Sweet William original painting by Polly Jones

11" by 14" acrylic and mixed media collage on gallery wrapped canvas. SOLD

I've used some tissue paper as a collage element in the upper top background. I repainted the pattern on top of the paper. I have this flower known as Sweet William (also dianthus and also pinks) growing in pots outside. They are so hardy that they can survive the harsh winter around here. I have known a couple of Williams but they were definitely not what you would call sweet.

You're probably thinking, "Really, that bowl again?" I had a terrible craving to see orange and blue together and ended up getting out my blue willow bowl.

Strawberries on Dots original still life painting

8" square on gallery wrapped canvas. SOLD

I love how strawberries come in so many funky shapes...some rather elegant and some kind of stumpy, yet they are all wonderful, except for the old mushy ones. Okay, I think I'll stop thinking about it.

Happy Mother's Day

Here is my beautiful mother and sister. I just wanted to share this on Mother's Day and say thank you to both my wonderful mom and mother-in-law. I've been having a great day being spoiled by my daughter.

The last post I made was a mistake, sorry about that. I accidentally published while fiddling around with my blog by trying to add tabs at the top.
