Sweet Reflections

12" x 12" oil on cradled board. Metal, glass and liquid.
What was I thinking? Nothing like a challenge.

I really like the almond kisses but wanted to paint the silver foil. They are much tinier than one realizes.

8" x 8" oil on cradled board.

Just Between Friends

6" x 6" oil on cradled board. Got a cupboard full of these. Of course, mine were a Christmas present a couple of years ago and the other side sports my name and art from the 50s.

Jimmy and the Girlfriend

Well, my husband has a girlfriend named Molly.

It's a mutual admiration society. When he was tooling around in the early fall, he had me take this picture because Molly insisted on riding on the back.

Say "car ride" or get out the keys and she's ready. If she manages to get in the car she sits upright in the passenger seat, ready to go. Then when she won't get out, and you go to the passenger side to open the door, she moves to the driver's seat.

So it's a Christmas present and a surprise. 12 x 12 oil. (Not for sale.)

Life is Just...

Feels so good to get back to what I like to do best... light and metal. This is 12 x 12 oil. Found the little chrome doggie dish at the grocery store and had an ah ha moment!

Holly Holly Christmas

And... one more! The gallery wanted more small ornaments for the show. Can't complain on that point. So now we have a decorated ornament. Photo looks a little flat here. 6 x 6 oil.

Cadmium Orange

8" x 8" oil. Again, really working on loosening up the brushwork. I'm pleased with this one.

Juicy Fruit

8" x 8" oils on cradled board.
Ah, I enjoyed this one tremendously. Tried something new with Raw Umber gesso ground and worked the color from there. Seems richer somehow. I am definitely going to explore this further. I am trying to use bigger brushes and looser strokes.
