I am Your Master

Anyone that has ever been owned by a Yorkie knows how demanding they are. Their attitude is "What are you going to do for me now!". But, of course, they are so darn cute, you have to obey :-)

New Baby

This little guy was born at the Greenville, SC, Zoo earlier this year. Exciting times for all of us.

Looking through the Glass

Kind of a play on words. I was thinking "Through the Looking Glass". Anyway, I am intrigued with the distortions of the cherries behind the glass.

Speed Dating

It looks like two of the sweet cherry ladies are interested in the lemons. One of the cherries is, however, making a quick escape. I am sure that would be me!!

Lemons and Blueberries

Have you seen the cute animal "odd couple" videos online. I felt this way about the lemons hanging out with the blueberries. Very odd but happy together.

Circle Dance

These sweet cherries are happy ladies having a little dance party of their own.

I Ate Them

One of the nice things about painting fruit is that you get to eat it when your are done. Granted, these slices were a bit warm after sitting under my light but I enjoyed them.

Cuddle Up

Two knock out roses from my garden. The weather has been so hot, even they are struggling. Most of my flowers are having a difficult time this summer. I'll just focus on fruit for a while.

Orange and Blueberries

The blueberries spotted and invader and decided to attack! This must be how they come up with all those new fruit drink flavors.

Yellow Bellied Sap Sucker

OK, this really isn't a yellow bellied sap sucker but after I painted this cute little bird, I learned that one of our trees has been compromised (think dying) by the birds called yellow bellied sap suckers!!

These two little oranges jumped into the square bowl in hopes of avoiding the measles. All the white dots freaked them out!

The blue background really makes the tangerines pop! I also like the square glass bowl holding round fruit sitting on a round dish on top the straight edged cloth. Did you get that?http://www.dailypaintworks.com/buy/auction/542844

Early Evening

Another sunset on the gulf coast of Florida. I never get tired of them. This and a glass of wine, life is good!

Sun Burst

Another beautiful evening. Each sunset is completely different. I love the shafts of sunlight shinning through the clouds.

Windy Evening

The Gulf was pretty choppy this particular evening. The wind was strong but the sunset was still beautiful.

Walking down ocean drive in Indian Rocks, FL, I saw this cute little cottage. Since it was cloudy, I decided to paint!

Racing Home

My husband and I were lucky to spend several days on the Gulf Coast of Florida. Every night was a spectacular sunset. I am painting from the photos that I took during our visit.

I cut up the rest of my lemon. The slices will not last another day so..... on to a new series. I have some halos, maybe I will let them star in some paintings.

Get Off!

This cute little lemon was happily sunning herself when two dudes strolled onto her beach towel. Thankfully, she was successful in chasing them off.

End of the Line

This is the last sunflower painting from this bunch. I really like the blue/yellow/orange combination. Happy Spring (almost)!http://www.dailypaintworks.com/buy/auction/525592

Bottom Right

This pretty, happy sunflower will probably only last  one more day. Great to have her as my studio mate the last several days.http://www.dailypaintworks.com/buy/auction/524152

The Other Cheek

My sunflowers are holding up in the studio. Since I like to work in a series, let's see how many different positions this beauty can give me.

Makes me Smile

It is beginning to feel like spring in South Carolina. While I was at the store, a bunch of sunflowers were waiting for me to pick them up and create some happy paintings.

Oranges and Green Stripes

Another new piece of paper that I found at a craft store. I think the green stripes do a nice job of setting off the round oranges.http://www.dailypaintworks.com/buy/auction/506151

Soap Box

Well, it is that time again, Elections. My little oranges are getting in on the action. Mr./Ms. Orange is promising everything you ever wanted and then some. However, I like the new orange, paper with dots.

Blue Dots

I found this really cool paper with blue and white dots. It works great as a complement to my oranges.

Another Oldie

I have painted this car once before but from another angle. It is from a collection of my friends sister's friend's father. Anyway, some great guy's car collection.

Everything is Coming Up Daisies

The great thing about painting daisies is that they last a very long time in the studio. I love the blue and yellow color combination and pleased with the glass vase.

Thursday, January 21, 2016


They are talking about snow here in the upstate of South Carolina and I am thinking spring and painting daisies. Oh my! A girl can dream.
