Sunflowers in a Jug

I'm not sure why I'm painting flowers all of a sudden...my passion is really creating quirky women.  I think it's good for me to try different things.  I'm waiting for some fabric to arrive to enable me to finish a quilt I'm working on - just staying busy.

I painted this from my imagination.  I really should have set up a still life - my lighting is off - oh well...


what I did

Blue Chair with Geraniums

I've repainted the flowers on this piece so many times, I'm exhausted.  (It's not meant to be realistic, merely the suggestion of geraniums...)


I made my own stay wet tray to keep the acrylic paints from drying out.  A quick trip to the dollar store to purchase 9x13 cookie sheet and shammy.  Since the cookie sheet is steel (not stainless) I lined with with plastic, cut the shammy to size, soaked the shammy in water; placed it on cookie sheet and covered it with a piece of baking parchment cut to size - so far so good.  Now that I've finished painting for the day, I covered the whole thing with Press'n Seal.  I think it may keep it wet for a day or two - hoping it will any way!

A Blue Chair...

Taking a break from working on a new quilt.  Another still life...

cover up that blank canvas!

trying my best to keep the paints dry - it's hot in here!

Imagine that...

This painting changed dramatically from where I left off yesterday.


where I left off yesterday

from tulips to poppies with a palette knife


purple daisy like flowers are now lilacs

the vase is now white - background painted over too
