Lemon Sunshine in Depression Glass by Polly Jones

Lemon Sunshine in Depression Glass by Polly Jones

6" square acrylic and mixed media on canvas. Sold.

 The sun has been flooding into my studio again!  I haven't taken advantage of it by painting much lately, but have been doing some organizing.  We took Christmas down glad to have it put away but it's always a bit sad.  I grew up looking at my mom's collection of green depression glass, which is a great mood lifter.

Back to Three original mixed media painting by Polly Jones

Back to Three original mixed media painting by Polly Jones

I have just put this mandarin painting in a blue flow bowl for sale on Esty here.  I painted this one before Christmas but have been too busy enjoying family to post it.  Hope all is well with you and that you and yours have had wonderful holidays!

Monday Afternoon original mixed media painting by Polly Jones

18" by 24" acrylic and paper on canvas.  It has been grey for a week so I had to use these colors. This was an exercise in not getting fussy.  Sometimes my work ethic kicks in and I think I have to keep refining.  That can be disastrous when it gets too tight looking.  SOLD

Free Shipping until Friday and Good News

Hybrid Rapture, 24" by 36" acrylic mixed media painting by Polly Jones.    

The good news part is that this painting got accepted into a juried show in Houston, The Assistance League Show.  My husband also had a work accepted (marital harmony continues) as well as two friends....more on that later.

I'm having a promotion in my Etsy shop right now.  If you enter the code FREESHIPPING11 while checking out, you will automatically receive free shipping.  This sale will end on Saturday. If you live in Abilene and would get free shipping anyway, enter ABILENE11 for 10% off.  I'm happy to deliver locally.  Be sure and check out my sale section, I have added quite a few paintings, and am trying to make more room in my studio by clearing out old work.  The free shipping applies to all sale items as well.

Flow Blue with Pears original mixed media painting by Polly Jones

Flow Blue with Pears by Polly Jones
This is an 11" by 14" acrylic and mixed media on canvas. SOLD

It's my new favorite bowl! (sorry, old favorite one)  I found it at an estate sale recently for a kindred soul; she had a huge collection of blue and white dishes. What a reminder of where all our stuff is headed some day! This bowl is soooo old, made in Maastricht, Holland and has been mended.  I wonder how many owners it's had. Maps, and dictionary bits, and wrapping paper are embedded in the paint. I was happy with the contrasting texture in this painting.  The sun is finally shining again after many grey days and some snow.
