Harbor Commission - 12x12

Here's that harbor commission that I was scouting out a while ago.  I love commissions of things I already love to paint :)

Carpinteria Clouds - 6x12

Right when I said we don't get any cool clouds Carp decided to prove me wrong with a thunderstorm and hail, I love when that happens.  

I also loved these clouds above the ocean,  I think it made for a really simple, clean composition.

Nevada Clouds III - 6x6

I woke up with one of the worst migraines ever this morning.  The first sunny morning in weeks and I was stuck inside hoping the advil would do something and wishing I had a cornflower blue refrigerator like Rachael Ray.  

In other news, my new epson printer is supposed to come today! So I can start selling prints soon :) Stay tuned...

Nevada Clouds - 8x10

I always want to paint clouds, but we don't often get any here on the coast.  At least not the kind I'm looking for, fog is just lazy clouds, and that's pretty boring.  So I made sure to capture some on the way back home from Vegas a few weekends ago.

Santa Barbara Harbor XXV - 11x14

As soon as I walked by this canoe I knew I needed to paint it.  The sun was hitting everything just right and the water was my favorite green color.

Santa Barbara Street - 6x12

I love when paintings are easy to name.  And Santa Barbara St. is always my chosen route, way better than Garden or Laguna.

Round Pears - 5x5

My favorite types of pears to paint are the ones with great angles and curves...well Trader Joes didn't have any of those, just these round fat ones.  Good news is that they taste just as good :)

Tangerine Trio - 6x6

Studio cat stole one of my giant art erasers this morning, and he's been playing fetch with it for about an hour now.  He looks pretty ridiculous carrying it around in his mouth.  

I think this is my favorite of the all the tangerine still lifes I've done, maybe it's just that I love orange and blue together.

Avocado Accordion - 5x7

Sorry to everyone who received a duplicate email this morning.  I really don't know why that happened, I was adjusting the photos on some of my older posts, but I don't know why that would cause it to send twice.  Hopefully it's fixed now.  

This week and I are just not getting along! Which is why I'm posting this at midnight! Ok time to sleep...

Leadbetter Cliff - 12x12

A little vacation was exactly what I needed! Now I'm ready to get back to work.  Maybe I'll post some trip photos later, but for now here's a view of one of my new favorite seaside cliffs. I walked pretty far out in the water to get this shot, my dress was not so dry afterwards, next time I'll remember a swimsuit.

Labor Day Boat - 6x6

Posts this week are going to be sparse, I'm declaring myself on vacation! And even though we don't leave town until Thursday we have guests with us until then, so that counts :)

Birds on a Roof - 6x18

I found these very fun long panels, I think I'll do a couple of beach scenes on them next.  But first I just had to paint these guys strutting on this rooftop.
