Plums in a Catherinholm Bowl original painting

8" acrylic and mixed media on gessoed masonite panel. SOLD

My color scheme came from a rug pattern I saw in a magazine. I've done this Catherinholm's bowl twice before, here and here.

Little Deer original mixed media painting

A little weird, I know, but it's fun to do something different. It is much harder to paint a tiny plastic deer than I would have guessed. Did another collage I like better and plan to post it tomorrow. 6" square on canvas.

Teacup Party original contemporary still life painting

5" by 7" acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas SOLD

I had fully intended to paint a soap dispenser that I have by my sink. I'd made a resolution to paint only things that looked contemporary for a while. Well, after moving that soap dispenser around forever, trying to get a good set up, I noticed my little teacup with this pink umbrella sitting in it over on the still life prop shelf and changed course. Believe it or not this dainty painting was done with Led Zeppelin blasting away. Kenny was in charge of the playlist while we both painted. We've each been having an art crisis but are recovering.

Sunflower and Pitchers progress mixed media painting

16" by 2o" original mixed media painting

Still working on this one. It's not quite finished. I'm trying to work with the idea of refractions that are carried out in the glass and also with the use of collaged papers. I have loved painting pictures of glass for so long and it's fun to try new ways of doing this. Found a wonderful blog called Paper Paintings by Elizabeth St. Hilaire Nelson who has beautifully integrated collage and images and paint.
