.    I decided to capture them on canvas before enjoying them in my salad!  Here is the finished painting (6x6) .

Gettin' Back to Business "Just a Little Tea"

I haven't been posting my work lately... primarily because I've been working on smaller pieces for two exhibits coming up.    It has been difficult to stop for the progress photos  so I'll be posting the finished products for a while.

Thanks for looking!

This first is a small tea pot I picked up at a recent auction -
