Paint Tubes

My favorite colors have always been blues and greens. However, when it comes to painting, I just love using all of the juicy reds and oranges. My all-time favorite one is Williamsburg Oils alizarin orange. It is the perfect consistency, gorgeously transparent, and wonderful with cadmium yellow. Next in line are cadmium red medium and alizarin crimson--I adore them together. Decided they would make an excellent trio for a still life painting.

Medium Boiled

When you cut open an egg and all you see is pure beauty... Probably the single best thing about being an artist or an appreciator of art, seeing extraordinary in the ordinary.

The Mill

When I want toast and coffee while at home in Wisconsin, I make it. If you want toast and coffee while in San Francisco, you go to The Mill. Delicious breads and coffees--I had some toast with almond butter and a latte; my sister had toast with blackberry jam and a cappuccino. All served on locally made stone dishes. It was a wet morning, but we sat outside and spilled our souls anyway. :)

Hog Island Oysters

This fun little painting was inspired by one of the best meals I've ever had. We went to Hog Island Oyster Co. and had 'em every way I think. Cold oysters are always my favorite, but the cooked ones are prettier to paint.

Daffodil Dreamin'

We have had unseasonably warm weather here in Southern Wisconsin. The mid-60s in February, which as far as I can remember, is unheard of! Received some beautiful tulip and daffodil bulbs and completed the spring dream.
