Lean and Green

"Lean and Green"

I just can't help it, the shapes and colors of these green onions inspire me to create a painting!  The farmer's market is still going, even though there isn't as much as there is in the summer, I still find some great subjects.

The Beginning, The Middle, The End

"The Beginning, The Middle, The End"

I had this floater farm specially made by the man who makes all of my tiny canvases. Alex, of Pacific Coast Canvas, use to be a furniture maker and then went on to stretching canvases and making frames too.  These canvases are each 2" x 4".  I thought a series would go together well in this beautiful frame.  I won an honorable mention in a local art show and the judge commented that the presentation was really beautiful, so the prize should really go to Alex ; D

True Love, Say Yes, 2 Love

"True Love, Say Yes, 2 Love"

I really love painting little collections of mini paintings.  I enjoy painting subjects in a series. I like when  they are all displayed together and tell a story.  Then someone will purchase one from a series and there it goes!  It's all good, I'm having fun.  Especially when I think what is this month about and then I put some things together and paint them to describe the month, it's really fun! This one sold today at Fast Frame in Morgan Hill, one of the galleries I bring my monthly collections to, so that's always good!

Ocean View

"Ocean View"

I love that I can drive to the coast in about 35 to 40 minutes.  The way there is beautiful, so I don't even count the driving time.  It's easy to get my hit of the ocean then come home to where it's pretty warm.
I am going to my "One on One" training session at the Apple store today.  I am excited,  I have so much to learn.  Then it's home to face getting prepared for my taxes ; /  I was not born to do paper work and numbers!

Happy Camper

"Happy Camper"

Took a drive to the coast last weekend and spotted this little camper parked right at the edge of the ocean.  Talk about a perfect view!  It's Super Bowl Sunday and my house is going to be full of people and food.  I not a sports fan, but every one surrounding me is.  I think I will hang out with my sketchbook and see if I can get some drawing time in, free models!  Anyway...GO NINERS!!!!
