More Birds!

Because the first one was so much fun to paint, and there were lots more birds!
I had to paint another. :) One more??

My mom has such an amazing collection of metal, stone, and ceramic birds. They perch on her kitchen windowsill and bring so much color and life to the space. Not to mention you can't help but feel happy just looking at these little cuties!

Another in my foods series--mostly attracted to the colors and great forms here. It was a lot of fun to paint!

Lily of the Valley

One of the first spring flowers growing out in our yard. My girlfriend actually let me cut two hunks from her clematis vine a few years ago. I was so pleasantly surprised to discover the Lily of the Valley included in both parts that I planted. Double bonus!

At the Union

Thought this canvas was the perfect size for painting a chair from the union. The chairs come in teal and yellow too, but the orange is my favorite--especially with the lake behind. There is something about this chair that just screams fun times in the summer.

Beckett the Boxer

This young lady was commissioned for a friend of my husbands. She is quite a talented dog, seen here balancing a piece of pepperoni on her nose. The word is she has steely will-power and will balance it there until told "ok" before attempting to flip it into her mouth. I love a pup with personality!

Beach Umbrella

Beach umbrella because I've always wanted to paint one, but with stripes?? Not sure what I was thinking! I do have a thing for black and white stripes, although I decided to go more blue here. It was a great challenge.

Lilac & Lemon

Remember my glass addiction? :) This tiny bud vase has been with me for decades and is the perfect thing to hold a little cut flower like this lilac. I set it up in the morning sunlight next to this half lemon and thought the color combination was beautiful.
