Work in Progress ginger jar and daylilies painting by Polly Jones

work in progress by Polly Jones
I've been working on a couple of 30" by 40" canvases.  I ordered new supplies and am really liking the Paramount brand gallery wrap canvas. It's sturdier and will resist warping better.  I'll show you the other one later when I work it out better.

Winter makes you do things and Free Shipping on Society6 art prints

I have a few prints over at Society6 where they are offering free shipping until midnight PST if you use this code  I believe this code only works in my shop but there are lots of other artists and designers over there, it's a fun site to visit.
I Dream of Daffodils by Polly Jones
I revisited an older daffodil painting, changing the stripes to make them a more vibrant background for the flowers. Winter makes you do things like that.  It won't be long before I can paint daffodils from life!  They are already poking through the ground in my yard. This painting is in my Etsy store here.

Ginger Jar and Patchwork Italy original mixed media paintings by Polly Jones

Ginger Jar by Polly Jones
I'm going to have to stop working on smaller paintings and gear up to make some big pieces I need for an upcoming show. More about that later:)  This one is on Etsy here.  It makes me happy to look at it on this grey day.

Patchwork Italy by Polly Jones
Here's another stab at landscape. The surface is crazy up close, full of brushwork and some collage. 11" by 14" acrylic mixed media on wood panel, here in my Etsy store.

Pear paintings

Monday Pears by Polly Jones
12" square on wood panel.  I experimented with some Liquitex texture gel, ceramic stucco.  Let me tell you, it was so much fun to use, reminded me of icing. Click on the image to get an idea of the surface if you want. Sold

Pears on Pink by Polly Jones
This 8" by 10" painting was done on request and is now headed to Australia!  I love it when that happens.

Grapefruit in Half by Polly Jones
Finally, an 8" square mixed media on wood panel. If you've been following my blog for very long, you've probably seen that blue willow bowl before.  Sold
