Half Full Blue Willow painting for Africa

6" square original painting on canvas.

I put this up on The Daily Paintworks Challenge for Africa. The UN has said up to 400,000 children in the Horn of Africa could die without aid and up to 11 million people require food assistance. This auction's purpose is so that all proceeds except shipping costs are donated to help out the hunger crisis in Africa. Here's where you can see my auction listing and Here is where you can see all the paintings in the DPW challenge. So go and bid why don't you!

In and Out Clementines original still life painting by Polly Jones

I just added a new version of the clementine painting on top here. Can't figure out how to move my photo to the bottom.

5" by 7" acrylic on canvas. Available on SOLD

We've had over 50 straight days of above 100 degrees here in Abilene. All that sunshine has been great for lighting up still life set ups, but, we so desperately need rain.

I had good news today that Linda at River Oaks Gallery sold one large painting and three small ones! The large one, "A Romance" was a little hard to say goodbye too even though I've learned to let go of my work. It makes room for new work... both literally and emotionally.

These were what was left after a lovely salmon dinner the other night. It kept distracting me, so I had to paint it.
