The Squat Tomato - daily painting

juicy tomato painting

My husband named this one, because the first thing he said was "that's a fat tomato". I think they're cute when they're fat.

Denver from City Park

A view of the Denver skyline from City Park. I love how colors and shapes change when the sun starts to set.

The vegetables

I couldn't stop with just three kinds of veggies, the red onion is my favorite. I guess I'm in an illustrative mood.

More little watercolors

Here's another little set of aceo watercolors. They're just so much fun to work on, AND I can paint them on my lunch break which makes my desk job a little better :) I think they would be so cute to hang in a kitchen or a breakfast nook.

I've finally gotten around to making paintings to cover up the awkward fireplace vent holes in our living room. It took me a while to think of something that I would be ok with looking at everyday. I decided on this little scene, that I painted on two 16x16 canvases that I had lying around. Here are my 6x6 versions which are on sale here

The cotton field - daily painting

This painting wasn't all that I was hoping it would be. When I started I had a much different idea in my head, but this is what was determined to come out I suppose.

Art Cards, Editions and Originals

This year Christmas meant that I got to spend a relaxing week in California, but it also meant that I'd be without my oils for a while. Which seemed like such a waste since I was going to have so much free time, and usually I'm fighting for a few hours a week set aside for painting. Luckily I have a travel watercolor set, which I purchased in Florence :), so I tried making a few of these little ACEO drawings. And even though watercolors aren't my favorite these were super fun to make.
