Just finished these tulips and am quite happy. I love working with red, I guess I just love the color red. I scanned this image into my computer and no glare and really came out very nice, so I am going to try to scan in the Squash. The weather is beautiful today and the studio is filled with sunshine. I love it.
This little painting is 8" x 10". Sorry about the glare, I seem to be having a problem photographing my paintings lately. This painting was hanging in my sister's home but she is going to downsize so gave it back to me and I decided to offer it to you all. It is $275 framed.
I finished three small paintings I had started last week. The Bee is framed and it looks great. Someone asked me about the price of these smaller paintings and the 6x6 and the 5x7 are $100 framed. We had very warm weather today. I think we broke all records, it was 88 degrees.
I have been an artist for as long as I can remember. I went to college when I was 37 years old. I loved it so much, I was a sponge and absorbed anything and everything about art. I started out wanting to be a portrait artist but ended up using pencil and colored pencils. I made quite a name for myself with my drawings. I won many awards. When I needed a break from that I went into oil sticks and just loved them and again did very well with awards. I finally went back to my oils but always felt frustrated with them I wanted to be free from all constraints, I am now working in acrylics and loving them. So now the sky is the limit. I just want to go and do everything I feel and want to express.
