"Pansies"



"Pansies"
Oil, 9x4"
Frame 9 3/4 x 4 3/4" 
Handle to handle 11"


I painted the flowers from life and decided to just add the flowers without 
the pots to go with this antique frame that I purchased from an antique 
show. Not sure how old the frame is, I am guessing late 1800's to early 
1900's. I collect antique frames and it is hard to part with them. I admire the
professional craftsmanship that went into them. I purchase new or old frames
from all over the country, I just love frames and how they complement
the painting. I will search high and low for 
that perfect frame.

"Farmhouse Gerberas"


"Farmhouse Gerberas"
oil, 8x10

 Click here to view my small works gallery

Painted from life but it was a good thing that I painted the flowers that day
because the next day they had moved a lot. Not real fun when they move, have
to remember what they looked like, start over, or take a picture before they move.

"Mini Daffodils in Delft"


"Mini Daffodils in Delft"
Oil 8x10"
Sold

These miniature daffodils were growing in our garden and I put them in a delft pot. Delft is a blue used in Dutch art that was painted on pottery, ceramic and many more objects. It was founded by 
David Anthoniz van der Pieth in 1653 that originated in Delft. The history on it is very interesting.

"Primroses in Red"


"Primroses in Red"
oil, 8x10"
Sold

Earlier this spring I brought these primroses into my
studio to paint. I loved the look of the deep red flowers
against the yellow centers.
I will be doing a demo at the gallery I'm in, went to the nursery
and picked up a gerbera and some pansies to paint.
We have been working on our bathroom remodel, painting walls
picking out a vanity etc., so haven't been painting lately and am
excited to put that brush to the canvas instead of walls.

"Gerberas"


"Gerberas"
oil, 8x10"
Sold

I set these wonderful gerberas in my studio and painted them from
life.  What caught my interest to paint them was the deep rich color and
the beautiful display of their petals.  
Spring is here and 100's of annuals are starting to bloom. I love going to
the nursery, I admire all of them. Always looking for some to bring home to
paint first then plant.

"Tulips"


"Tulips"
oil, 8x10"


I really enjoyed painting these beautiful tulips and how the light
hit the vase and frame.
The abstract painting led me to paint the wall with abstract
touches too. It seemed to pull it all together.
