Pink Posie for Mom

Ok, so I am addicted to painting. Who whoulda thunk it. LOL I love to paint to the point that I wish I could do it seven days a week. Only if that happened I would be homeless. LOLOL

I painted this for my Mom and was happy that she loved it. She even told me she knows exactly where she is going to put it. I love doing this, but I even love it more when people like what I do. I love having them hanging all over the house, but love it even more when they leave my house for a new home. Still need to venture into a waterfall. hmmmmm, next week? I think so. :-)

Stormy Night

This weekend was seascape weekend. My goal was to make my sister Patti a painting and her request was a seascape. My first attempt I wasn't happy with. I called that one "Windy Shore". (The painting with the Palm Trees.) I figured it was a good first try, so would work on a second one.

The result is "Stormy Night." I really like this one. Funny part is that Patti likes Windy Shore. LOLOL I tried to convince her that Stormy Night was a better choice, but she really likes Windy Shore. Go figure! I guess we are more critical of our own work. So Stormy Night will stay with me.

Gris Mill Painting

Here is this week's painting. I wish the photo would have come out better. This one was a lot of fun. A lot of detail, but fun. I like how the colors came together and how the moon is reflected in the water. Really enjoyed doing this one.

Sunflower Bouquet

Finished this painting earlier today and after a couple adjustments, I really like it. It is not in oil however, but in acrylic. I want to learn other mediums so gave this a whirl.

Right now it is on sale at Hope to see how it goes. I plan on doing an acrylic landscape next. I am not a HUGE acrylic fan, but I do like the fact that it is quick drying. I won't be giving up oils though.

Winter's Reflection

I finished this unique painting tonight. It was not an easy one with the trees reflected in the water, but the more I look at it, the more I like it. This one was made especially for my little sister Ruth. It is a bit different from what she requested, but she said she likes it so that is what counts. If she didn't like it, I was going to keep it and make her another one. So, now she has to make a trip to Atlanta to pick it up. LOL

Magestic Autumn

I painted in the New Year. LOL Actually this is a gift for a very dear friend of mine in North Dakota. DeNae and I were friends when I was living there over 15 years ago and we just got re-connected. I told her I was going to paint something for her and asked what she would like. She said landscape in earth tones. here is the result. I sure do hope she likes it.
