Gossip Girls

One of the girls could not make it to lunch but that didn't stop the other three from talking about her! I even heard one of them say "bless her sweet heart".  If you are from the south, you know that is a mean girl talking. Lesson - do not miss lunch with the girls!

These beautiful, sweet cherries are having a grand time in their martini glass! Mr. Big cherry is not at all happy to be ignored.

All Bottled Up

I found this cool glass jar with a shiny top, added the daisy and used my favorite color. Fun!

Solo Show

I have fallen in love with this turquoise color. My daisy series might be all turquoise and white.

Ice Angels

OK, we had an ice storm last night so that is more than likely where I picked up the title. Luckily, I had just brought home a bouquet of daisies giving me subject matter for several paintings. These little beauties last a very long time. Here comes my latest daisy series.

The Opening

Pomegranates are delicious even healthy (so I have read). This beauty was ripe and juicy when I popped it open. I just had to paint it! Now it goes in my oatmeal and yogurt.

Marching to the Kitchen

These shiny, silver measuring tools are so interesting to paint. They really have no color of their own. The only thing that you can paint is the reflected colors and shadows. What a great challenge!

Single Rose

The roses that I purchased are lasting longer that usual., probably because I am keeping them in my cold garage. Hopefully they will still be fresh for another painting tomorrow.

Yellow Rose and Teacup

This is another one of my Mom's teacups. She was also a great gardener. I remember a yard full of beautiful flowers every summer.

Tea Cup and Tangerine

This is one of Mom's tea cups from her collection. She loved orange herbal tea. I miss our tea and talks.

Winter is a good time to work on my kitchen skills.  I do like to cook but a recipe and measuring tools are a necessity. My husband is much better at putting together ingredients and coming up with a delicious meal.

Odd Couple

I saw these trees last fall. The contrast of color, size and texture was striking. Fortunately, I took a photo so I could paint this odd couple in my warm studio on a grey winter day.

Winter Fruit

These little devils do not give up their sweet seeds easily. I have finally gotten the hang of peeling a pomegranate.  They are definitely work effort!

Happy New Year!

OK, I know that I am a month late wishing everyone a Happy New Year. However, since I knew I could not paint for several weeks in January, I decided to take the month off.  The good news for me, the longer I stayed away from my studio, the more I wanted to paint! I am happy to report that I am back to painting almost everyday. Today is the start of MY new year.
This sunset represents the end of my first year on Daily Paintworks.  Painting almost every day has been the single best thing I have done to improve my painting skills.  Thank you Carol and David Marine!
