farmer's market

Farmer's Market Bouquet ~ 12 x 12 ~ mixed media
We had some friends come and visit us over the weekend... and one of the things we enjoyed was the Frankfort (MI) farmer's market on Saturday. Our friends bought us this charming bouquet from one of the stalls. It was hard to pick out one... they were all just so fresh and beautiful. I thoroughly love fresh flowers...and a mixed summery bouquet is my favorite.

This painting started out on a bright orange background... and finished up with some oil pastel marks.

I'm trying to get in a painting session each day over the next few weeks... I'm going to be painting LIVE at a fundraiser on August 8th. Need to work the kinks out. (yikes)

Just making things up

"July 4"  12x12 Acrylic on Canvas panel
Ok.... now I'm just making things up. :-) One of the pleasures of being a painter. See the cool and interesting trail I've created? Like how I've made it pretty easy to get past those hills? You're welcome.

(It's also a study in greens and aerial perspective).

orchard dawn

Orchard Dawn ~ 12x12 ~ Acrylic
It's been a while.... I just jumped in yesterday. That's how I have to go about it when it's been a while...

It's easiest to leap if I start on top of a painting that didn't work out...and that explains the strange textures here and there.

"Precious" ~ 4x4 Acrylic, fabric, stitching
Any "No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency" fans out there? While she doesn't really resemble Mma Precious Ramotswe... she reminds me of her. Here's more about the series if you're interested...
I'm still having fun with these teeny tiny made up portraits... I'll have to do some manly angels soon, I think.

Hannah ~ 4x4 acrylic, collage, stitching
She seems so sweet to me.... and not just because of her halo.
