6" x 6" in oil.
Now this one was a little harder to do, but no less fun to do.

Christmas Bauble

Another fun little 6" x 6" oil for the holiday small works show. I truly love doing reflections.

Lady Godiva

Chocolates as another 6" x 6" oil for the small works show.
Like anyone needs more sweets at the holidays. But these are calorie free.

A Little Cheesecake

A small 6 x 6 oil painting on cradled board of something for the sweet tooth. I did a large version of this in pastel, but wanted a looser version while trying my hand at these popular smaller sizes.

I think I could get into this! Am I the last to discover how fun these small ones are?

My Alma Mater

Went to Ball State University... Ball canning jars, good drink mugs, you know the stuff - that's the family that started the whole thing. So now we have salt shakers.

What would we do without it?

Fun little one I actually did on purpose. Sat it on my desk, when I should have been working. Sort of today's placeholder.

I used Derwent's Graphitint watercolor pencils. I think I want some more in other colors.

The Scoop

Sketching while watching TV tonite. Hard to hold the scoop with the left while drawing with the right.

Too tough a day to try to work with oils this evening. Trip to the dentist this afternoon and then to the bank with a haf a dwoopy fathe that looked thupid. Hence, the drawing.


Grandma's Towle Old Colonial... beautiful silverware that lives day in and day out wrapped in flannel blanketing. Small 5" x 7" oil on canvas. Did much of the background initially with oil pastels before going for the brush.

Frank Lloyd Light

8" x 8" oil on canvas. I have been wanting to try something with that warm light that looks so special.

Colt Navy 1851

8" x 8" Pastel on Wallis.
This is not a new one, but one of my favorites that needed dusting off - no pun intended. I miss my pastels but they are so hard to sell. I don't know about your area, but art 'under glass' just doesn't move and I don't understand why.

If I could get my oils to look like this - I'd be a happy gal.

Klimt crowns record art auction

Had to post, as Klimt is a favorite.

"A 1912 portrait, Adele Bloch-Bauer II, by the Austrian artist Gustav Klimt fetched almost $88m (£45m).

The painting was one of five Klimt works looted by the Nazis and returned to their owners earlier this year." (BBC)
