Sea and Sky..and an Apple

Apple in a Chinese Cup by Polly Jones

Sea and Sky by Polly Jones
I keep going back between still life and landscape painting. I think both of these turned out to be about light and how it gives life to what it shines on. The apple is 6" square canvas, and the sea and sky painting (from a photo Kenny took on our trip to Ireland) is 5" by 7" canvas. They may both be found here for sale.

Yellow Teapot and other new mixed media acrylic paintings by Polly Jones

I hope you had a fabulous Valentine's Day! I didn't take President's Day off because painting is what I do for fun as well as work:) Though I must admit most of today felt like work because I was having a difficult time working out the color relationships in the Yellow Teapot at the bottom of this post. Now that I've gone to the trouble of photographing it, Instagramming it and putting it in my Etsy shop I'll probably decide it isn't really finished after all. That's the way it seems to work.

These two tiny landscape paintings are 4" by 4" I take them seriously but they are rather therapeutic to paint. The one on the left is from memories of our trip to Scotland and the one on the right is from a drive to Brownwood, Texas. Both in my Etsy shop.

Granny Stripe by Polly Jones
This is the painting chosen by the winner @violettetide over on the giveaway on Instagram last week. Thanks everyone who participated in that. I appreciate all of the nice comments!
