For Lucy original mixed media painting by Polly Jones

For Lucy by Polly Jones
I have been working on this one off and on for a few weeks, posted some process shots on Instagram. It's named "For Lucy" after a chimpanzee in a story I heard on the radio.  Hidden in the tablecloth is a picture of a chimpanzee from a volumn of The Golden Book Encylopedia. 30" by 40" acrylic mixed media on wood panel. In my Etsy store here.

Orchid Grid original mixed media painting by Polly Jones

Orchid Grid by Polly Jones
 This is what I've been busy with lately, inspired by flowers my husband gave me for our  anniversary.  I was really taken by the way the bloom stems offshoot from the main stem.  It measures 24" by 12"  and is mixed media on canvas.  On Etsy here.

 Are you on Instagram?  I've been posting over there under pollyjonesart and finally getting the hang of  it a bit.

Around the Curve, landscape painting by Polly Jones

Around the Curve by Polly Jones
Happy Monday to you!  I'm sharing a couple of paintings done on my trip to Italy this summer.  These scenes were from photos taken out of the window of the train with my Iphone.  I can't remember exactly where, but I think it was on the way from Florence to Rome.  I've listed the 8" by 10" one on the bottom in my Etsy store here.

Meanwhile I've been at work on a pesky, wayward flower painting.  Hopefully I will resolve it soon and show it to you.
